ESAB’s Ink Jet Marking System delivers high speed and flexibility in automated plate marking, marking characters and bar code in a single, high-speed pass without indexing the machine.
The Inkjet Marker can be mounted on a fixed tool holder or in a rotating tool holder to allow printing in any direction. Automatic Speed Control ensures accurate printing even during accel/decel. The system is ideal for printing text, lines and bar code on aluminum, stainless steel, and primed plate. The ink dries quickly and permanently, and marks can be painted to achieve a smooth, finished surface.
Two types of Inkjet markers are available:
• Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) allows bar coding and can be used for marking layout lines. Requires daily maintenance. Recommended for high production installations.
• Drop On Demand (DOD) produces larger characters at high speeds. Bar coding is not possible. A more robust operating principle, DOD markers do not require daily cleaning.
