A TIJ Cartridge in a Class by Itself

A revolutionary Funai thermal inkjet cartridge, combined with Kao Collins’ Nexxo heavy solvent ink, now makes marking and coding on curved surfaces possible. This new offering produces high-resolution expiration dates and lot codes on food and pharmaceutical packaging. Say goodbye to dot matrix CIJ printing.

Using our Nexxo ink in Funai TIJ cartridges outperforms continuous inkjet systems for line speed and quality. The characters and numbers print solid, so you can be confident of the readability and scanability.

Printing on Non-porous Food and Pharmaceutical Packaging

  • Cans
  • Glass bottles
  • Plastic bottles and jugs
  • Foils
  • Blister packaging

Funai TIJ Advantages Over CIJ

  • Higher resolution coding
  • Faster line speed*
  • Virtually no downtime

Nexxo and Funai Cartridges outperform other TIJ systems

Kao Collins’ aggressive solvent inks, such as MEK, ketones, alcohols and acetates don’t degrade the new thermal inkjet ink cartridges from Funai. This expands the types of substrates that can be printed using Nexxo and Funai TIJ.

Other performance advantages

  • 2x the through distance
  • Larger drop size
  • ½” print swath for 2D barcodes at speed
  • ½” print swath for multiple lines of text at speed
  • More ink capacity
  • More nozzles
  • Greater ink efficiency

The solvent-compatible Funai cartridges maintain integrity after 48 hours in an MEK bath.

Nexxo Solvent Ink Performance

  • 12mm throw distance
  • Prints curved surfaces with 12mm throw distance
  • Overall decap improvement
  • More than 24-hour decap on select inks
  • 12-month shelf life
  • No heat drying
  • Prints on more non-porous substrates
