FN Series

With unmatched speed, a longer throw distance, and the ability to print on almost any substrate, the FN Series pushes the limits of what is possible with thermal inkjet. The FN series is based on 0.5″ cartridge technology from Funai (formerly Lexmark). It offers all the advantages of cartridge-based printers — economical, low-maintenance, compact, and simple to change between ink types or colors. With the FN Series, you get high performance and 600 dpi print quality at a very attractive price. XiJet offers aqueous inks for porous stocks and solvent inks for coated and non-porous stocks. You can even print on plastics and metals.

With thousands of installations across dozens of applications, you can be assured that the FN Series is reliable and has all the features you need.
