Commercial and Industrial (C&I) applications cover a wide spectrum. Be it fast moving consumer goods, construction materials, or food production, marking and coding remains a necessary function to provide traceability for products in the market. Expiration dates, lot and manufacturing text, custom graphics, and point of sale barcodes simplify adherence to product safety regulations while providing valuable marketing data. In some cases, this coding is required by law.
By partnering with fluid manufacturers, Funai develops best-in-class technologies for high resolution printing on a wide variety of high-speed, high-throughput applications. With the launch of the Zion and Carmel solvent cartridges that jet inks up to ½” (12mm), applications formerly reserved for low-resolution Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) printers are now accessible to thermal ink printing. Bulk thermal delivery products ensure that uptime, total cost of ownership, and ease of use surpass rival print technologies, with the exception that thermal printing is truly high-resolution.
No two printing surfaces are created equal. Due to diverse packaging and coding needs, substrates vary from porous (absorbent) paper and cardboard, to non-porous plastics, metals, and glass. This diversity ensures that designing a single fluid to be compatible with all substrates is not possible.
Funai’s product line of cartridges span a wide range of material compatibilities. From water-based (aqueous) inks, to inks that include harsh solvents, Funai has a product to jet the perfect codes for the application. For products manufactured in regulated food and pharma facilities, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) products are also available. If the application substrate changes, adapting is as simple as changing the single use cartridge. No cleanup required.
