Continuous performance: continuous inkjet coders
Issued by Pyrotec - Feb 27th, 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.

According to Denny Bros Ltd, the inventor of the Fix-a-Form® booklet labels, the UK government turned to informational labelling to help tackle the growing levels of obesity among Britons. Many products now have traffic-light labels on the front of their packaging, showing the levels of ingredients, such as salt and fat, in the product. However, some have suggested that these red, amber and green designs don’t work.
Unlike the seasonal fashion designs for clothing, packaging design trends seem to stick around for some time. However, as we rapidly approach the end of 2018, there are some that are no longer finding traction on retail shelves.
On-pack promotions are one of the most frequently used methods of differentiating products at retail to boost sales, evoke an emotional response and drive brand loyalty.
