The Proven

EBS 1500 stands for reliability, robustness and indestructible technology. In the ink jet segment this printer is known for it’s simple but efficient handling. The printer can get equipped with a bunch of different printheads, optional from 16 nozzles up to 128 nozzles. Expressed in font height this means from 6 mm up to 230 mm.

Multi-printhead setup

With our EBS-1500 you can operate up to 6 printheads with one controller. This is a big advantage for companies with several parallel production lines. It is possible to print a different project with each head.

High contrast

The EBS-1500 even is able to work with pigmented inks. This brings you the maximum contrast for difficult materials.

Robust technology that has already been proven

Our EBS-1500 is probably the most reliable and solid DOD (Drop on Demand) inkjet printer on the market. It combines word processing with graphics, barcodes and data matrix codes in an easy-to-use graphical user interface.

With features such as IP54 protection (optional) and the ability to connect up to 6 print heads to one controller, this coder is the right tool for large production lines and harsh conditions.

Technical data *)

Number of printheads
up to 6

The print-heads depend on each other, i.e. the printing by all print-heads is released by a shared photo-detector and timed by a shared internal generator or an external shaft-encoder.

Working position any

Printhead position during printing any


  • a built-in graphics terminal equipped with an alphanumerical keyboard and LCD graphics display as standard;
  • a multilingual user interface also including the Japanese, Chinese or Korean languages

Distanz vom Druckkopf zum Objekt von 0 bis 30mm


  • PHOTO (photodetector input)
  • SHAFT (shaft encoder input)
  • RS-232

Required inactive time none, the device can run uninterruptedly for 24 hours

Timing (of all print-heads at the same time) 

  • an internal generator, whose frequency is defined with appropriate print parameters,
  • an external sensor of conveyor travel rate, a shaft-encoder, one to be shared by the print-heads or one for either print-head


Type of ink pigmented and non-pigmented, based on methyl-ethyl ketone, acetone or ethanol

Ink color multicolor, provided that ink of one type only is used

Working conditions

Enviroment working temperature from

  • +5 to +40°C (from 41 to +104°F) (as standard)
  • -10 to +40°C (from +14 to +104°F) for special versions
  • relative humidity: up to 90% without condensation

Acceptable exposure to vibration and impacts

  • vibration: max. 1g, max. 10Hz
  • shocks:    max. 1g, max. 2ms

Power supply

  • input rating: AC 87-242V at 45-440Hz, DC 90-350V;
  • power consumption: < 10W for standard version (with no print-head)

Maximum power consumption of printing system is conditioned by:

  •  number and types of print-head connected (number of nozzles)
  •  print rate and intensity,
  •  coverage ratio, i.e. the number of dots printed in proportion to the maximum number of dots resulting from multiplying the print length (a number of rows) by the maximum print height
