Thermal Inkjet Printers

Our thermal inkjet printers provide a high resolution digital alternative to roller coders, valvejet and other industrial printers. The wide range of ink cartridges available makes them suitable for coding onto boxes, trays, sleeves and plastic packaging materials.

Cartridge ink systems with thermal inkjet printers mean there is no servicing or maintenance required. Thermal inkjet printing is a fast, clean and efficient solution.



What is Thermal Inkjet Printing?

Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) printers use standard ink cartridge systems and do not require any bottles of inks or solvent, making TIJ printers clean and simple to use.

Thermal inkjet printers use a drop ejection process, storing ink in a cartridge that regulates the pressure of the fluid. Inks are then delivered to the firing chamber and heated to more than 1,000,000 °C/second by an electric resistor. A 0.1 micrometer thick film of ink is heated to around 340°C, from which a bubble is formed to expel the ink. A droplet breaks away from this bubble causing it to collapse, the firing chamber then refills as the whole process repeats.

Our TIJ printers can help reduce production costs by removing labels and reducing stock-keeping units on pre-printed packaging. While error-free coding will maximise uptime and reduce wastage.
