VIDEOJET 1560 Continuous Ink Jet Date Coder ( $4,500 )
I have this unit that I will sell as is, with a cart, status light, and set up to trigger off of a photo-eye, and/or can even deliver it and set it up for you. Price dependent of course.
If you tell me how you intend to use it I can get you very close to plug and play by doing the necessary settings adjustments and getting it close for you.
If you have experience with these units and want to handle it yourself that is the most efficient option financially.
If you wish, the photo eye I have to provide is new in box.
In the event that there are any issues with this unit, I will honor a 90 day warranty, and will repair this unit on site with you only paying for the parts (which I can obtain much cheaper than Videojet list price) for up to one year. After that year, I will still provide the same services but may charge travel costs should you be located far away.
