Smart inks for marking and coding packaging

Food and drink manufacturers prepare and pack their products in challenging environments. Amid the steam, grease, and scalding heat, they have to apply their batch codesbest-before dates, and other useful data. That’s when manufacturers need the right ink for the right application – where it has the ability to cut through the obstructions and stay put on a wide range of packaging materials.

This white paper explains how manufacturers of inks for Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) coding are developing smarter inks to overcome the challenges of printing on tricky substrates and in demanding manufacturing conditions. Their approach is not to create an ink for every application, but to develop a range of inks that are versatile enough to cope with the latest consumer-driven marking challenges.
