Looking at new coding equipment? Have you considered Thermal Ink Jet? With its high quality and high contrast print, it is a viable technology alternative to Drop on Demand, Continuous Ink Jet and Thermal Overprint coding for high speed production lines.
The G-Series Thermal Ink Jet system from Domino provides high speed, high quality printing of complex text and barcodes. With Domino's latest ink developments, G-Series has become an effective printing choice for a wide range of carton, film and even building material applications.
Thermal ink jet technology uses proven Hewlett Packard disposable ink jet cartridges, which means very clean and simple consumable/fluid replacement, and minimal maintenance. Since the cartridge contains both the ink and the printhead, a new printhead and ink system is supplied with every ink changeover, ensuring high reliability and consistent print quality. But don't think this makes it an expensive consumable option – TIJ consistently outperforms traditional coding methods and provides a much lower total cost of ownership.
Domino has a comprehensive range of thermal ink jet inks that produce high contrast, scratch-resistant 2D and linear barcodes on both porous and non-porous surfaces, making G-Series thermal ink jet perfect for coding onto cartons, films, sachets/pouches, labels, foils and blister-packs.
Beyond coding conventional FMCG packaging, G-Series has also been a successful printing solution for the building materials industry for coding product information, logos, batch codes and barcodes on to timber, metal and plaster-board.
If traceability and unique product identification are issues on your radar, the G-Series is ideal for high-speed serialisation as it can produce up to 400 codes per minute.
