Coding and marking is crucial to achieve security and traceability on plastic pipes and extrusions. Choosing a solution that can manage variation and withstand the changing manufacturing environments is key.
Thermal inkjet (TIJ)
Thermal inkjet printers can apply black, white or UV ink to plastic and metals. The click in, click out cartridges are replaceable within a matter of seconds, ensuring quick colour changes and limited downtime. Each compact system can produce clear, fade resistant barcodes, variable data, and graphics whilst in harsh, industrial environments.
Another advantage of TIJ technology is that it is maintenance-free and contains no moving parts, resulting in a easy to use system that requires no regular repairs and servicing.
