The EBS-260’s print height has been doubled to 32 dots with print heights up to 2.2″ and will provide one to four separate lines of code. We’ve increased the capacity of the ink cartridge to up to 200,000 characters in a 7×5 matrix. Single- or multi-line messages from .276″ to 2.2″ high can be printed on both porous and non-porous substrates. It’s ideal for imprinting corrugated, paper, film, foil, glass, metal, lumber, concrete, and many other surfaces.
New on-board, color touch-screen controller simplifies on-the-fly adjustments. The over 3.5″-diagonal, hardened screen enables the user to view the message being printed and various operational parameters. The large, highly-readable screen makes it easy to adjust print parameters at the touch of a finger, ensuring optimum printing results without interrupting work flow.
Built-in laser guidance is included for the precise positioning of messages. The HandJet® EBS-260’s integrated guidance laser simplifies the handling of the unit by providing the operator with an easy-to-follow laser target for the exact positioning of the imprinted message. In addition, EBS offers optional stabilizer guide brackets for printing on cylindrical surfaces or to assist with perfectly straight lines.
The slightly-over 3.5-lb. unit features a redesigned hand grip improved ergonomic grip contours to ensure that handling is comfortable and well- balanced.
The HandJet® EBS-260 uses a variety of quick-drying and application-specific inks: ethanol-, acetone- or MEK-based in different colors, and more.
For near-effortless clean up and periodic maintenance, a handy cleaning cartridge can be installed in just seconds to ease the removal of ink and flush the system.
Communicating with the HandJet® EBS-260 is simple and versatile: choose from WiFi, Bluetooth or USB.
