TCU Industrial inkjet coder Controller

The HSAjet TCU (Tiny Controller Unit) is a very cost-effective HP based printing solution designed for limited printing jobs still requiring a high-resolution and high quality print.

It is the ideal solution for e.g. stamping of checks, paper documentation, pre-coding, internal logistics, data documentation e.g. integrated in letter openers, or in the pharmaceutical industry.

The HSAjet TCU prints with up to two HP printheads.

Ideal Solution
The HSAjet TCU is the ideal printing solution for small messages, i.e. text printing, barcode printing, counter printing, time and date printing, expiry data printing and logo printing.

It is a very compact solution and calls for a minimum amount of maintenance. Consequently, no special training is required to operate and maintain the HSAjet TCU, and the cartridges are clean and easy to install. In addition, the HSAjet TCU has a design of stainless steel and can easily be implemented in production areas.

Advanced Technology
The HSAjet TCU is based on a standard HP cartridge and makes use of the thermal inkjet technology. Thermal inkjet technology places small ink drops extremely accurately and gives a very high image and text quality.

The ink is available either black or colored, which enhances possible printing applications. The HSAjet TCU also enables printing on almost any surface such as cardboard, paper, wood, and plastic.
