Have you ever installed baseboards or other narrow wooden profiles? Then you have certainly noticed the markings on the back: Information on make, batch, notes on the direction of installation etc. All in all, very important information that can prove even to a layman that he has exactly the article in his hand that he ordered. But if you take a closer look at such a wooden strip, you will notice that the space to be printed is very small. Because nobody wants to have printed visible surfaces. With the mobile as well as stationary DOD marking systems, as we presented them in our last two blog entries, you won’t get anywhere here. Even labels or stickers are rather a hindrance for later use.
How good that there are also small character systems for product marking. This makes precise co-designs with print image heights between 0.8mm and 14mm child’s play. Thanks to the CIJ process, all the necessary information and even graphics and codes are printed onto your product without contact. And at speeds of up to 500 meters per minute! In addition, our modern marking systems do not require an external compressed air supply and have a very economical consumption.
