Continuous Inkjet Printing For The Beverage Industry

Today beverages are packaged in plastic, glass, aluminum, cartons and other materials. What is the best coding solution for manufacturers who want clear, reliable printing of date codes, gaming or promotional codes, batch numbers, and other data? We know the production environment is extremely demanding considering humidity, condensation, super high-speed production lines and other factors. Downtime due to a malfunction with your coding and marking system simply isn't an option. When you've spent a considerable sum on filling and packaging equipment, your coder shouldn't slow things down. While there are several marking systems for the substrates beverages are packaged in, a CIJ printer may be your best bet.

Continuous inkjet printers give you an advantage over other technologies, including laser and TTO, because they're so versatile and capable of printing on bottles, caps, lids, cartons, plastic bottles, glass, aluminum cans, and even flexible pouches. Most other coding technologies are more limited in scope; for instance thermal inkjet printers are used more often by manufacturers who need coding solutions for paperboard, boxes, cartons, trays, shrink wrap, and similar substrates. Considering the condensation that's often an issue when producing beverages, it's essential to have a coding system you can rely on to produce indelible codes that are easy to read and won't smear or fade.
