Inkjet printing is a coding method that creates either a dot matrix or digital image by propelling droplets of ink onto paper, plastic, or other substrates. Inkjet coders are used for many coding and printing operations. Traditionally there have been two basic types of inkjet coders; small character ink jet coders used for marking bottles with expiration dates and/or batch or lot numbers and large character inkjet printers generally used to print product information on corrugated shippers.
In recent years, Hewlett Packard has entered the industrial thermal ink jet market with their desktop cartridge technology. These products offer superior ease of operation and quality of print combined with industrial durability. These reliable jet printers are a low cost option for porous, high resolution marking/coding applications.
SPS also utilizes laser technology for small character coding applications in packaged goods and industrial products. In many cases, laser coding can be a cost effective alternative to inkjet. It is reliable and easy to use with a low cost of ownership. It uses no consumables so there is no mess and there are no solvent emissions..
