Precision and Speed with alphaJET Continuous Inkjets
alphaJET inkjets are used worldwide in wire and cable marking applications. Pigmented and UV curable inks provide high contrast marks that don’t transfer on contact. The icon-based menu, drag and drop editor and large touchscreen offer ‘smartphone-style’ simplicity.
alphaJET inkjets include most of the features you need as standard – including distance measurement. Additional software is available for feet to meter (and vice versa) conversion, cutting signal and text distribution for meter marking.

I have been dealing with PrintSafe for three years. I cannot fault their service. I wanted to set the printers up in an unconventional manner and the continued determination by the installation team to get my desired outcome was superb.
The printer is running well, over 3 million prints without a fault. We are printing on white silicone cable and getting very good adhesion results at 400m per minute.
