The Hitachi industrial continuous inkjet printers are applicable to various production lines, ranging from printing on paper cartons and cardboard boxes to automatic printing on rolled paper and assembly parts.
Automatic Printing on Assembly Parts
This diagram shows an application of marking by the system on a circuit board. The system conducts accurate printing on the multi-row and multi-stage board by moving the head of the Hitachi continuous inkjet printer. This application is compatible for conducting automatic printing on assembly parts and printing a multiple range of products for small quantity production.
Automatic Printing on Cups by Movable Head
The diagram shows an example of an installation using a multi-row filling system to conduct automatic printing on cups by movable head. The Hitachi continuous inkjet printer head traverses the width distance of the production line and prints on each product sequentially, while the product feed system indexes products forward.
Automatic Printing on Rolled Paper
The diagram shows an example of adapting the system for paper manufacturing. The animation in the diagram shows how Hitachi continuous inkjet printers print on the side of rolled paper by moving the marking unit.
Pitch Print Marking on Steel Plate
This diagram shows an example of adapting the system for use in rolled steel plate manufacturing to conduct pitch lot and scratch marking on steel plates using Hitachi inkjet printer. This is a pitch print marking system compatible to a variable speed line ranging from a few meters to 500 meters per minute. A similar system is used for printing on colored steel plates.
Printing on Cardboard Boxes
This diagram shows an example of Hitachi inkjet printers printing on four-sides of a cardboard box. For non-contact coding, increased print distances can be set and quick drying ink can be used. This technique is specifically advantageous for printing on cardboard boxes or papers where the ink is not easily absorbed into the paper because of the coating.
Printing on Packages Subjected to Moisture
The diagram shows an example of Hitachi continuous inkjet printers printing on packages subjected to moisture. After meat & poultry goods are packaged, the packages have water droplets or condensation on them. Therefore, these packages are pretreated and dried by blowers and dryers before moving them to the printing station.
Printing on Paper Cartons
This diagram shows an example of Hitachi continuous inkjet printers printing on paper cartons for dairy and beverage industries. For tall products, such as cartons, the carton is gripped on the sides to prevent wobbling that could cause illegible print during coding process.
Printing on Small Packages
The diagram illustrates how Hitachi industrial continuous inkjet printers print and inspect each individual package for cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. The advanced technology of Hitachi inkjet printers makes printing on small packages an effortless and a highly precise job.
Printing on Wrapping Film
This diagram demonstrates Hitachi inkjet printers printing on wrapping film or a "Pillow Wrapper". The Rotary Encoder detects the speed fluctuations of the "Pillow Wrapper" and prints accurately, maintaining a constant character size and repeatable print location on the product.
