For decades, industrial coding has been an essential element of product manufacturing, packaging, and distribution. Modern supply chains rely on markings such as barcodes and lot numbers to direct shipments to their rightful destinations and to perform inventory. In industries such as food production, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and chemical production, these labels are also required by government regulations to guarantee traceability. With full traceability, companies can perform quality control at a high level, perform accurate recalls, and gain a comprehensive view of where all products are located.
Of course, codes are only valuable if they are both completely legible and machine-readable. If codes are applied incorrectly or made with the wrong ink, it can lead to quick deterioration. Consequently, manufacturing companies may inadvertently cause major supply chain issues and possibly violate regulations such as the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).
To help companies avoid these serious consequences, InkJet, Inc. offers a variety of industrial coding inks for specific applications, substrates, and printer models. Here’s a sample overview of our catalog.
