Continuous InkJet Printer
Versatile and cost-effective inkjet coding and marking solution suitable for nearly every application. Using world-class technology, the GIR is built keeping the working conditions in Indian factories in mind.
Ease of use
Designed to be easy to use for operators of all skill levels. New operators can start using the inkjet coding printer in a matter of hours -instead of weeks.
IP 65 rated
Rugged construction of the inkjet batch coding machine runs reliably even in the harshest conditions.
Packed with innovative features that minimize maintenance requirements and downtime.
Local language printing
Increase sales, minimize warranty claims and future-proof against regulatory changes by printing in the language your market is the most comfortable with.
Lowest cost of ownership
With the most competitive consumables pricing and all-inclusive maintenance contracts, cost of ownership remains under control and within budget.
Ease of Use
Operators learn in hours, not weeks
The GIR shines in situations where operators change frequently and may not have the necessary technical skills to operate complicated equipment. It includes many groundbreaking usability features that enable new operators, including semi-skilled and unskilled operators, to start using the machine in a matter of hours, instead of days and weeks.
Large, Solvent-Resistant Touchscreen With Icon-Based User Interface
The GIR features a large, solvent-resistant touchscreen and an icon-based user interface. Anyone who has used a smartphone will be immediately familiar with GIR.
Interface Available In Major Indian Languages
India is a land of many tongues. Asking workers in various parts of the country to operate the printer in a common language is simply not feasible. We designed the GIR keeping India’s lingual diversity in mind.
The GIR interface is available in all the major regional languages of India. This allows the operator to truly understand the machine instead of simply memorizing a sequence of buttons. It significantly cuts down on operator errors.
IP 65 rated, rugged construction
Runs reliably even in harsh conditions and able to meet even the strictest of hygiene standards
Heat, dust and humidity take their toll on delicate equipment. The GIR is engineered to thrive in even the harshest conditions.
This industrial grade construction also makes GIR suitable for food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries with strict hygiene standards requiring CIP (Clean in Process) and SIP (Steam in Process) compliant line equipment.
To boldly go through water and dust...
Positive air pressure prevents outside air and dust particles from contaminating the ink stream and clogging the printer.
GIR’s waterproof construction allows it to be hosed during regular line wash down.
with add on...
Machines delivered to hot or cold environments are equipped with protections to enable reliable running.
When flame-proofing is required the machine is housed in protective casing that’s pressurized to prevent outside air and flammable chemicals from entering.
Aseptic stainless steel surface
Aseptic stainless steel surfaces remain germ-free and meet even the strictest hygiene standards.
Minimal maintenance and downtime
Packed with innovative features that reduce maintenance requirements and minimize downtime
Machines require regular maintenance to work reliably. With the pressure of many lines and long production hours, proper maintenance procedures are not always followed, which can lead to unnecessary line downtime.
Reduced maintenance and line downtime equate to 3 extra shifts a year
Nozzle Shutter Prevents Ink Drying
When the printer is not in use, ink dries on the print head. This then has to be cleaned during startup. Control Print has developed an innovative nozzle shutter that perfectly seals the nozzle during shutdown and prevents ink drying. Thus you are assured of smooth printer startup and shutdown with minimal printhead cleaning required.
Innovative printhead construction for rapid cleaning
When the print head eventually needs to be cleaned, a flap on the GIR makes it as easy as possible. In other continuous inkjet printers, this is a time-consuming process requiring your operators to detach and disassemble the print head before it can be cleaned. In the GIR CIJ the process is as simple as opening the flap, spraying solvent and wiping the print head clean: no time-consuming and error-prone reassembly required.
Print quality often suffers if the reassembly and alignment is not done properly, or done by operators without sufficient technical skills, wasting even more time.
Step 1: Open the flap
Step 2: Apply solvent
Step 3: Clean with soft cloth
Step 4: Close the flap and resume printing
Printhead cleaning takes 30 seconds and does not require disassembly
In-built battery ensures proper shutdown in power outageIf the power is cut when the machine is in operation, ink starts depressurizing and clogs the printhead, requiring cleanup during the next startup. In-built battery ensures the printer goes through proper shutdown procedure and smooth startup the next time.
Quickly troubleshoot and fix print quality issues with stroboscopic magnifying glassAn integrated stroboscopic magnifying glass monitors allows operators to quickly check drop formation and troubleshoot print quality issues even when the printer is running.
Automated error diagnostics
In the case of a printer problem, automated error diagnostics displays an error code that pinpoints the exact problem. Reference this code and our engineers can fix most problems over the phone.
Automated nozzle cleaner
Automated nozzle cleaner clears minor impurities and prevents the printhead from clogging. Together with the automated nozzle shutter, this significantly reduces the need for operators to clean the printhead.
Automated stirring mechanism
When the printer is not running, the inks settle down and clog the ink container. Automated stirring mechanism stirs the ink every few hours and prevents the ink from drying when the machine is not in use. This ensures the printer is ready to go at the next startup.
Local Language Printing
Increase sales, reduce warranty claims and future-proof against regulatory changes
With more than a billion Indians and South Asians but less than a million with English as their first language (and even today less than 10% who can read English versus 75% who are literate), English is clearly not the sole language of choice to reach the widest possible target audience. The GIR allows you to code in the language of your choice. Whether you need a local or international language, you will have plenty of options.
