For over 30 years, InkJet, Inc. has been formulating specialty inks and selling marking solutions to companies of all sizes and industry specifications. Offering continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers, thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers, and print-and-apply labelers, we’ve developed industrial coding solutions that will meet each client’s unique needs. Whether you require a CIJ printer that can label bottles moving at 1050 ft/min or a TIJ model suited to intermittent operation that can create barcodes with a 600 x 300 DPI resolution, our expert guidance can help you find the perfect industrial coding solution for your unique operation. 

Our industrial marking systems work within the following industries and are able to increase productivity, improve product presentation, and reduce operational downtime:

Food and Beverage Packaging

_____

Food and drink products must display various codes in order to satisfy distribution channel and/or state government requirements. Common requirements include lot codes, best-before dates, and scannable barcodes. If these codes are absent or illegibly applied, it can cause inventory errors, traceability issues, product recall problems, and potentially make you liable to incur costly fees.

If you manage a food packaging facility, a beverage bottling/canning company, or a pet food enterprise that needs to keep its merchandise reliably coded, our industrial coding solutions can help. To address your operation’s requirements, we offer hardware suitable for use with:

  • Porous and Non-Porous Applications: Simply tell us what materials you are working with, and we can provide you with a compatible printer and ink combination perfectly suited to your needs and your budget.
     
  • Curved and Flat Surfaces: Metal cans, paper bags, plastic bottles, flexible pouches, paperboard cartons, and more can all be printed on easily and reliably with the right industrial marking systems.

Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals, and Personal Care Products

____

Prescription drugs, cosmetics, cleaning supplies, and other commercial chemicals are all subject to different regulations determining what markings must be included on the packaging. Whether the product needs to follow the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, Physician Labeling Rule Requirements, or an OTC drug monograph, the packaging must prominently display:

  • Statement of identity (i.e., the name of the product and a generic description)
  • Title and the location of manufacturer or distributor
  • Expiration date
  • Directions for use
  • Control numbers
  • Net quantity of contents 

These rules apply to everything from highly-regulated substances and medications to detergent, acne cream, and even sunscreen. Failure to comply with these labeling regulations can result in extensive product recalls, federally enforced fines, and may even open your company up to the possibility of a lawsuit. 

Fortunately, InkJet, Inc.’s industrial marking systems are designed for reliability and can help ensure that each of your products is coded in a legible, legally compliant manner. Depending on your line’s requirements, we offer:

  • Continuous inkjet printers that are suited to continuous industrial production lines and 24/7 operation.
     
  • Thermal inkjet printers that are light, compact, and sometimes able to be used in a handheld manner. These printers are better for intermittent production lines with lower volumes than that of what CIJ printers excel at.

Print-and-apply labelers that are quick-moving and versatile enough to handle printing and applying labels to primary, secondary, and tertiary packaging.

Industrial Material Marking

_______

Construction materials like metal pipes, electrical cables, and lumber are frequently marked with company logos, production time stamps, and scannable barcodes to prevent counterfeiting and to ensure traceability. While these markings are common in the industry, applying them isn’t always easy. 

Producing wires, cables, pipes, or lumber typically requires continuous line movement, sometimes at high speeds. The facilities that produce these materials are often dusty and hot, leading to potential work stoppages if any equipment isn’t durably built. To protect your operation from the expensive downtime and excessive waste associated with line interruptions, you need an industrial coding solution that is built for continuous coding and is built to last. 

We help manufacturers meet these requirements by offering the DuraCode continuous inkjet printer. This industrial marking system offers:

  • Continuous printing up to 1050 ft/min with 24/7 operation. 
  • Some environmental resistance, due to the model’s IP55 certified stainless steel construction.
  • Simple usability, as the DuraCode is operated either through an intuitive touch-screen or keyboard interface

For slower extrusions processes requiring high-res printing, we recommend Precision Series high-resolution case coding printers
