® Videojet BX6000 Series Binary Array Ink Jet Printers • Fast drying inks enable printing on broad range of materials • Line speeds up to 967 feet per minutes (295 m/min.) for exceptional throughput • Dual 2-inch printheads from one cabinet provide maximum flexibility • Optimum print quality during continuous operation ensured via auto-phasing function Versatile, Dependable High Speed Printing The Videojet BX Series Binary Array Ink Jet Printers ® Throughput is the name of the game for your business — the more jobs you can print, and the faster you get them done, the more money you make. The BX6000 Series printers are designed to let you print an unlimited variety of jobs — quickly and reliably. Whether it’s basic addressing of mail pieces or more complex printing of graphics and logos on difficult to print on substrates, the BX6000 Series printers provide unparalleled value to your operation. The Videojet BX6000 Series printers have a 2-inch (51 mm) print band. A dual-head configuration that operates off a single print engine provides the ability to print four continuous inches (102 mm), or separate the heads to print on different areas of the target piece, i.e., an address and indicia. With a 128 x 256 dpi resolution, the BX6000 Series printers provide solid print quality for addresses, maps and other basic graphics, promotional messaging, loyalty cards and a wide range of other applications. Get Up and Running Quickly and Keep Performing A computer initiated start-up sequence minimizes manual operator procedures and gets you into print mode in a matter of minutes. Print shut down is just as simple, with a couple of quick mouse clicks doing nearly all the work. To ensure maximum print performance, previous generations of binary array printers required operators to periodically stop the line and run a phasing routine. The BX6000 Series is all about uptime, utilizing an automatic phasing process that optimizes print quality without any operator intervention. Prints on Your Choice of Substrates Videojet offers a wide variety of fast drying inks ranging from MEK to acetone, which means you can expand your business to include jobs printed on aqueous or UV coated or other difficult to print high gloss stocks. Print dries to the touch in one second — unassisted — so you can eliminate dryers and their associated high energy costs. Red, green and blue inks enable you to add a splash of color to the print job, and specialty inks are available for printing on plastic cards and for unmatched bar code readability. We design Videojet fluids for optimum performance in our printers, providing reduced operating costs, increased uptime and maximum print quality. Five-liter ink and make up reservoirs provide longer, uninterrupted production runs, and our TotalSource® program can offer significant savings on Videojet fluids. High-Speed Digital Printing The Perfect Combination Clocking in at 967 feet per minute (that translates to over 50,000 mail pieces per hour with in-line automatic mail sorting), the BX6000 Series printers are ready to take on your fastest throughput (including verified readable Postnet bar codes printed at over 700 feet per minute!). Whatever your imaging requirements – addressing, ingredient statements, bar codes – the BX6000 Series delivers high image quality for your high speed application. An often overlooked element of print quality is the paper path. Videojet’s Cheshire® line of ink jet bases provides unmatched performance in vacuum transport and friction feed technology, with benchmark features like independent feeder speed and transport controls, automatic space control and Feeder Sort Control to provide a visible gap between batches. Designed to provide vibration-free superior media control, a Cheshire base and BX6000 Series printer deliver an unbeatable combination when high quality print is required. Flexible Configurations and Universal Compatibility Dual Printheads for Maximum Flexibility The BX6000 Series printer can be used as a stand-alone printer or as part of an in-line printing application. The BX6000 system can be integrated with a variety of production equipment – web presses, bindery, production lines – whatever your application, this printer can handle it. The compact design of the printhead, a 20’ (6 m) umbilical, and the ability to print in any angle (360° rotation), even straight up, means you can produce your digital image on just about any substrate in just about every in-line application imaginable. For bindery applications, position one printhead upside down underneath the plow station, and add a second printhead printing at 90° — on the same plow station! You can even roll the BX6000 Series printer from job to job as necessary.
