Printing in Harsh Environments with ICE Printers

3rd April, 2019

For certain products in the DIY industry, such as tile, cement and wood product manufacturing, the factory floor can be tough on production line equipment, particularly coding and marking machines.

The manufacturing environment can possess a number of challenges including:

  • Temperature extremes
  • Dust
  • Unevenly filled printing surfaces
  • High throughput speeds

With this in mind, it’s crucial to ensure that all machines and equipment can handle the heat and dirt when choosing the right coding equipment..

At Clearmark, part of the production process includes surveying the potential obstructions when installing one of our industry leading coding and marking machines. As well as testing the print quality on your desired substrate in our dedicated print lab to ensure our machines meet the standards required.

The ICE product range offers both thermal transfer printers and thermal inkjet printers that are designed to keep up with high throughput speeds; the Viper Thermal Inkjet Printer can comfortably support lines moving up to one metre per second, with the Zodiac Hawk Thermal Transfer Printer printing on up to 500 packs per minute.

Our bespoke system integrations can include elements which can help tackle some of the more common issues in harsh environments, whether it is for use in high-care factories, for dust protection, to prevent water ingress or to include safety guarding. Clearmark solutions can accommodate whatever is required for the printer to work in. We also offer custom designs that allow precise handling of the printers to allow for varying printing surfaces.

From the first meeting, our teams can work together on solving issues and ensuring you will be getting the best from your printer at all times.

To find out more about the ICE printer range for DIY and construction, as well as our bespoke system integration services, contact one of our coding experts on or telephone 01159 640144.
