Gone are the days when the passport office experiences downtime due to periodic printer maintenance and parts replacement. The 700i is the third passport printer generation with a complete passport surface contactless and maintenance free passport transport system - patented by DILETTA.

The advantages are:

Both the main printer unit and print head are incredibly durable, so changing one of the individual ink tanks is all you will ever likely need to do. However, telephone support is included in the price while optional ‘return to base’ service and on site support is also available when you need it – if you need it.

Perfect for the Passport Office Environment

Designed with the passport office in mind, the 700i take up very little vertical space. Thanks to flat construction and a small, easily accessible control panel, it makes very effective use of limited office space. Even noise levels have been taken into consideration. Electrical consumption has also been addressed with the energy-saving design cutting usage to 17W or less during operation and 0.8W or less during standby.

Cost saving individual ink tanks

The DILETTA 700i comes standard with high efficiency ink tanks, allowing them to easily cope with large volume printing demands. The individual tanks eliminate ink wastage and make running costs extremely economical for both mono and colour prints.
