Coding & marking on surfaces of extruded materials such as metal, plastic, and ceramic could mean printing on varying surface shapes.
And it could be challenging to obtain optimal ink adhesion and good code legibility considering the usually harsh production environments, where dust, heat, and humidity are present. So, you need a robust printer that is designed and built to withstand and operate in such conditions.
So, how can you be sure that a code & marking system can withstand such conditions? By simply looking for its IP Code, which classifies and rates the degree of protection provided by the mechanical casings and electrical enclosures against intrusion, dust, accidental contact, and water.
All RN Mark marking & coding printers have an IP code of 54. This means they are dust protected, and water splashing against their enclosure from any direction has no harmful effect.
