The ink-jet printer EBS-230 of the “PicAS”-series sets new standards in regard to configuration and cost-effectiveness of basic DOD (Drop on Demand) systems, which remain relevant to newest DOD systems. With a print height of 6mm up to 27mm (depends on selected version) and a print speed up to 60m/min the EBS-230 is the perfect marking system for small to medium production volumes.

Fast drying inks

The ability to use fast-drying inks on Ethanol-, Acetone- or MEK base provides a universal solution for various marking applications. No matter if the surface is made of cardboard, plastics, metal, glass or ceramics.

Degree of protection IP54 as standard

Trough a process of consistent development of the established line coder “PicAS” EBS-200 we created a totally splash water protected system which is also independent from external compressed air.

IP54 water- and dustproof from power supply to touchscreen

Modular design for bottom-up printing

Graphic editor via touch screen

Savings of more than 60% ink compared to other printers due to special ruby nozzles
