New ink for TIJ printers
Domino Printing Sciences has launched a new ink for use in its range of G-Series thermal ink jet printers (TIJ) printers. The BK118 ink extends TIJ printing capabilities to effectively code onto challenging materials, such as plastics, films, foils and coated cartons.
“By using the benefits of a revised cartridge that is specifically designed for solvent based inks, we offer a TIJ ink that delivers consistent, durable codes with great character sharpness and high contrast,” says Phil Parkins, TIJ product manager at Domino Printing Sciences. “Code quality and ink adhesion make BK118 ideal for high speed coding onto wrappers, sachets and flexible films.”
The BK118 and the multi head capability of the G-Series’ TIJ printers promise an effective combination for coding onto non-porous primary packaging and glossy outer case packaging. With the ability to run up to four print heads from a single controller, one head can print onto primary packaging while another prints onto the outer case packaging simultaneously.
