Whitepaper: How to choose the best industrial inkjet printer

Requirements for industrial marking and coding increase from year to year, due to new laws and business needs. Because of their advantages in speed, efficiency and quality, professional inkjet printers have become indispensable in many factories. However, printing conditions in different industries can be quite challenging. For this reason, many specialized solutions are available on the market. So, which one is the right one for you?

The answer is… it depends. There is no one-size-fits-all inkjet printer. Every system has certain benefits or downsides depending on the application. To make decisions easier for you, we have created a free, downloadable whitepaper that covers cost-effective solutions for the most common, demanding applications in different industries:

How to choose the right inkjet printer for demanding applications
Weber Marking Systems whitepaper coverThere are three main criteria for selecting the right inkjet printer:

  • Print volume: How much do you print? How much ink is consumed?
  • Production time: Is it a continuous production? Are there frequent downtimes?
  • Printing environment: Will the inkjet printer need to withstand harsh conditions caused by dust, high humidity or wet cleaning?

Meeting different coding requirements

It is important to consider all factors when looking for the perfect solution. This should not only include the facility’s environment itself but also specific industry regulations that need to be applied (e.g. in the food industry), as well as the planned coding process within the production and packaging line.

High ink consumption and 24/7 production

One single ink cartridge can only produce a limited number of prints depending on the content, print resolution and ink type. From experience, high ink consumption and non-stop production are usually two of the biggest concerns for manufacturing companies.

Long downtimes and difficult-to-access systems

The so-called decap time (or open time) of inkjet printers refers to the period of time that nozzles can be idle and uncovered before they dry out and fail to print reliably. It depends mainly on the type of ink. The premature replacement of cartridges causes higher costs and waste of material.

Printing in humid and dusty environments

Each production environment is unique. Conditions for marking systems are not always optimal. Dusty and dirty environments, such as those found in the heavy or wood industries, may clog electronic devices. Humid environments or wet-cleaned areas in the food industry are equally challenging.
