Contact Us to Get Started

The ci5000 Series printer is the latest evolution of the Citronix printer range. It continues to build on Citronix’s core values of Simple, Capable, Reliable and Excellent Value and reaffirms Citronix’s position as a leading continuous inkjet manufacturer.

Citronix printers are designed to meet some of the most demanding coding and marking applications across industries such as food and beverage, extrusion, cable and wire, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and health care, electronic components, automotive, construction and other industrial sectors.

Citronix’s range of printers apply identifying marks such as best before dates, traceability codes, logos and batch codes at very high speeds to almost any kind of material or surface whether plastic, metal, paper, wood, glass or other substrate types.

One of the greatest enhancements made to the new ciSeries is the large touchscreen display. This touchscreen is built for industrial environments with abuse-resistant tempered glass that protects against scratches, shatters, and solvents. Citronix printers have always been known for the simplicity of the menu system and this is further refined with the new interface.

Another step forward in design is the introduction of ciEasyServ: a quick, easy, no mess/no fuss, tool-free filter service module. It combines all the serviceable fluid filters into one self-enclosed service module and it can be replaced in less than 1 minute. This allows for technician-free filter changes and longer times between scheduled service.




Like previous ciSeries, the ci5000 Series remains a single PCB system, but with more RAM, flash memory and a faster processor - all leading to enhanced performance.

Key new features include a new quick access online HELP database/Standard onboard USB and SD Card ports for fast simple backup/restore functionality. Firmware updates can be accomplished using USB memory sticks or SD cards, as well as over Ethernet.

Quick connects (IP65) for photocells, encoders, and alarm beacons are mounted on the outside of the cabinet.
