Trends Shaping The CIJ And Other Inkjet Coders Market

As leaders in the industrial coding and marking industry, we know that certain trends and factors influence the inkjet coding market.  Inkjet technology has long been a dependable and cost-effective method of marking a wide array of products and packaging without contact, whether printing batch numbers, best-by or sell-by dates, lot and bar codes, graphics and more.  This type of coding technology is popular in many industries, including food and beverage, electronics, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and toiletries, and more.

 
Inkjet coding technology is comprised of thermal inkjet, continuous inkjet and drop on demand printers.  According to reports, the inkjet coder market will experience exceptional growth opportunities in the coming years, as technological developments, including automatic flush systems and software designed to control and monitor ink thickness, will halt and clean print heads on a daily basis, saving time and increasing uptime on production lines. 
 
Factors impacting the escalation of the inkjet coders market in the coming years include air/ink mixture reduction, along with an increase in demand for reducing solvent evaporation.  Factors that could inhibit growth in the market include low quality marks that turn out not to be permanent, along with high running costs.  When compared to laser printers, resolution may be reduced due to the fact that inkjet coders often disperse small droplets of ink during the printing process; an issue that needs to be addressed.  Still, many manufacturers choose CIJ printers and other inkjet technologies due to a substantial reduction in downtime and the overall high performance printing qualities.
 
CIJ coding technology is ideal for generating lot codes, expiration dates, bar codes and other data on a wide array of primary packaging; small character CIJ printers are typically used in primary packaging applications, while large character CIJ printers are widely used for coding on cartons, boxes, or other secondary packaging.
