Precise ink supply for best print quality

Whether Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) or Drop on Demand (DOD) - our valves provide perfect ink management in front of the printhead

Your benefits:

  • Absence of particles in the valuable ink due to high quality manufacturing
  • Outstanding print image quality due to reliable and precise switching of the valves
  • Safe start-up as the complete solutions are tested in advance
  • Process reliability due to application know-how and project experience

Industrial inkjet printing is used on almost all surfaces, materials and forms. Razor-sharp texts printed at top speed or multi-line codes are a matter of course. High-contrast, durable codes should last throughout the product's life. They must be resistant to high temperatures during steam sterilization, freezing temperatures during shock freezing or moisture. Often, they must also be suitable for direct contact with food. For decades, Bürkert has been accompanying manufacturers of industrial printing presses as a leading provider of fluid management, so that every drop sits

Principles of Industrial Inkjet Printing

The right printing process for every requirement

Whether continuous ink jet (CIJ) or drop-on-demand (DOD) - always the right amount of ink in the perfect composition must reach the surface.

Continuous inkjet printing (CIJ)

The continuous inkjet process (CIJ) is used in industrial applications to apply the ‘best-by’ date to beverage cans or to decorate fi nished parts with a company name, thus protecting them against imitations. The non-contact CIJ process enables the permanent printing of information on almost all materials. There are also no limits to the possible geometries of products or packaging. It is fast and economical, both in terms of the initial outlay and ink consumption, can be operated with many types of ink and is easy to integrate into production lines.

Continuous Inkjet Scheme

Drop-on-demand (DOD)

In contrast to CIJ, the drop-on-demand process (DOD) can also be used for high resolution packaging printing. DOD works with a valve and plunger system or with thermal inkjet technology. Where CIJ produces a continuous flow of ink, DOD deposits droplets of ink only when and where they are
needed at frequencies of up to 15,000 Hz.

Products and systems for your ink supply

Our valves guarantee perfect ink management in front of the printhead and deliver outstanding print quality with the highest level of precision. It is possible to fl ush residue out of all the fluid channels: There are no blockages caused by dried ink particles. The valves are lightweight, compact, maintenance free and easy to replace. Moreover, we develop high-quality, bespoke systems that are more than a sum of their individual parts.
