Products for the Ioline FlexJet family of wide format monochrome inkjet printers.


In their own words

Manufacturers discuss the benefits of the FlexJet’s open-architecture, speed, low operating and ink costs, and Ioline’s superior service when compared to their personal experiences with other brands.

We are loving our Ioline still and I would love to share our experience.

Los Angeles, CA   

Fast, quick service, inexpensive to maintain, less than half the ink cost of my Microjet®, easy access to change ink cartridges.

Montréal, Québec   

The FlexJet E™ is the best imported marker inkjet.

Guangzhou, China   

I switched from Algotex® to Ioline and was amazed at the difference. No more having to order special ink or wait for parts or service.

Los Angeles, Calif.   

Plotted over a million yards on the FlexJet requiring zero service expense. Print quality, speed and operating cost better than Gerber. Gerber maintenance cost $225 per month and the paper advance is slow.

Dallas, Texas   

I have always loved my Ioline plotters, they are great machines and have given us next to no trouble. I am one of the biggest PAD users in NZ so my big plotter goes constantly non stop every day.

Morrinsville, New Zealand   

The FlexJet E™ technology opened a new frontier to the inkjet industry. It is the most reliable and simple inkjet machine I have seen. The running costs are the lowest in the inkjet technology and accessible to any company. The availability of the ink—HP® cartridges—is all over the world.

Mexico D.F., Mexico   

I was extremely disappointed with my first inkjet brand purchase. The Ioline FlexJet E™ is like night and day. There’s no comparison. The return on investment is tremendous.

Medellin, Colombia   

No other plotter offers this combination of features, speed, reliability and operating costs.

Dallas, Texas   

I replaced my Gerber® plotter with an Ioline FlexJet E™ 2-head. Now, I have no more overnight plotting. Plotting has never been easier.

Los Angeles, Calif.   

I’d like to do my congratulations to your company for the packaging and the absolute precision of the documentation and the parts located inside.

Dalmine, Italy   

I’ve worked on Gerber® units for 15 years and have never seen a plotter more reliable or easier to use than the Ioline FlexJet E™.

Los Angeles, Calif.   

We are having minimal, to no problems, with the Ioline plotters. Ink usage is less than our expenditure with the Algotex plotters. Speed is very good. We are very satisfied with our purchase. No other plotter compares to Ioline.

Uvalde, TX
