Thermal Inkjet Coding with Extended Reach Ability

Posted by Richard Turner on May 14, 2021 9:00:00 AM

Thermal Inkjet Coding Technology Breakthrough: Extended Reach Ink Cartridge for Date Coding Concave and Hard to Reach Surfaces.

Since its introduction into coding and marking many years ago, thermal inkjet (TIJ) technology has steadily expanded its market presence with incremental technology and ink innovations. Originally, thermal inkjet coders were only used as case coders due to the limited ink options - essentially, only water based inks for porous surfaces like master cases. The last few years have seen an expanding of applications due to new ink cartridge innovations allowing for more aggressive, solvent based inks. These new inks made it possible to install TIJ coders into all types of applications from bottle coding to various types of plastics and much more! While ink formulations contributed to an increase in potential installations and applications for the technology, the throw distance was still a limiting factor.
