TIJ printers contribute to mass production of covid essentials Skip to main content

From promoting consumer safety by providing reliable date codes to the food manufacturing industry, MapleJet Co. TIJ printers have engaged in another important ‘corporate social responsibility’ practice by contributing to the mass production of pandemic essentials such as respiratory protective masks and hand sanitizer bottles during the Covid-19 period.

Traditionally, Continuous Inkjet or CIJ printer has been used in the medical industry. However, when the pandemic hits the globe, a lot of manufacturing companies quickly responded by converting their manufacturing lines to produce pandemic essentials to bear the demand.  This immediate shift was disadvantageous for CIJ printers due to their need for extensive and time-consuming setup and operator training to run the printer. This paved the way for thermal inkjet or TIJ printers such as Hx Nitro to become an ideal ink jet printer because it is easy to install and operate, and offers a low cost of ownership.

MapleJet Hx Nitro TIJ printers, through its Turkish distributor – Abant Machinery Co., coded millions of respiratory protective masks that are exported across Europe and South American countries. Hx Nitro prints readable text and logos onto non-woven fabric material before they are turned into a mask. The printer uses an ink cartridge that is fast-drying and excellent adhesion to any porous material.

Aside from coding onto respiratory protective masks, MapleJet ink jet TIJ printers coded thousand of hand sanitizers for different manufacturers to print production date, expiration, and batch numbers directly onto the PET plastic bottles and onto the bottle’s label.
