Marking and coding solutions are many and varied in the packing space, so why not begin this review of innovations shown at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2023 with a look at what’s new in marking and coding? We begin with ink-jet printing, where innovations aimed at simplifying maintenance—in some cases even eliminating maintenance altogether—is clearly a trend.

Hi-speed industrial ink-jet printer manufacturer Leibinger took advantage of PACK EXPO Las Vegas to unveil IQJET. Described as a whole new platform, Leibinger on its Web site succinctly blasts out its fundamental value proposition this way: “Plug & Print. 5 years no maintenance. The first intelligent coding and marking system.”

According to Volker Teufel, head of product development at Leibinger, this new platform is based on new technology that leverages more intelligent systems. One example is the new HMI, which can be operated a lot like a smart phone. It makes it easy to see what your tasks are, what you are currently printing, the status of the printer, the status of the ink reservoir, and so on.
