Industrial Inkjet Printers

Saw blades marked on a singlepass inkjet printer

Engineered Printing Solutions offers a range of direct-to-shape industrial inkjet printers. We also design and build coding and marking printers that are completely customized, using the latest in digital inkjet technology and automation to meet your specific application.

The benefits of direct-to-object inkjet printing are several.  With no cups or plates to fill with ink, per-impression materials costs are much lower than with traditional contact forms of product-marking.  With art stored digitally, there are no clichés to prepare and warehouse, which not only reduces costs but also means that changeovers can be near-instantaneous.  (The fact that industrial inkjet printers use a four-color process—cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, with frequent use of white and varnish as well—further speeds changeovers, as there are often no spot colors to change.) Finally, by printing direct-to-substrate with industrial inkjet printing equipment, the additional tasks of inventorying, printing, and applying labels are eliminated, leading to further cost-savings.

Today’s consumers demand mass-customization, and the quick changeovers and short-run capabilities of industrial inkjet printers make that possible.  For some industrial inkjet print applications, the ability of high-speed inkjet production printers to print variable data on products or packaging means that high-speed batch-coding is possible.  In a world where consumers demand cradle-to-grave traceability, industrial inkjet printers enable manufacturers to provide just that.

Our Industrial Printing Equipment:

Singlepass Inkjet Printers
Singlepass Inkjet Printers
Singlepass inkjet printers make only one pass with the printheads in order to print on an object. This can result in the ability to print a great number of parts per hour. In order to increase the print area size you either have to add more printheads or else “stitch” together the image in a step-wise process. By using robotic automation, singlepass printers can accommodate unusually-shaped objects. We also design and build machines that are completely customized, using the latest in digital inkjet technology and automation to meet your needs.

Flatbed Inkjet Printers
Flatbed printers are also known as scanning printers because the printheads move back and forth while building the specified resolution across the object to be printed. Color is built up through repeated passes over the object. With a large platen, many parts can be printed at the same time, all with the same or different images. Variable-data printing is also available, enabling batch-coding or mass-customization.

Cylindrical Inkjet Printers
Cylindrical Inkjet Printers
Cylindrical inkjet printing is the latest development in direct-to-object printing. By printing directly on the object without the need for a wrap or adhesive label, cylindrical inkjet printers can save you time and money by eliminating the need for the extra step of actually applying the label to the object.
