IV12-Dot Print Head System Overview









The IV-12 Dot Print head takes Diagraph's valve jet technology a step further with "serial" electronic architecture and refined print characteristics. The IV12 dot has been re-engineered to have smaller dot size with closer spacing between dots.  The resulting print is crisp and highly legible with reduced ink consumption. With smaller print capabilities the IV12 becomes a utility player that can perform primary product coding as well as case coding.  The IV12 has 1/2" print height and with a 5 dot font can print characters 3/16” tall in two lines of stacked print. Ink supply is available in 13 oz. pressurized cans or with bulk containers.   The IV12 dot print head can use any of the existing IV inks and enjoys the same operating characteristics that the rest of the IV family of print heads has to offer.  The IV12 dot print head is driven by the IJHH hand held controller and can be daisy chained with one other print head.
