Original Press Release

The World's First Hand-Held Portable Ink Jet Printer is Now Available at Riverside Paper Co.

Press release date: December 17, 2012

The innovative HandJet EBS-250 combines the proven success of our EBS-230 production line ink-jet system and adds a unique, wireless interface developed through intensive research. It signals a new era in portable, hand-held ink-jet coding, replacing antiquated hand coders such as stencil machines, stamps and roll coders, which are laborious and expensive in use and problematic with ink management. Weighing in at just less than two pounds - including its on-board rechargeable battery and ink cartridge - the HandJet EBS-250 is the ultimate in lightweight, compact coding and printing. With its patented print technology, the unit improves and economizes ink management to make traditional manual coding methods like stencil marking, hand stamps and roll coders virtually obsolete. By using solvent-based inks in an array of colors, the HandJet EBS-250 provides fast, clean printing on a variety of corrugated materials, in addition to metal, glass and plastic substrates. The unit's high-volume ink-jet cartridge efficiently provides up to 100,000 characters with a dot matrix of 75. The HandJet EBS-250 uses a simple Microsoft(TM) Windows-based program to format and transmit messages that are easily created on a personal computer. Messages can consist of alphanumeric and logos from Windows fonts and symbols, as well as diacritical characters. The data storage is very impressive. This mobile ink jet printer can store up to 10 different messages. Each message can have several lines with hundreds of characters. The EBS-250 can hold 13,000 characters ready for print. You can store additional messages on your computer for quick and easy down load to the hand-held unit. The hand-held system minimizes energy consumption to print for up to 50 continuous hours thanks to its rechargeable Li-ion battery - and recharging takes only two and a half hours. The EBS-250 HandJet Printer was selected as the winner of the Most Innovative Products (MIP) Award program by a panel of industry experts at World of Concrete 2011 in Concrete Production Equipment category. This large character ink-jet printer allows users to make durable markings on concrete, concrete pipe and other construction site surfaces Please go here to see our video: Attached is a brochure with more information on our Hand held inkjet printer.
