Trident, An ITW Company: Printer & ink for non-porous packaging
Trident Industrial Inkjet’s 384JetNP printhead and AllWriteA5000 ink provide safe, high-quality, fast-drying performance for displaying graphics, alphanumerics and barcodes on non-porous packaging for food, beverage, wine, personal care, medical and nutraceutical applications.
The 384JetNP printhead produces readable barcodes (including code 128 and ITF-14 barcodes) with a print height of 2-in. (50mm) and printing speeds of 200-ft./min (1 meter/second). The alcohol-based, non-toxic AllWriteA5000 dries in less than 10 seconds unassisted and in less than 5 seconds with air assist (substrate dependent). Unlike wax-based print which can smear during production or when overheated during shipping or storage, the 384JetNP provides durable, quality print. Cost savings are generated by eliminating the need for labels.
