Continuous performance: continuous inkjet coders
Issued by Pyrotec - Feb 27th 2018, 10:14
Does your business rely on technologies that offer reliability, speed, and flexibility? When it comes to your printing, coding and marking requirements, continuous inkjet (CIJ) technology is an ideal choice.
Engineered for fast-paced, demanding industries such as food and beverage, cosmetics, toiletries, electrical equipment, electronics, cables, tubes, and profiles – CIJ printers are frequently used in production environments that require high-performance, high-speed coding and marking solutions.
How does CIJ technology work?
A high-pressure pump guides liquid ink from a reservoir through a nozzle, creating a precise and continuous jet of ink droplets. The high frequency of drop expulsion makes it possible for these types of machines to print accurately at extremely high speeds.
Why choose CIJ technology?
CIJ printers can be used to mark or code on almost any material, at any speed and orientation. This type of printer is also compatible with multiple sizes, shapes, and textures. Whether you want to print logos and text or date codes, lot codes and barcodes, you can do so on substrates as diverse as metal, glass, wood, plastic, and paper.
Compared to many other technologies, CIJ printers can perform optimally for many hours before requiring service. This leads to very competitive maintenance costs.
CIJ printers use ink that offers low evaporation, which means they dry fast and are therefore perfectly suited to high-speed production lines.

For many years Rowan Beattie, Pyrotec’s managing director, has been known for emphasising to his staff that ‘by satisfying our most demanding customer we’ll satisfy all our customers’.
With the launch of the 4700 drop-on-demand (DOD) valvejet coder from Markem-Imaje, valvejet printer users can now add ink on-the-fly without stopping high-speed production. They can also print two sides of a case simultaneously or very large characters on one side to enhance code readability and help minimise logistics mistakes.
