From company updates to helpful hints and tips - Rotech's blog is a one stop shop for coding & marking and packaging information.
Adjusting print settings, monitoring ink levels and editing print jobs is now easier than ever, with the addition of the Integra Vivid
By going lean with their coding and marking, many manufacturers have boosted their productivity, welcomed cost-savings and even improved their sustainability credentials – a key factor for many consumers when making a purchase decision.
CIJ legacy printers are prone to long-term health issues and need regular maintenance check-ups. By taking out a Continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer and replacing it with a Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) printer, you eliminate chronic conditions, improving your overall line health immediately and indefinitely.
One of the major plus points for thermal inkjet (TIJ) is that all the printing components are held within the ink cartridge itself, so when you swap your old cartridge for a new one, you are effectively replacing the printhead, hence why TIJ is a maintenance-free coding technology.
In 2019 Rotech published an article highlighting packaging predictions for the upcoming year. Funnily enough, many ring true today. So, it’s not surprising that there is still a growing pressure to “create a circular economy by reducing single-use plastics” which is dictating the decisions of all manufacturers and consumers alike. But what steps are being made by Rotech to improve sustainability?
Virtually all products/packaging destined for consumers need to carry a legible mark or code. This could be a batch number to aid traceability, a use-by date code to protect consumers, or a datamatrix barcode for serialisation.
At Rotech, we have witnessed multiple coding & marking crime scenes. The businesses affected are found drowning in downtime, cleanup costs, damage, and maintenance. It’s finally time to find out who is responsible. WHO DID IT?
One of the top complaints that we get from manufacturers reaching to us for guidance on their coding and marking operations, is that the maintenance involved in the day-to-day running of their coding system is too costly. They usually all have something in common – that they’re printing on their products or packaging using continuous inkjet (CIJ) technology.
