EVOLUTION I LX Ink Jet Printers
Similar in configuration, features, and cost to Digital Design’s EVOLUTION 1, the EVOLUTION I LX system uses Lexmark ink jet technology for lower overall ink costs. Capable of handling production speeds up to 240 feet per minute, it produces bold, very legible characters in 300 or 600 dpi resolutions.

Resetting the printhead is easy: just snap it back in place. Additional printheads can be added quickly, using a dovetail mounting system built into each printhead. Each printer comes complete with all mounting brackets, a handheld controller and everything needed for installation and operation.
