The client, an aerosol and liquid filling manufacturer, had several other models of continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers that were consistently unreliable. These CIJ units caused significant downtime resulting in lost production time. Along with the costs of repairs to units that were down, they were also required to pay a monthly service contract fee for an outside service tech to perform preventative maintenance on each unit.
