What sort of materials can be printed on?

Industrial-use inkjet printers can print on a wide variety of materials such as metals, resins, glass, packing films, cans, and PET bottles.

In order to print on products moving on production lines, quick-drying ink, which dries in approximately 1 second, is used.
This enables printing on materials other than just highly absorbent ones such as paper and cardboard. As such, these printers are used in a wide range of applications in the food, medical, cosmetic, electrical and electronic component, transportation, and metal industries.
