Industrial Inkjet Printer

Continuous InkJet

Industrial InkJet printer technology uses electrically charged ink droplets to create high quality characters constructed on a grid configuration. Using a wide range of industrial inkjet inks that have been established for exact industry applications, the A-Series can print text, graphics and variable data, such as product identification directly onto substrates including:

  • Food
  • Glass
  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Rubber

How it Works

The printhead on our industrial inkjet printer contains an ink drop-generator with a vibrating drive rod. This creates ultrasonic pressure waves in the in jet ink, breaking it up into individual droplets. When these droplets falls between a set of electrodes, individual droplets are intermittently charged. The amount of charge provided to each droplet regulates how far it will be dispersed out of the stream when progressing through the deflector plates and therefore its position on the product.

By arranging a group of these droplets close together, a variety of characters are printed as the product passes the print head. Ink droplets not deflected out of the flow are re-circulated to repeat the process. This is a highly efficient use of inkjet ink, and the printing method is ideal for Product Identification (PI).


Key Benefits

The Industrial InkJet printer offers a broad range of benefits for businesses. As well as the ability to print a variety of text and graphics, allowing product identification, these include:

  • Automatic self-cleaning printhead. This ensures that the print nozzle remains clear, even on frequent start-stop manufacturing lines
  • Unrivalled printhead technology produces better droplet placement and print quality
  • High speed printing that keeps up with today’s fast production lines
  • Non-contact printing that allows irregular and flexible surfaces to be coded
