ATD is pleased to announce the launch of new software for the Leibinger Jet3 range of Continuous Inkjet Printers.
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 achieve 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.
High Resolution Inkjet printing EAN128 barcodes directly onto an outer case dramatically reduces the costs per print compared to using a label. The only cost is the ink that is used, eliminating the waste of paying for backing paper and the unused parts of thermal transfer ribbons.
The ATD Leibinger Jet3pi continuous inkjet printer has been chosen by Proadec to mark their black thermoplastic edging strip with white pigmented ink.
One of the world’s leading producers of drywall (plasterboard) wanted to improve their brand image by printing high-resolution text and graphics onto each stack of product they manufacture.
The specification called for a printed area up to 500mm high on stacks up to 5 metres in length.
ATD was selected to design and install the systems, based on our IP8000 High Resolution Industrial Inkjet Printer.
The system had to automatically adjust for different stack sizes, be robust enough to print on a moving stack, and avoid damage from mis-aligned stacks.
The systems are now installed in plants throughout Europe, working 24/7.
ATD Marking Systems are committed to offering quality printing solutions to all our customers, and our range of industrial inkjet printers is no exception. Here you can find out more detail about the industrial inkjet printers we offer and their unique features.
Traceability is very important, especially in the automotive and aerospace industries. One of ATD’s customers supplies turbo-charger blades and their end user requested a unique 2D barcode on each unit to allow them to track inventory and manufacturing information.
Adding a label over-printer to an existing labeling machine can be difficult.
There may not be space to fit a thermal transfer print engine and ribbon rolls, and then a separate encoder may be needed to synchronise the printer with the label’s movement.
One of ATDs existing customers needed to add some real-time information to a pre-printed label. They asked if we could help. ATD suggested an IP500 Thermal Inkjet Printer.
