Hitachi UX-D160W Flexible Printer

The Hitachi UX-D160W Flexible Printer is capable of printing barcodes, Data Matrix and QR codes and comes with a full colour 10.4" TFT LCD touchscreen and simple WYSIWYG interface. Through its "Clean & Easy Cartridge System" and its "Make Up Fluid Consumption Reducing System" maintainability and environmental performance improve dramatically.

The environmentally improved UX series printers reduces fluid consumption, is easy to use and its ergonomically-designed printhead is ideal for printing on drinks containers like milk & juice cartons. The UX is available in three models – entry level, flexible and premium and features a new cartridge-type system, which makes ink replacement clean and simple. The ink and make-up cartridge bottles can be used right up until the last drop which prevents wastage and eliminates the need to dispose of them separately.

A modern user interface with full colour, 10.4 inch touch screen panel with the ability to check the finished image on the screen before going ahead with printing helps to avoid errors and saves on wastage. An icon-based graphics indicates when ink levels are low and when is the correct time to replace cartridges.
