Industrial Continuous Inkjet Printers / CIJ Printers
This continuous inkjet printer (IJP) minimizes the hassle of maintenance. Anyone can easily operate this printer regardless of technical knowledge or skill level, since troubleshooting and real-time quality checks are automatically performed with KEYENCE’s proprietary sensor technology.
MK-G Series is the world's first self-troubleshooting continuous inkjet printer that completely eliminates the guesswork of inkjet maintenance and can be operated without any specialised product knowledge or skills. By incorporating KEYENCE sensor technologies to enhance self-diagnostic capabilities, the new MK-G Series can automatically perform maintenance and troubleshooting on its own – just like how a trained inkjet technician would. The unit features new functions that ensure automatic cleaning is performed every time before shutdown even when the power is disrupted, and allow users to check the status and perform operations on the printer remotely from a PC or Smartphone.
Hands-free Cleaning [Auto-shower Cleaning]
The auto-shower cleaning function of the MK-G Series cleans not only the ink path but also all components necessary for maintaining print quality. Suction during cleaning also helps to reduce odors. After cleaning is complete, the built-in blower automatically dries the head.
Conventional head cleaning
Manual cleaning was required to wash residual ink off the inside of the head.
In addition to cleaning the ink paths, the key parts of the head are also subject to high-pressure cleaning. This negates the need for manual cleaning.
Self-diagnosis Followed by Automatic Cleaning When Necessary
To start the MK-G Series, simply press the Smart Startup button. The printer will automatically obtain the device status and select the necessary cleaning method. Cleaning is performed only when required and the minimum amount of solvent is used, significantly reducing running costs.
MK-G enables self-diagnosis and cleaning to ensure stable startup.
