If the item is flat and delivered smoothly, meaning with low vibration and consistently straight and can travel very close to the printer, TIJ is the right fit. Another factor is ink delivery. With piezo head and CIJ printers, you typically use containers or reservoirs filled with ink that you have to refill and that ink is delivered through a separate printhead. TIJ is a cartridge based ink delivery system and every new cartridge IS a brand new printhead. Thermal inkjet technology is also high resolution that can handle printing very clear images, like barcodes, QR codes and logos. Of course there are plenty of other factors and you can speak to an InkJet, Inc. representative about your specific application for details.
