  • 1978
    The Foundation of Zanasi in Sassuolo, Modena
    It was September 1978, when the Zanasi brothers began to build mechanical technology systems for the local ceramic industry.
  • 1984 First CIJ system with DOD technology
    In 1984, Zanasi started to design and produce Ink-Jet industrial systems in Italy. In 1984 Zanasi launched the  “Made in Italy” Ink-Jet system with DOD technology, suitable for large character and corrugated packaging marking.
  • 1989
    Production of the first small character system with CIJ system
    After a few years of enhancing the design, Zanasi produced and commercialized the first small character system with CIJ technology to code at high speed on primary packaging. It is the only totally “Made in Italy” system.
  • 1990
    The DOD revolution began: new printheads with solenoid technology. 
    By this time, the Zanasi systems incorporated elements of advanced electronics, precision micro-hydraulics and micro-mechanics, that led to the revolutionary DOD printhead with solenoid technology.
  • 1996 First High-Definition system for industrial applications. The main investments were aimed at the Research & Development department with the goal of providing innovative and quality solutions. The multiple demands of the market gave clues to begin the production of systems with High-Definition technology, suitable for any industrial environment.
  • 1999
    Launch of JET303, reference point for the DOD systems
    The Zanasi large character system had now entered the everyday market and was recognized as the conventional solution for marking. Design refinement, reliability and consistency of performances, warranty and original parts availability were guaranteed worldwide. A system able to meet the logistical and marking needs of customers in any production facility.
  • 2003
    Birth of the first system for graphics printing: 102mm tall!
    An innovative printhead and an ink specifically formulated for direct printing of images and codes on secondary packaging. All in one solution: print, image, traceability and cost savings.
  • 2004 The new generation of CIJ coders was released.
  • 2008
    The innovative Z640 System: Ethernet, USB ports, 12" touch screen.
    This is the encoding solution that changed the way we work, simplifying the operation, making it easier to use, reducing the size and cost of printing.
  • 2009
    The integration era began!
    Zanasi met the needs of the market economy, with ever faster processing times: having an integrated system and a single source of reference.
    Z5000ITS: CIJ system with Integrated Traversing Systvem
    Unique marker with integrated single and dual axis traversing system that allows the printhead to move in perpendicular and horizontal directions.
  • 2011
    Z5000IVS: unique, integrated vision system, CIJ coding + print verification
    A project born from the specific market need to get a post-marking verification. The small character system, Z5000IVS, integrated a vision system that verifies, in real-time, the readability and accuracy of messages. An advanced solution suitable for a particularly demanding market where quality, reliability and safety are essential.
  • 2012
    Esclusivo sistema di stampa Grafica per superfici NON assorbenti, Z640FDI
    E’ una soluzione rivolta a chi necessita di stampare su imballi secondari, che prima non potevano essere codificati direttamente. Grazie al nuovo inchiostro brevettato ZFAST a rapida essiccazione ed alto contrasto il sistema consente la perfetta riproduzione anche sulle superfici non assorbenti.  
  • 2013
    New BIO 511 ink
    From nature the ink with 100% biodegradable solvents.
    This ink guarantees excellent adhesion and fast drying on several surfaces. Furthermore, it does not affect the biodegradability of the substrates on which it is being printed. This is accomplished by using ethyl lactate which is  made using components extracted from soy and corn. The BIO 511 ink is EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) approved.
  • 2014 Z4700 - Una Nuova Esperienza di Codifica
    Facilità d’uso, gestione ottimizzata del sistema di marcatura, affidabilità e disponibilità continua in linea.
    Il sistema di codifica Z4700 sviluppato con il nuovo software ORKESTRA rivoluziona la marcatura. Una nuova esperienza di codifica con interfaccia utente personalizzabile per singolo operatore che guida l'interazione con il sistema di stampa Z4700.
