herbthäuser logo

With our old printer, we kept getting misprints with missing characters or smudged imprints.

Since we have been using the Hitachi printer, the imprints of the best-before date and lot number are always excellent.

Hitachi CIJ print examples

The Hitachi Continuous Inkjet is very popular in the industry - and with good reason. You can see some examples here:

Frequently asked questions regarding the Hitachi UX series

Do you have further questions? Find more information here.

Is the Continuous Inkjet technology right for my application?

Continuous Inkjet printing is geared toward product labeling in high volume and at high speed with minimum ink consumption.

The CIJ print appears "dotted" as individual drops are printed next to each other at visible distances for efficient labeling. CIJ printing is mainly about content.

If efficiency is your main concern with the final printed image, CIJ printing and therefore Hitachi devices are the right choice for you.

If you prefer larger> (20 mm print height) prints with appealing fonts and logos on your products, feel free to take a look at our other products to find the right technology for your application.

Which expansion stage of the RX2 is the right one for my application?

A Hitachi RX2 is available in the following expansion stages:

RX2 SL0: The "Solution Level 0" variant has no upgrade key and offers the basic functions of the RX2.

RX2 SL1: The "Solution Level 1" variant has one upgrade key and offers the expanded functions of the RX2.

RX2 SL2: The "Solution Level 2" variant has two upgrade keys and offers the full functionality of the RX2.

The functional scopes are listed in the table below.

Expansion with separately available upgrade keys is possible at any time - e.g.: Upgrade of a RX2 SL0 to SL1 (reorder: 1 upgrade key) or SL2 (reorder: 2 upgrade keys) or of a RX2 SL1 to SL2 (reorder: 1 upgrade key).

What else do I need for printing with my Hitachi RX2?

Ink and solvents

The Hitachi RX2 requires ink and solvents, which can be easily filled into the open containers of the device.

We will be happy to assist you in the selection of inks and solvents. Contact us to clarify the details of your printing application.

Equipment and accessories

In order to be able to install the printhead on your production line according to your requirements, we offer suitable attachments which are fitted during installation and start-up of the printer. We will be happy to advise you in this matter.

Are there any other variants of the Hitachi RX2?

Yes. An RX2 printer can be ordered in two other variants.

Variant 1: 4 m hose (Hitachi standard) with 90° angled compact printhead for special installation situations.

Variant 2: 6 m hose with straight printhead (Hitachi standard) for particularly long distances between device and product.

I am already using CIJ devices from other manufacturers - why should I switch to a Hitachi RX2?

Hitachi Continuous Inkjet printers have a long history in the industry. The Hitachi RX2 series offers flexible functions for efficient product labeling based on over 40 years of industry experience.

With the Hitachi RX2 series, you not only benefit from modern industry standards, but also from the advantages of excellent Japanese engineering, which is characterized by absolute durability, easy maintenance and precision.
