Sojet Elfin 1DC

High-resolution TIJ printer for direct product coding

Elfin-1DC is unique with its curved deflection plate paired with a spring mechanism to easily guide across most uneven surfaces at close range and print directly onto your product. Weather a “clamshell” or a glass bottle, the curvature allows the printhead to stretch around the uneven surface.
