Unveiling the CM 730 Continuous Inkjet Printer: A Comprehensive Overview


A Continuous Inkjet Printer (CIJ) is a type of non-contact printing technology used for marking and coding products in various industries. CIJ printers are particularly popular in manufacturing and packaging processes where quick and high-speed printing is required.

Let us look at how a Continuous Inkjet Printer works.

CIJ printers use a continuous stream of ink droplets that are ejected from a printhead nozzle. The ink is expelled through a small orifice in the printhead. The ink droplets pass through an electric field, where they are charged. The charged droplets then pass through an electrostatic deflection field that adjusts their trajectory based on the desired printing pattern. A piezoelectric crystal or other means is used to control the size of the droplets, allowing for precise control over the printing process.

The ink used in CIJ printing is a quick-drying solvent-based ink, to ensure that the printed content dries instantly upon contact with the substrate.

CIJ printers are used for coding and marking products with information such as expiration dates, lot numbers, barcodes, and other variable data.
