ID Technology has been a partner of FoxJet for many years and the ProSeries products, based on Trident print technology, are well proven to produce excellent print quality and to be incredibly durable. Trident based printers are proven to have the lowest cost of ownership of high-resolution inkjet printing systems.

Two versions of the ProSeries printheads are available, the 2-inch wide 384 and 4-inch wide 768. Using a pair of 768 printheads allows a print height of 8 inches, providing the ability to print the complete side of many shipping cases.

Here’s a short video showing a 2-inch 384 printhead printing onto corrugated cases:

Three models of controller are available for the Pro Series:

Elite – FoxJet’s top level controller, an Industrial PC with 17-inch touchscreen interface. Elite can handle up to four printheads that can be on two separate production lines.

Matrix – a less expense, but still full-featured controller that can also handle four printheads and two production lines. Matrix has a 10-inch touchscreen and simplified layout, making it easy to learn and use.

Duo XT – has a color display and full QWERTY keyboard for designing formats and operating the system. Duo XT can control up to four 384 printheads or two 768 printers.
