Aluminum foil is still very popular today as a packaging material - even though it is increasingly being viewed aspects, it is increasingly being viewed more critically. For many applications in industry, but also for use in the home kitchen, aluminum foil simply offers Aluminum foil simply offers too good properties at an economical price. Aluminum foil reliably protects against contact with oxygen, with Light, germs or moisture - in other words, from almost anything that can "harm" food. It reflects more than 90% of radiant heat and thus keeps food food not only fresh, but also warm. In the construction industry, aluminum foil is is therefore also used as a reliable insulation or vapor barrier, as well as for insulating cables. The modern pharmaceutical industry would be unthinkable without blister packs made of aluminum foil. hardly conceivable.
Printing on aluminum foil is therefore an essential part of the manufacturing and processing process in many areas (food industry, pharmaceuticals,...). Manufacturing and processing process. For example, expiration date (BBD), batch numbers or other product information can be printed on aluminum foil. This is usually done by marking systems integrated into the manufacturing conveyor belts. Marking systems based on TIJ, but for smaller production volumes or very dynamic print data, portable hand printers are increasingly used.
Handheld inkjet guns are very well suited, due to their design, when it comes to
quickly and cost-effectively print small to medium quantities of aluminum foil wrapped products or aluminum components.
The very heterogeneous irregularity of the surface, as occurs with packaged food products, can be easily can be easily compensated for.
In contrast to pre-printed packaging, the exact output location of the print data can also be flexibly changed as required. be changed.
A hand printer reliably supports highly variable data (production date, shelf life, delivery addresses, etc.), as is often the case in this
sector. For building materials (aluminum pipes, large-area aluminum insulation), the handheld printer can also print on curved and curved
surfaces without any problems.
Inkjet technology (Thermal Inkjet - TIJ) is also very economical for monochrome printing, as is sufficient for product information is sufficient. Also ink with properties and qualities, such as waterproof, smudge-proof and fluorescent, can be had quite cheaply today. quite inexpensive to have.
For printing on aluminum and aluminum foil in small to medium-sized batches, there is hardly a better solution at the moment than an inkjet hand printer.
The NasaJet® hand printers are exactly the right choice if you frequently need to print aluminum foil. In production or even in the warehouse the small hand printers can quickly and economically provide anything with any data. Barcodes, QR codes, sequential numbers and dates are no problem. However, printing is not limited to aluminum foil - metal, wood, cardboard or plastic can be labeled quickly and easily, allowing multiple operations (product labeling, repackaging, shipping pallet) to be performed with a single can be carried out with a single device. Purchase prices are lower than conventional inkjet marking systems lower. However, the range of functions is in no way inferior to these competing products.
For large production volumes and for integration into existing production lines, we have also developed the NasaJet® NJ-2000 a professional and yet yet economical marking system. Separate control and printing units of the NasaJet® NJ-2000 allow quick and easy installation on existing equipment with support for a maximum print speed of up to 60m per minute. The print unit can be flexibly positioned. The control unit with the built-in touch screen allows complex print templates to be quickly created in the unit itself. The printing of aluminum and aluminum foil with necessary information such as expiration date, serial numbers or barcodes is thus possible in a fully automated manner. The labeling costs remain economical.
In addition to the right printer, of course, you also need a high-quality ink for printing on aluminum foil, if you want to take advantage of this technology. We trust the excellent products of the Vietnamese manufacturer Mylan. In particular for printing on Mylan's range of inks is particularly suitable for printing on aluminum foil. Razor-sharp prints and fast drying times make Mylan inks a reliable choice. Mylan inks a reliable companion in industrial labeling and marking.
We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about our NasaJet® systems and industrial grade ink from Mylan.
