Continuous inkjet printing is a versatile technology optimized for primary packaging and secondary packaging. It is a great choice for marking date and traceability codes using small characters on the widest variety of surface and material types. It performs well at both low and very high production line speeds.

Examples of CIJ printing include batch codes, date codes, expiration dates and so much more!

Continuous inkjet printing is designed to produce high volume, high speed product marking with minimal ink consumption.

The appearance of a CIJ print is "dotted" as individual drops are printed next to each other at visible distances for efficient marking. CIJ printing is mainly about content.

If efficiency is your main concern with the final printed image, CIJ printing and the Linx 8900 series is the right choice for you.

The ResMark 5000 high resolution inkjet printer or the PA7100 print & apply labeling machine offer the capability for larger prints and logos on your products. 

Preventative maintenance intervals range from 1,400 to 18,000 hours or up to 24 months depending on ink type, environment and printer model.
