The 1310 ink-jet printer is designed to start and stop without the need for cleaning. Its automated backflushing nozzle minimizes downtime by automatically cleaning itself at startup and shutdown, including after idle periods. It's capable of printing seven types of bar codes, alphanumerics, expiration dates and serializers for consumer packaged goods, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and contract-packaging applications. The printer's equipped with a simple user interface and a text-editor software package, and a dual CompactFlash™ memory card eases setup, backup, cloning and upgrading. Other features include a heated printhead, a built-in pump and electric printhead shutoff valves.
