Trident, the US-based designer and manufacturer of ink jet
printheads, has launched a new printhead capable of producing
four-inch images and designed for carton labelling, bar coding and
graphics imaging.

Trident, the US-based designer and manufacturer of ink jet printheads, launched a new printhead at the WestPack 2003 packaging show in Anaheim, California, last week. The new 768Jet printhead, capable of producing four-inch images, is designed for carton labelling, bar coding and graphics imaging.

"The 768Jet will have an important impact on the secondary packaging industry,"​ said Steve Liker, Trident's director of marketing. "The ability to print four-inch graphics has great potential for increasing the branding power of secondary packaging. This is especially true in wholesale retail store environments where products are often displayed in the corrugated boxes they were delivered in."

According to Trident, the 768Jet printhead is the tallest in the direct-to-carton ink jet market and its stainless steel printing orifice and durable design allow the printhead to consistently print accurate, verifiable barcodes and quality graphics in the most rugged of industrial environments.

"We have such high confidence in the durability of our printheads that we are offering a three-year warranty on all of our 768Jet printheads,"​ explained Liker.

The printhead also features an Automatic Maintenance Module system that routinely cleans the printhead. This feature was designed to eliminate the need for priming, wiping and cleaning with the aim of significantly reducing ownership costs and maintaining high print quality.

"The Trident 768Jet printhead combines robust industrial design with high quality print performance,"​ concluded Liker. "It delivers hassle-free, reliable and high quality carton printing."
