Continuous inkjet printers

This method is commonly used with industrial-use printers.
Industrial inkjet printers are capable of printing on a wide variety of targets such as metals, resins, and glasses. In addition to being able to print on materials such as paper and cardboard, the quick-drying ink enables printing on materials that do not absorb ink well. Continuous inkjet printers are used in a wide range of industries such as food, medicine, cosmetics, electronics, semiconductor, automotive, and metals.

Food, medicine, and cosmetics

For food safety, it is necessary to accurately print manufacturing dates and best before dates.
To prevent printing mistakes and non-printed sections, there has been an increase in the installation of inspection systems using image sensors and the implementation of similar countermeasures.
