Industrial Inkjet Printers
Engineered Printing Solutions offers a range of direct to substrate industrial inkjet printers (also sometimes referred to as “direct-to-shape” industrial inkjet printers). We also design and build industrial inkjet printers that are completely customized, using the latest in digital inkjet technology and automation to meet your specific application.
The benefits of direct-to-substrate 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.
