Kao Collins, a manufacturer and supplier of industrial inkjet inks, has launched the Nexxo line of inkjet inks for the new solvent-compatible Funai thermal inkjet ink cartridge after extensive testing in production environments.
According to the company, the inks offer greater opportunities for printing on new and challenging substrates with thermal inkjet technology and the cartridges maintain integrity when using strong solvent formulation.
‘These amazing Funai cartridges opened the door for our Nexxo line of solvent inks. Now printers using CIJ systems have a TIJ alternative that requires little ongoing service, reduces VOC emissions, and prints higher-quality expiration information,’ said John Herman, the TIJ business manager.
The Nexxo inks print high-resolution 2d coding and increase the readability of expiration dates and lot numbers using solid alphanumeric instead of dot-matrix.
The inks also support the increased throw distance of the cartridge. At 10mm, the Funai TIJ systems now offer an alternative to other printing systems for marking and coding on curved or recessed surfaces. Compared to CIJ systems for printing non-porous materials, the ink-cartridge combination reduces VOC emissions by almost 90 percent.
‘There is virtually no downtime when using Nexxoink in Funai cartridges,’ said Kao Collins in a statement. ‘Funai TIJ technology offers greater efficiency, with less downtime, maintenance, and almost no cleaning.’
