SPQ 1010 Ink for 1000 Series Thermal Inkjet Printers

Recently it was announced that Markem-Imaje introduced a new ink for the thermal inkjet printers 1000 Series, the SPQ 1010 ink. Our new ink is designed specifically to improve coding quality and reduce downtime in the confectionery, cosmetics, food, and tobacco industries, and offers the best drying times so manufacturers can rely on exceptional quality coding from the first print to last print on every production run, without mechanical aid. The new SPQ (Superior Print Quality) 1010 ink integrates seamlessly with our 1050 and 1200 thermal inkjet printers, allowing manufacturers to enjoy uniform high-resolution printing at even the highest speeds using an HP thermal inkjet 45Si cartridge. The new ink is designed to print text and serialized barcodes on a wide array of non-porous substrates. Superior Print Quality 1010 ink offers enhanced flexibility on the production line due to its throw distance, and provides better resolution and print quality because of the ink's superior optical density. No printhead wiping is necessary because the inkjet cartridges have no moving parts. Manufacturers will experience fewer or no points of failure during production as is often the case with mechanical de-capping solutions. The SPQ 1010 offers a patented chemical de-capping process, unlike traditional inks used in thermal inkjet printing, which can cause printhead nozzles to become blocked or capped after a period of no use. Mark Rapposelli, Markem-Imaje's future product marketing director, says the SPQ 1010 ink is "unsurpassed in its category." The 1000 Series printers are designed to be low maintenance and easy to operate; now, with the addition of the new ink, the already robust printers are better than ever. Looking for thermal inkjet printing solutions? At Markem-Imaje, we go above and beyond our customers' expectations.
