How Push-Mode Piezo Print Technology Saves Significant Costs in Packaging Compliance Every package printed with a noncompliant mark is a package you can't ship, costing your company time and money. Improving print technology can help improve packaging compliance. Diagraph's industrial inkjet printing technology was built specifically to improve print quality and production line uptime for manufacturing environments. Push-Mode Piezo Print Engines With a single actuation, Diagraph’s push-mode piezo print technology can dispense three times the volume of ink compared to a shared bend-mode piezo print system. The push-mode piezo technology fires once per pixel while bend-mode print engines fire three or more times per pixel. Reduced firing actuations lengthen the life of Diagraph’s print engine by three times compared to other engines on the market. The darker, single drop provides greater ink contrast for better code scanning and package compliance. Benefits of Push-Mode Print Technology Push-mode piezo print technology provides several benefits above and beyond those available with bend-mode piezo print systems. The greater volume of ink throw and greater ink throw distance of push-mode piezo print technology helps keep dust and debris away from the printhead. The greater ink throw distance also allows for more flexibility in the print line. Fewer packages will be misprinted since the printhead’s larger alignment range allows for clear and accurate printing. The larger nozzle is easier to keep clean. Diagraph’s print engine technology has an auto cleaning function built in. Instead of having to stop production and clean the nozzles separately, Diagraph’s software runs a cleaning cycle while the system is operating. The nozzles can be cleaned in as little as ten seconds, with virtually no loss of production time. Repair, Not Replace Diagraph’s print engine technology is designed to be repairable so it can be fixed easily and cost effectively. A Diagraph repaired printhead can be ordered for an online swap of a current print system at less than 40-50% the cost of a new printhead. Replacing a bend-mode inkjet printhead costs 100% of the original printhead. The working life of a Diagraph inkjet printing system using a push-mode piezo print engine is up to 10 years when properly maintained. The working life for a bend-mode printhead that sees the same amount of use is 2 to 3 years. The cost savings add up very quickly for any company printing and shipping large amounts of product. Diagraph’s push-mode print engine has a published lifetime of >90 billion firings—almost four times longer than some competitive systems that claim 25 billion firings. Diagraph’s industrial inkjet print technology provides fast, accurate and reliable printing on packaging—ensuring all packages are compliant with shipping regulations.
