PicAS II EBS-1600

Practical and compact

The latest generation of EBS large character printers impresses with its compact and practical design.  The PicAS II EBS-1600 is installed and ready to print in less than 10 minutes. It is operated and controlled via a full colour 10.1″ TFT display with touch function. Different authorizations can be figured individually in each user profile.

Thanks to new, very compact design and the new E-Link technology, there are no annoying ink lines and no external compressed air supply. Visible cables are reduced to a minimum.

What is your requirement?

6-58mm print height, narrow nozzle spacing for a precise print image or larger nozzle spacing for more print height? The preferred printer configuration can be selected from 5 different printheads.

Robust right from the start

Even in its absolutely basic configuration, the PicAS II EBS-1600 has been developed for use in adverse production environments. The operating terminal is rated IP54 protection class and the printhead is even rated IP55.

Clean hand handling

Consumables can be changed quickly and cleanly to the new Quick-Shift cartridge system. No refilling, no drips, no tools.
