Industrial inkjet Ltd, we don’t just sell high quality inkjet modules, we
provide tailored solutions to match our customers’ requirements. Sounds easy
enough, but as with everything there is a lot more to this than meets the eye.
As we are often on the leading
edge of what is currently possible, our technical sales staff have to assess
the chances of success for any given project and where necessary guide the
customer along a path that maybe they hadn’t first thought of, but is much more
likely to succeed. Then our applications team test the substrates against our
ever-evolving range of inks, printheads, pre-treatments and coatings, to find
the right recipe for the customer.
this has been dialled in, it’s the turn of our team of experienced and talented
design engineers. They understand the inkjet design rules and good practice to
make a reliable, robust production solution, working closely with the customer
to understand exactly what is required.
is often the case that the inkjet system will be fitted to an existing machine,
the design will often include some mechanical adaptor or specialised
engineering to ensure it can be successfully integrated. To do this IIJ will
visit the intended site, assess and measure the location and then build this
into their design.
This could be anywhere in the
world, on a brand-new press or a combination of parts from older unused
equipment. It could be on a giant packaging machine, a multi station flexo
press or a small mailing conveyor, but following our company motto of “Making
Inkjet Work” we always strive to put every effort into making it a success.
IIJ often includes additional
system components such as UV curing, vision systems, splice avoidance systems and
software and these are also engineered in to meet the recipe requirements.
IIJ’s Engineering Team
Supervisor, Phillip Allen, commented: “working at IIJ could never be described
as dull. You never quite know what’s coming up next. But over the last couple
of years we’ve been working away in the background to develop a modular
approach that makes tackling these problems much more efficient”
Recently IIJ has developed an
OEM solution platform with a single compact control unit for print driver, ink
control and automatic maintenance. This is more easily integrated into enclosed
applications such as packaging systems, card printing or even small label
IIJ has a very wide range of
modular inkjet units available, so most projects can be handled by this systems
approach. However, sometimes the opportunity calls for something outside of
this range, and then a more bespoke solution is required.
Again, IIJ does not shy away from this challenge, and actually as a fast moving, customer lead company, some of the most successful “standard” products come out of projects requiring non-standard solutions.
