Thermal Inkjet Printers (TIJ) are becoming the code printer of choice for many manufacturers. Offering an exceptional combination of performance and value, thermal inkjet printers, easily put coding and marking equipment within the reach of manufacturers of all sizes.
For many production applications, TIJ printers offer a superior alternative to Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) Printers, which have been a popular choice for printing barcodes, data matrix, and variable data on a broad range of products.
So, here are some of the advantages of Thermal Inkjet Printers compared to Continuous Inkjet Printers.
1. Capital Cost – Thermal inkjet printers are considerably less expensive than CIJ printers. Generally, you can expect to pay anywhere from 5 times the price of a TIJ printer, when purchasing a CIJ printer.
4. Uptime – Thermal inkjet printers are reliable printers that require no maintenance, which means no production bottlenecks or line stoppages. Comparatively, CIJs could require lengthy regular maintenance periods resulting in production downtime and delays.
