We've all seen those numeric and alphabetic codes applied in the products we purchase on a daily basis. In addition to barcodes, these include a complex alphanumeric code that we hardly understand.



Currently, every manufacturer or producer is obliged to properly label his products before they're placed in the market. These procedures are a strong assistance in the reading of the data of the products route and, ultimately, lead to a bigger understanding of the final consumer and his consuming habits.

Therefore, a practical and functional labelling process, is essential for the right identification of the products, whether it is for the right identification of their course and transportation, or for the due commercialization and respective taxation.

The German manufacturer of ink-jet printers EBS, has the right solution for all these purposes. No matter what product it is, EBS offers a wide range of printers and inks suitable for all kinds of surfaces.

The Handjet EBS-260 is a non-contact printer able to print any kinds of text, graphic images, barcodes or registration, from dating, numbering or coding and it even prints data transferred from computers or external devices such as automatic sales, barcode readers and control equipment.

By using the latest non-contact printing technology, firm print marking can be produced over almost all kinds of material and surfaces – even on coarse or porous surfaces and those containing depressions or protrusions. The print heads comprise between 1 and 352 nozzles and their output varies from 1,5mm to 115mm using between 5 and 64 independent dots.

This product is portable, handheld, ultra-compact and light ink-jet printer equipped with an electromagnetic valve-based print head, a battery and wireless control. It weighs only 1580 grams and it was developed for those who need to use at any place, any condition and at any time.

EBS Elektronische Beschriftungs-Systeme GmbH was founded in Cologne, Germany, in 1984 by Jan Slomianny and emerged out of the company Büro and Datentechnik (BDT, founded 1977).

In 1980, Jan Slomianny pioneered the development of the flexible "Drop-on-Demand Ink-Jet" (DOD) BDT 2000 and BDT 2016, suitable for practically every application. Characteristic for this type of printer and absolutely unique at that time, was the ability to adjust the print height by slanting the print head. Since then this technique has been widely used by countless companies throughout the world. The innovative design of special print heads for "quick-drying" inks, also allowed for printing on non-porous surfaces (e.g. plastic, metal, glass, rubber).

In 1983, Jan Slomianny founded Intron Elektronik in Wroclaw, Poland.

An increase in the product range forced the company to search for more office, production and of course, warehousing space. In 2000, EBS invested in a new 21000 m² site in Nümbrecht, Elsenroth, which lies in the middle of western Europe, about 50 km east of Cologne. There, the new 3500 m² ultra-modern facility with its production and service center, was inaugurated in September 2001 to the benefit of the company's worldwide distributors and customers.

Today, the company has more than 120 employees in the two factories (Germany and Poland) and is recognized worldwide as the leading manufacturer of ink-jet printers for industrial use.

Surely, you'll never again lose sight of your products, wherever they are.
