Plastic Pipes & Extrusion

Print excellent quality codes and marks onto plastic pipes and extrusions

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.

Seamless printer integration

TIJ printers can be simply fitted on to a conveyor system or integrated into the production line. Our lightweight, custom-made frames are designed to position the printer at the required point of use with little or no disruption.
