Well, Coding and marking system is like that most people haven’t thought about it but if once you know what it is then wherever you go you will notice that there are multiple uses of this coding and marking system.

The coding and marking system is a way of putting alphanumeric coding onto the products. In our day to day life we use lots of products which have small black printed words or numbers but never give them a second thought. So this is the result of these products have been coded by any technique of coding and marking system through inkjet or laser machines. Coding and marking is often completed on almost any products from sheets of metal eggshells.

Now thinking about what’s good about coding and marking :

For example, The company who package jam in glass jars that receives a complaint about there was a broken glass in one of their pots of jam. From this, the company thought of other jars of jam which may also contain the piece of broken glass so they will recall all of the pots of jam that they have sold, it could even send them out of business.

Now imagine, the coding and marking was a part of the packaging process and each pot was marked with a batch number. The company would very quickly be able to recall that certain batch and could also tell exactly where the specific batches of the jars were sent.

Of course, This is just a hypothetical scenario and there are many more reasons that make coding and marking important to a whole host of businesses.

With the use of computers in each industry, the use of the printer is also increased. Industrial printers are used mainly for the bar code, stamp printing, carton printing, and also printing on wooden items for some lumber industries.

The different types of industrial inkjet printer are :

  1. Industrial printing equipment :

These printers are used for screen printing, digital printing, label printing, letterpress printing, and also for flexographic printing. Screen printing uses a screen for transferring an image to another medium. Digital printing directly transfers an image for printing from the particular file.

 

  1. Bar code printer :

Generally each product has a bar code sticker on the cover of the product. This is like a price label for the product and this is done where computerized billing systems are available. These bar codes are printed by the printer and for choosing bar code printer we can concentrate on some things like the resolution of print, rate and its width.

 

  1. Kiosk and POS printers:

These devices used for electronic bill payments or electronic cash registers. This device use dot matrix or thermal printing technologies.

 

  1. Label Printers :

Nowadays each product has their label which points to the brand name or product specification. Label printers are used for both to print labels as well as bar codes too.

 

  1. CD Printers :

The CD industries use a special kind of printer to print on CDs. The main thing for CD printer is the high resolution which can produce high resolution, good quality, colored print. CD Printer should be fast in printing and drying techniques and should be compatible with various softwares.

Thus, industrial inkjet printers are useful to many industries and are available in very affordable budgets.

I found very good industrial inkjet printer in my budget

I basically do the packaging for my own products at my own plant and always needed a proper industry grade inkjet printer. I needed a high speed printing device to make high quality prints on labels as fast as possible.

So I decided to try out something. I was checking out the internet for various industrial inkjet printing systems and came across Citronix systems. Here I read about the ci1000 that could print on cans at speed 600 feet/minute for two line codes. This system cost me around £4000 total with installation and practically my output rate has been doubled.

The system comes with a 2-year warranty that can be extended. Although a little bit less to my liking I have been assured that the industrial inkjet printer can achieve 30,000 hours and 450,000,000 million print cycles Mean Time before Failure (MTBF). If that was not enough, I could of course go in for extended warranty. And besides at the end of two years I must have made enough to add another industrial inkjet printer for the label printing process.

I additionally plan to use the system to print for other manufacturers. It is a nice way to make a little extra this way so that other expenses can get easily managed. I have been using the system for 6 months now and that machine hardly requires any maintenance. We just need to keep the ink flowing and it keeps on printing. I don’t get any dripping problems, no wastage and no mess whatsoever. So yes you can say I got a great industrial inkjet printer at a budget price and can make really great use of it.. It suffices to say that the machine is a high utility device.

How coding and printing system is used in industries

Industrial coding and printing is an important process and it is the segment of a manufacturing unit that sees the heaviest of workloads. This is the reason why most manufacturing units have automated their coding and printing processes.

In these processes basically a really fast printer is used to print on a number of products as they arrive on a conveyor system. This process involves coding details onto products like price, manufacture date, batch number etc.  This means you need to use really high speed printing devices that can print without contact preferably and have high storage capacity for inks.

Ideally newer systems that have come up for such requirements are all continuous inkjet systems. Why? Because first of all these solvents can recover solvents automatically hence saving you from wastage of ink. Secondly you can use inexpensive aftermarket ink to code and print. There is no disruption of work while refilling ink reservoirs.

Newer systems are consuming less power. In fact some of the best are known to consume below 27 Watts. Hence they operate at very low costs and no consumables are wasted on these systems. Lastly they are very compact and very easy to install, operate and maintain.

The systems usually come with combined Printheads and connection pipes that get cleaned the moment the machine is started. That is why these systems are not that difficult to maintain. The Printheads also shut down fast in case of power outages to prevent wastage due to the ink dripping out.

All in all industrial coding and printing systems are so useful.
