Inkjet systems are particularly suitable for printing on rubber and similar natural and synthetic materials, since these print contactless printing and the easy interchangeability of the inks used. Due to the different composition of rubber and plastics, special inks are usually required in practice that can adhere to the soft surfaces over the long term. In addition, products made of rubber and plastics often have dark base colors, which is why colored inks (white, yellow) must be used. Of course, UV inks also exist specifically for use on rubber.
For marking and labeling rubber, of course, special labels or laser marking are also suitable. The latter has the advantage of increased protection against counterfeiting. Labels, on the other hand, are almost always only suitable for large objects such as car tires, and of course the attached information is lost when the label is removed. Printing on rubber using inkjet techniques, on the other hand, has the advantages of being of being fast, simple and economical. Where the marking does not run the risk of being lost over time due to friction or external to be lost over time, this technique is the most advantageous and economical.
Typical examples of printing on rubber include cable sheathing or seals, but also of course floor coverings or generally rubber mats or sheets. In most cases, manufacturer and product markings have to be printed here such as serial numbers or information for logistical traceability.
Hand printers (inkjet guns) are ideal for marking large objects made of rubber or plastic quickly, effectively and inexpensively. The exact printing location can be freely selected or changed at short notice if required. Likewise, it can be used to spontaneously add inscriptions without having to completely adjust the previous production. It is well known that the inkjet process is extremely economical and cost-effective for monochrome (single-color) printing. It is always printed with single colors, which makes it easy to record consumption and plan consumption. Ink with the properties, such as waterproof, smudge-proof or even fluorescent, is nowadays comparatively the large number of manufacturers and suppliers, ink with different properties, such as waterproof, smudge-proof or fluorescent, is now available at comparatively low prices in the commercial sector. The typical problems from the home sector, such as dried ink or clogged nozzles, are rare in the industrial sector, since the printers are used practically every day. are practically in daily use.
