Discover Videojet AE’s Advanced Continuous Inkjet Technology
Economical and Long-Life Inkjet Coding
Ideal for printing on flat or curved surfaces, Inkjet Coding technology is a non-contact printing method that can be used to print most inks on almost any surface. With over 40 years of experience, Videojet offers a range of inkjet solutions and application expertise to help you identify the right printing solutions for your needs.
Basically, Continuous Inkjet Coding or marking or printers is a system that used for contactless printing of information on products and packages. In this type of printer, the ink flow (jet) passes through an injector in the inkjet print head. A pressurized electric resonator vibrates the ink stream and separates the stream into uniform drops. A discharge electrode is placed near the breaking point of the ink. The size of each drop of ink leaving the stream is proportional to the applied voltage load. Then, the charged droplets pass between the two deflectors and a high constant voltage current occurs between these two elements.
The Continuous Inkjet Printers (CIJ) charge the individual ink drops that make up a message. Each drop, with its specific charge, flies through a magnetic field made inside the printhead. The amount of charge placed on the drop determines the amount of deflection it has in this field. The drops that get deflected most make up the top line of code, or the top drops of a single line code. The drops that get deflected a little make up the lower lines of code or the lower drops of a single line character. The drops that do not get any charge do not get deflected and land inside the printhead and go back into the ink system.

One of the most common questions we receive at Videojet is “How do I choose the right marking technology for my application?” The truth is that marking technology is not one-mold technology, and there are a number of different factors that go into choosing the best solution for your application. So before investing heavily in marking equipment for your facility, be sure to consider three main aspects that will help you choose the right technology.
