What is CIJ or continuous inkjet technology?

Inkjet code printers commonly referred to as CIJ or continuous inkjet printers are dot matrix style printers that produce text, dates, batch/lot codes, graphics and linear, 2D and QR barcodes. CIJ printers are a great choice if you are needing to produce high volume, high speed non-contact printing of variable information, generally on primary products (for example “best if used by” date codes).

Continuous inkjet printers can mark onto virtually any substrate type ranging from plastic bags, glass jars, metal cans, paper cartons and more. Small character inkjet printers are mainly used for primary packaging of consumer goods products.

Because of the variety of ink types and colors available, you can achieve a high-contrast mark on nearly any color packaging. High-contrast marks are important to make sure your products are moving through the distribution line quickly and correctly. Keep in mind that CIJ technology relies on the use of solvent-based inks and can be flammable so make sure your operators are using safety wear when handling.

Another consideration for using CIJ inks is to protect your product from counterfeit. Continuous inkjet inks can mark security codes and internal tracking on the product that can be seen in certain circumstances known only by the manufacturer. Security UV inks are not visible to the naked eye, so they offer your products an extra level of protection.

Traceability is also very important when it comes to selecting the right equipment, you’re your products. All consumer goods products must contain some kind of tracking number, in the form of date codes, lot codes and batch codes. This is a crucial step in the supply chain identifying where or when it was produced in case of a recall or other issue. Diagraph’s Linx CIJ systems allow you to simplify the automated coding process with capabilities for storing diverse SKUs and preprogramming custom line settings. These features are instrumental in putting the right code, on the right products for end user traceability.
