What is a preferred technology for date coding milk jugs?
Dairy is a challenging production environment. High throughput and low margins require coding solutions that are robust, reliable and guaranteed to work well in facilities where condensation and aggressive wash-down can have an impact - and, where safety is paramount.
Continuous inkjet printers
Industrial inkjet printers from Domino are well proven and trusted by the world's biggest dairy producers. Where date and traceability codes are needed, Continuous Inkjets like our Ax-Series industrial CIJ have been deployed.
Our Ax550i prints directly on plastic milk bottles with speed, clarity and consistency, using quick-dry inks that are never disturbed by over-sleeves and secondary packaging. They also print directly to oversleeves without compromise, despite damp, cold production conditions and effects of condensation. Codes remain stable throughout the shelf life of the product.
A next generation printer, the Ax CIJ is lightweight and easy to install wherever it's needed on the line. Designed to reduce solvent use, it dramatically cuts production costs and waste. Capable of printing as many lines of text as needed, the new interface allows for easy customization.
