Frequently asked questions regarding the Thermal Inkjet

Do you have further questions? Find more information here.

Is the Thermal Inkjet technology right for my application?

Thermal Inkjet technology offers high print resolution on small surfaces. With 600 dpi in the vertical direction, fonts, codes and logos are printed very sharply.

The cartridge is ink tank and printhead in one and has a print height of approx. 12.5 mm. This allows you to add your own touch to your packaging, even on the smallest surfaces.

Print images can be printed monochrome in black, red, green, blue, yellow and orange on absorbent or non-absorbent materials.

Which Thermal Inkjet model is right for my application?

That depends entirely on the desired printing height. You can print approx. 12.5 mm high per cartridge. With a TJ1000, which contains two cartridges, print images with a height of up to 25 mm are possible. Thermal Inkjets can also be combined to achieve print heights > of 25 mm.

What else do I need for printing with my Thermal Inkjet?

In addition to the printer (TJ500 or TJ1000), which is available in a set so you can start printing right away, you will need the ink cartridges we offer. We will be happy to assist you in this matter.

Attachment parts for installation in production lines are available from us in various designs.

Can I see the quality of the Thermal Inkjet for myself?

You can make an appointment at our premises for a live demonstration of our Thermal Inkjet models. We can also advise you on the right printer for you.

Would you like to see the print on your product? No problem! Send us a package to get a non-binding sample print for evaluation. Get in touch with your personal sales representative for this purpose.

What happens after I decide to purchase a Thermal Inkjet from Diagraph?

Installing the Thermal Inkjet is easier than with larger industrial printing solutions.

You can either install your new TJ500 or TJ1000 yourself, or you can make an appointment with a service technician from our company who will then install the device and instruct you on how to operate it.
