A leading UK manufacturer of munitions contacted ATD to discuss the feasibility of individually marking shell cases with a data matrix bar code and human-readable information. ATD suggested that Industrial Laser Marking or coding with a Continuous Inkjet printer would be the best options to evaluate.
An ATD IP500 Thermal Inkjet Printer has been chosen by a well known UK manufacturer of flooring adhesives and floor preparation products for direct marking of time and date codes onto their product containers.
Choosing the correct industrial coding equipment is vital to achieving consistent print quality, reliability and legibility. In some cases, there may be several potential coding solutions, and ATD will work with the customer to determine which one is best suited to their application. Often the unique nature of their products, or their marking requirements, will be the deciding factor.
Day-Impex Choose ATD’s Leibinger Jet3pi Continuous Inkjet Printer as their Industrial Coding Solution
ATD were approached by Day-Impex to help them to improve the marking on their range of glass sprinkler bulbs. These liquid filled capsules are designed to shatter when the liquid reaches a well-defined temperature, triggering the sprinkler system. The small components range in size from 5mm to 2.5mm in diameter and each must be marked with an identifying code.
