The Anser X1 thermal inkjet printer represents the next generation of thermal inkjet (TIJ) technology. Fast enough to rival continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers, yet configurable and small enough to fit in any production environment, the Anser X1 is one of the most powerful and versatile TIJ models on the market today.

Features & Specifications

The Anser X1 offers coding possibilities that other thermal inkjet printers can’t match. Compatible with both porous and non-porous substrates, the Anser X1 is built to meet the coding needs of companies across the manufacturing and packaging spectrum. The unique and innovative design creates a versatile printer that can grow and change with you as your production needs change. The Anser X1 can control two independent printheads, utilizing two different inks while being controlled by a single controller.

Other benefits of the Anser X1 include:

  • The ability to simultaneously control two production lines.
  • A 1-inch print height with a single printhead and a 2-inch print height with dual printheads.
  • Multiple printhead configurations to match your production needs.
  • A 7-inch color LCD touchscreen with complete protection against water and physical damage.
  • Pause-free cartridge replacement to prevent downtime while using “Parallel Setup.”
  • Scan to Print feature.

Offering the marking speed of a CIJ system, the print height of a high-resolution case coder, and the high-resolution capabilities of an industry-leading TIJ printer, the Anser X1 is ideal for a wide range of marking tasks.

The Anser X1’s 300 m/min max speed makes the model a perfect fit for primary packaging lines, such as those in bottling and canning facilities. Further, the X1’s unique dual production line support provides users with the ability to instantly scale up production. One controller can control two different print stations with two different messages using two different inks, and one controller with two heads can replace two systems, either in primary or case coding. The Anser X1 is also optimal for secondary packaging applications, as the X1’s 2-inch print height and 600 x 600 DPI capabilities are ideal for case coding.

Popular uses for the Anser X1 include marking:
