Printer nozzles are easily cleaned, swapped over
An innovative nozzle features field-replaceable components that can easily
be cleaned or swapped out by in-house operators, so there is no need to replace
the entire nozzle assemblyInkJet, the leading supplier of low cost, high quality inks and
replacement parts to the coding and marking industry, offers its new EZ JET
nozzle for use on all Videojet EXCEL series coding and marking systems at
Interpack Hall 12/Stand B04-6.
The innovative EZ JET nozzle
features field-replaceable components that can easily be cleaned or swapped out
by in-house operators, eliminating the need to replace the entire nozzle
A simple and cost-effective alternative to expensive OEM nozzles,
the EZ JET nozzle from InkJet (IJI) reduces operating costs and enhances printer
‘With the EZ JET nozzle, we can take it apart, we can change the
orifice and we can change the filter.
We can flush it out or replace only the
components that are faulty rather than having to buy the entire nozzle,’
explained one satisfied customer.
‘We’ve reduced operating costs and we’ve
reduced inventory carrying costs.’ With traditional closed-unit OEM nozzles,
dirt that gets past the filter into the orifice causes the print quality to
suffer or printing to stop altogether.
Since you can not get the nozzle
apart, there is no way to clean it out.
With EZ JET, a customer buys the
nozzle and never needs to buy another.
As parts wear or problems arise, the
customer can clean or replace components at a minimal cost, basically building a
new nozzle instead of buying the entire closed unit at significantly higher
‘We were initially interested in the EZ JET nozzle in an effort to
lower costs but the real measure of success is print quality and uptime.
have found the quality is there and the unit is never down.’ This IJI customer
operates in a challenging production environment with temperatures reaching 100

units per hour.
Adding to the challenge, the ink jet print head is placed
below the line and directed up where the nozzle is susceptible to
The customer concluded: ‘If the EZ JET nozzle will perform here for
us, it will perform anywhere.’ IJI designed the EZ JET nozzle specifically so
in-house operators could easily replace critical nozzle components themselves to
keep the coding and marking equipment functioning at peak performance while
And eliminating reliance on specialized technicians for
nozzle service helps customers keep production lines up and running to maximize
To further reduce operating costs, IJI designed the EZ JET
nozzle to accept all orifice sizes used with Videojet EXCEL series printers from
36 micron to 120 micron.
Customers using different orifice sizes, either
changing over one line or operating multiple lines, can now stock a variety
inexpensive orifice assemblies rather than several complete OEM nozzle
This versatility helps customers minimize inventory-carrying
IJI backs the EZ JET nozzle and its field-replaceable components with
a full one-year warranty.
The company also supplies a complete line of
aftermarket inkjet fluids, OEM replacement parts and offers experienced service
technicians for maintenance and repair of coding and marking equipment.
