BestCode has made Series 8 systems the benchmark for Continuous Ink Jet Printers. Everything from the Series 8’s industrial exterior to the ease of use OneTouch™ interface, AutoOff™ Go Home Button and high speed performance have been engineered to make Series 8 products, the BEST!
Industrial, Designed to the Extremes
Series 8 systems are designed for industrial extreme applications, engineered to the operating specification edges. Systems operate in wet/dry/dusty and hot/cold applications.
Series 8 Printheads Start Clean Every Time.
Series 8 printheads are industrial stainless steel, Built-to-last for the harshest printing applications. Designed for a clean, pin-pointed start every time.
Automate time consuming
The AutoOff™ Go Home Button automates manual cleaning routines by automatically cleaning the printhead and powering the system off, eliminating daily and weekly cleanings.
Clearer and simpler
BestCode systems user interface is designed to simplify operation. A large, 10.4” color touch display is employed to allow easy visual of all operating information. Operating functions are large, intuitive icon based buttons, making full use of color for status indicators.
External fill fluid addition allows on-the-fly ink and solvent filling without opening enclosure.
The large, clean, mistake proof intelligent one quart fluid containers are sized differently eliminating the risk of adding solvent or ink into wrong tank, while extending time between fluid additions.
• Clean, no mess filling.
• Print everything. Waste nothing! Bottles drain completely so you can print every drop.
• Large containers increase the time between fluid additions, minimizing user interaction.
High volume, demanding print applications are achieved with minimal user intervention. LargeVolume™ tanks hold multiple liters of fluids for extended run time. Ink tank volumes can operate multiple months between additions. Solvent tank volumes can operate 1000+ operational hours between additions.
The systems are “Built-to-Last” in a compact, lightweight space saving design. Durable, precision crafted protection allows operation in the most extreme wet and dry applications. Systems feature an IP55 rated enclosure or an IP65 enclosure to operate in the harshest conditions – including high dust environments.
A combination of electronics, software and mechanical design
dynamically manage the enclosure temperature in extreme cold and hot applications. Using automatic detection systems, variable fan speed and highly efficient air flow, TempSense™ ensures the fluid systems are operating in the correct temperature range. Large, high volume air filters operate 12 months between service intervals.
At the core of every BestCode system is our proprietary common
electronics, operating system platform to control and operate multiple
printing technologies. Systems feature high speed, state-of-the-art 208Mhz
processor core integrated into a single electronic board. The high performance
electronics and software feature a multitasking environment allowing multiple events
and operations to operate simultaneously. Systems feature large memory storage,
external USB connectivity, Ethernet, RS232 and multiple inputs/outputs.
Using high speed processing and CIJ specific electronic hardware, BestCode’s TruPoint™
Technology provides the best CIJ print quality. TruPoint™ dynamically adjusts millions
of drop patterns on-the-fly.

At the core of EcoTec™ are BestCode’s proprietary ink tank, reduced cycle pump and twin trap condensing unit purpose designed for CIJ Technology. The ink tank is designed to last the life of the system, eliminating the need to replace at regular intervals. The reduced cycle pump extends pump life and in combination with TempSense™ lowers fluid operating temperature resulting in lower evaporation rates. The twin trap condensing unit provides two direct drain vapor traps to condense vapors back to usable fluid.
Vapor condensing and reduced solvent evaporation lowers overall ownership cost and reduces interaction time adding solvent to the system.
• Extended pump life.
• Environment friendly. Reduced solvent consumption.
• Lower overall cost of ownership.
• Reduced user interaction.
Intelligent SmartFilter™ knows their install date, keeping track of usage and alerting when the ink filter should be replaced. Quick change, extended life filters operate up to 8,000 hours – 12 months. SmartFilters™ are simple, quick disconnecting allowing operators to change.
• Predictable routine maintenance.
• Quick change.
• Lower overall cost of ownership.
• Extended life filters.
Series 8 printheads are built around BestCode’s proprietary micro-disk drop generator. A single small bore tube delivers ink and solvent eliminating the need for multiple inlets/outlets, providing pin-pointed jet startup.
Printheads feature BestCode’s CleanStart™ technology, an integrated valve provides Direct Solvent Injection for printhead nozzle and gutter cleaning. Jet Startup is ready to print in less than 1 minute.
Industrial, ultra-flexible metal reinforced conduit, connect the printhead to the controller. Printhead components are durable construction, and replaceable for many years of continued operation.
• Ready to print in one minute.
• Printhead heater enables operation in
• Jet stops clean in power loss situations, no battery backup.
• Single step jet-stop/power-off operation.
