Coding on Construction and Building Materials

Coding on construction and building materials is vital for regulatory compliance, helping companies manage products and materials to meet necessary standards.

KEYENCE's continuous inkjet printers offer high-speed printing without compromising on quality, creating unique codes on a wide range of materials, including steel, cement, frames, boards, and pipes.

Date Coding and Marking on Construction and Building Materials

Steel Materials

KEYENCE's MK-G Series provides accurate and clear date coding, thanks to self-diagnostic capabilities, ensuring consistent performance and avoiding confusion due to print errors or smudges.

Cement Containers

Cement containers are essential for bulk transport/storage, which makes coding and marking critical. KEYENCE CIJs print head and controller can withstand harsh environments, including dust and moisture, while printing reliable, high-quality date/lot numbers.

Interior Frames

Mark materials with manufacturing dates, lot numbers, and safety codes. Our high-quality, legible codes ensure identification and traceability for issues or recalls.

Heat-Resistant Boards

Heat-resistant boards are vital for high-temperature industrial settings, needing robust performance and durable codes for clear identification. KEYENCE CIJs, with advanced sensor technology, ensure the highest print quality, maximum readability, for consistent regulatory compliance.

Extrusion Molding Pipes

Extrusion molding pipes need to withstand extreme temperatures, pressure, and other harsh conditions. KEYENCE's CIJ’s print heads and controllers allow for uninterrupted performance even during exposure to dust and moisture, resulting in reduced rework and scrap of expensive materials.

Challenges in Coding and Marking for Construction and Building Materials

Maintenance and Troubleshooting (Specialized Knowledge)

Traditional inkjet printers often require specialized knowledge, and limited technician availability may lead to downtime and delays. KEYENCE CIJ's self-diagnostic functions and intuitive user interface save time and resources while ensuring consistent and accurate marking.

Product Traceability and Compliance with Safety Regulations

Product traceability is crucial for safety compliance. Our CIJ printers print batch numbers, expiry dates, and vital info, ensuring traceability from production to distribution. The MK-G Series can be easily linked to KEYENCE print inspection device to ensure products are not released if printed details are missing or incorrect, providing an extra layer of reliability to prevent costly rework, scrap and recalls.

Working in Harsh Environments

Construction environments challenge coding equipment with dust, extreme temperatures, and moisture, causing inaccurate codes. With KEYENCE CIJs, both the controller and print head are IP55 rated for better overall resistance to dust and liquid. The print head and console are MIL drop-tested for durability.

CIJ for Construction and Building Materials

KEYENCE CIJs are the perfect solution for coding on construction and building materials. It offers enhanced self-diagnostic capabilities that automatically perform maintenance and troubleshooting tasks. This reduces downtime and ensures smooth operations at all times. The user-friendly interface makes it easy to use for anyone on the team, while the remote monitoring feature allows for efficient management of multiple sites at once.
