UISS | Uninterrupted Ink Supply System
UISS allows ink replacement without the need to stop the print run, by automatically switching to the other ink cartridge/bottle when the first one runs out; after the switch, the operator can replace the empty one. This allows for longer unattended print runs and reduces unsuspected print holds due to insufficient ink. Only available for ink configurations that have two cartridges/bottles of the same colour.
The advantage of UISS explained
UISS lengthens the maximum print run, thanks to a larger ink capacity and prevents the operator from having to replace ‘not-yet-empty’ cartridges/bottles so that the (unattended) job can be finished.
UISS not applied
The print job needs to be interrupted each time one of the ink cartridge/bottle runs out, reducing the overall productivity.
