Why choose the Hitachi UX-D160W?

The Hitachi UX-D160W is a robust, high-performance CIJ printer that incorporates a wide range of options, design features and enhancements to deliver economical, environmentally-friendly and reliable printing performance for commercial applications.

Capable of printing barcodes, data matrices, QR codes and more, the UX-D160W is ideal for challenging applications, such as printing on drinks containers like milk and juice cartons, thanks to its ergonomically-designed printhead. It is also suitable for printing both large characters and micro-fonts depending on the nozzle size.

Here are some of the main reasons to choose the Hitachi UX-D160W:

  • High-performance printing
    • The Hitachi UX-D160W printer offers six separate printing lines, for prints of up to 240 characters, at a print rate of 1,148 characters per second
  • Easy-to-use interface
    • The unit comes with a full-colour 10.4" TFT LCD touchscreen and simple WYSIWYG interface, offering the ability to preview the finished image on the screen before going ahead with printing to prevent errors, and an icon-based graphic display to indicate when ink levels are low
  • Economical easy-drain cartridge system
    • The printer’s ink and makeup cartridges can be easily changed without stopping production, and are optimised for the complete evacuation of fluids, allowing them to be used right down to the last drop. Empty cartridges are then sealed after removal to prevent any hazardous solvents from escaping
  • Robust performance in challenging environments
    • The UX-D160W’s stainless steel cabinet offers IP65-standard protection, providing total protection from dust ingress and protection against low-pressure water jets from any direction. It may also be used in temperatures ranging from 0° to 50°C, making the system suitable for a variety of production environments
  • Low total cost of operation and ownership
    • Each component of the ergonomic printhead can be replaced individually, reducing the need to purchase costly sub-assemblies, while maintenance items are also replaceable individually. This, combined with the economical ink consumption, delivers significant savings for users
