How a thermal inkjet printer works?
As is in the name, thermal inkjets, use electricity to produce thermal energy, AKA heat, to warm the ink and create a bubble of air within the ink cartridge. This displaces the ink and pushes it towards the edges of the cartridge where a number of nozzles are located, which help determine the print quality and print arrangement.
As the ink droplets are forced through these nozzles it contacts the material underneath and is transferred into the appropriate pattern, leaving a code or print. When the electrical charge is dropped from the cartridge, the air bubble dissipates and causes a vacuum that draws ink back so that it is ready for the next print. For this reason, inkjet printers are sometimes called bubble jet printers and offer a quick and relatively simple way of coding products.
We can print thousands of pouches per hour with virtually no rejects and with only one operator.
ICE printers are reliable and print high quality code, combined with low maintenance, they have really helped to improve our overall production efficiency.
Our operators find it easy to get to grips with the ICE printers through their simple-to-use touchscreen interface and consumable changeovers are also fast and simple with the Zodiac’s quick ribbon change and the Viper’s easy-change cartridge.
