Hx Ultro: High-Speed, Bulk Ink TIJ Printer for Flexible Packaging Skip to main content

The coding and marking process is vital for adding essential details such as expiration dates, batch numbers, and product information directly onto the flexible packaging. In an industry where the speed of production lines often pushes the limits of technology, the need for a coding and marking solution that can keep pace, without sacrificing quality or causing delays, is crucial. This is where the integration of advanced technologies like the MapleJet Hx Ultro Bulk Ink TIJ printer into the production lines comes into play. By combining high-resolution printing capabilities with the efficiency of bulk ink systems, this integration promises to revolutionize the way snack food producers approach the challenges of flexible packaging.

Understanding Coding and Marking Technologies

Before diving into the specifics of the MapleJet Hx Ultro bulk ink TIJ printer, it’s important to understand the landscape of coding and marking technologies:

  • Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) technology has been the go-to for many years, prized for its speed and adaptability. However, it often falls short in terms of resolution, maintenance, and environmental impact.
  •  Thermal Transfer Overprinting (TTO) offers high-resolution prints on flexible packaging, making it a favourite for specific applications. Yet, it involves complex mechanical systems and requires significant maintenance.
  •  Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology, the latest in this evolution, offers a blend of high resolution, ease of use, and versatility. It uses cartridges that are easy to replace, reducing downtime and maintenance needs.

The TIJ Printer Advantage

TIJ technology stands out for several reasons:

  1. Higher Resolution and Print Quality: TIJ delivers precise, high-quality print, ideal for detailed graphics, QR codes, and small text that requires clarity.
  2.  Simplicity and Ease of Maintenance: With fewer moving parts than its predecessors, TIJ systems are less prone to mechanical issues, streamlining operations.
  3.  Versatility: TIJ printers can use a variety of inks to print on different substrates, making them incredibly versatile.
  4.  Environmental and Workplace Safety: The solvent-free inks used in TIJ printers are safer for workers and the environment, a crucial consideration in food packaging.
