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.

Grabbing shoppers’ attention in the grocery aisle on a crowded supermarket shelf or at the point of purchase is becoming much more challenging, especially when competing against brands with bigger marketing budgets.
The news across the globe about South Africa’s calamitous listeriosis outbreak continues to make headlines. By March 26, 982 laboratory-confirmed listeriosis cases across the country were reported to NICD since the beginning of January 2017, and 189 deaths recorded.
The World Health Day message on April 7 was simple: giving people access to healthcare without the prospect of financial hardship. This is regardless of where they’re from; whether in Africa, Asia, South America or the United States. What matters according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), which is behind the campaign, is that there’s ‘Health for All’.
Bulky packaging is unnecessary when it comes to hanging your products in a neat and orderly way, especially in a retail environment. The less material you use to hang your packages, the less money you’re going to have to spend on hanging supplies like hang tabs and display strips.
