Continuous Inkjet Printers (CIJ)

Continuous ink jet printers are used to print variable information, such as dates or batch codes, on individual products as they move along the production line - regardless of porosity, size, shape or texture.

PrinterNet, remote CIJ printer monitoring and support, enables customers to access and control Linx coders anywhere, anytime and enables Linx to provide remote support to keep lines running. 

With concealed, easy-to-clean printheads, error-free touch-screen control and simple self-service capability, Linx Printing Technologies provide a cost-effective and efficient solution compared to similar industrial inkjet printers on the market.



Why Employ Continuous Inkjet Printers?

Continuous inkjet coders are perfectly suited for printing a wide range of information onto products and packaging on production lines. They are designed for automatic printing of batch codes, dates, barcodes, number sequences, general text, and even brand & product names.

Manufacturers and packing operations often use them for reliable traceability and in specific industries, compliance with legislative requirements. Linx continuous inkjet printers are renowned worldwide for ease of use, reliability, low running costs and the ability to mark materials of nearly any texture, shape, size or porosity.

How does a continuous inkjet work?

The continuous inkjet printing process works by expelling electrically charged ink droplets from a printhead nozzle and passing them through an electric field. 

The ink jet is broken into drops inside the chamber through a pulse from the piezoelectric crystal. Droplets that are required for printing are charged by an electrode as they break off from the ink jet, and the printer re-circulates the rest.

The droplets, now charged, pass through an electrostatic field between deflector plates, a combination of speed and charge determines the correct position of the droplet on the substrate. 

Up to 120,000 of these tiny droplets – half the diameter of a human hair - are expelled every second, and this is done without contact to the material being printed on.
