Hitachi UX2 – the high-end model
The new Hitachi UX2 continuous inkjet printer just keeps going and going. A host of new features have been incorporated to keep downtimes to a minimum.
The improved print head stops dirt from getting in where it shouldn’t, while a guard electrode ensures that you can carry on printing constantly – with top-quality results.
The model also includes a safe-clean station to keep your CIJ permanently available, even after breaks, shift changes, weekends or extended periods of downtime.
Speed and quality for Industry 4.0
Thanks to its improved printing algorithm, the Hitachi UX2 creates labels with even clearer text than before – and the same outstanding quality you’ve come to expect.
The new high-speed print head accommodates 1 and 2-line applications with exceptional quality and speeds of up to 330 m/min.
With a whole host of interfaces and communication protocols the UX2 is fit for Industry 4. (Ethernet, RS232 / Modbus, Ethernet/IP, OPC/UA).
Not only that, but it is also fully compatible with NiceLabel – so you can integrate your new UX2 into your networked production line.
The new user interface from Hitachi helps you save time spent on training your employees.
The integrated videos explain specific functions so you’ll pick them up in no time at all.

Continuous inkjet printing is designed to produce high volume, high speed product marking with minimal ink consumption.
