How to change continuous inkjet coding technology to meet future production needs?

Although continuous inkjet printing technology is currently the most popular printing technology on the market, there is no remarkable technological innovation. It is important to know that in manufacturing, technological development can bring significant results in production, speed and production lines. Change. Similarly, the development of digital technology has contributed to the improvement of product traceability, and customers expect and require products to display more information. How to maintain an advantage in future signage applications? First, we need to recognize the many challenges that need to be addressed. At present, CIJ technology faces many challenges: 1. The production environment and industry applications pose new challenges to continuous inkjet coding technology. High-speed production lines require continuous inkjet coding technology to be able to keep pace. A modern soft drink canning line can produce 2,000 cans per minute, or 33 cans per second. If the product moves at a high speed along the packaging line and the printer cannot maintain the same speed, or the printer is not installed properly on the production line (the distance between the print head and the product, the angle, etc.), it will not only cause coding errors, but also affect the print quality. Obviously, the information may not be printed where it should be printed, or the fonts printed on the product surface or on the label may be stretched and deformed. The modern production environment requires that all processes can withstand extreme speeds and harsh environments. Some products may need to be produced under extreme conditions (such as sterilization or rapid freezing), or they may need to be exposed to moisture or dust for a long time. In a production environment. This requires CIJ equipment to withstand the harshest environment, and the printed information must be durable and consistent with the product circulation cycle. The miniaturization of parts in many manufacturing industries also requires a new level of precision in label printing. As electronic products are becoming more and more miniaturized, the coding of products must be smaller and more precise. Even each component of the product needs to be coded separately, just as a mobile phone usually has 1,200 parts that need to be coded. For CIJ continuous inkjet coding technology, this is often a very difficult task. CIJ ink needs to be sprayed on fast-moving objects and ensure accuracy. 2. The globalized market has continuously increased the demand for traceability and anti-counterfeiting. Counterfeit products pose a huge risk to consumers' health and safety. Nielsen and ACMA (Indian Vehicle Parts Manufacturers Association) research shows that 20% of road traffic accidents in India are caused by counterfeit auto parts. The arbitrariness of counterfeit products has given birth to stricter product labeling legislation, and product traceability has increasingly become a necessary requirement. Relying on product identification enables products to be traced in complex and interrelated behaviors, from production to distribution to consumption. Facts have proved that the implementation of the identification system is an effective tool for manufacturers and retailers to implement product tracking and tracing. Product tracking and tracing solutions enable a single item or a batch of goods to be analyzed in operation, or be tracked through the entire supply chain through serialized identification. And the inconvenient identification will mean that it cannot be identified in the supply chain. The logo used for tracking and tracing must have an accurate location, precise inkjet, high readability, and can withstand the wear and tear caused by the environment or handling. 3. Consumers demand continuous improvement in the transparency and detail of product information. The transparency and detail of product information are also increasingly supported by laws. Now, many consumer products must display allergens and product sources, which requires more information to be printed clearly and legibly in a smaller print area. And more because of the legislation of product safety tracking and tracing, it is required that the product packaging be given a tracking and tracing code, such as the electronic code of medical products. According to a survey conducted by Planet Retail and GS1, 24% of shoppers use smartphones to scan product barcodes to obtain more product information. Clear information display and readable barcode printing require continuous inkjet printing. Technology is completed with high quality. 4. The readability requirements of product promotion codes are getting higher and higher. Shelf promotion is used more and more in brand marketing, usually as part of multi-channel marketing activities. This promotion method derives the use of a variable two-dimensional matrix code—QR code to encourage consumers to log in to marketing activities. Dedicated web page. The accuracy of such markings needs to reach the standard readable by smartphones, which has always been one of the challenges for continuous inkjet coding technology. Some of these challenges faced by CIJ technology are related to the continuous inkjet coding system itself, and sometimes caused by the selected ink. To achieve a certain print quality, it is necessary to adjust measures to local conditions. In some cases, the resolution of the logo is not high enough, and it may be that the device needs more ink drops to achieve the desired clarity. In some cases, the poor print quality may be due to poor ink droplets generated, resulting in splashed ink dots near the printed fonts, so-called satellite dots. In addition, if the logo is blurred or missing and difficult to recognize, it may also be caused by reasons such as failure to select the correct ink, poor ink quality, or low adhesion.
