Technologies to code on extruded plastics

High contrast, 100% permanent and readable codes, even on the most difficult plastic substrates

Your challenges

Extruded plastic takes many different forms, including pipes, wires, tubing, and cable insulation. Emerging trends show a preference for anti-microbial plastic pipe, as well as eco-friendly ABS and PE plastics. Traceability is vital in this industry, and codes have to remain 100% readable, even in demanding environments or on difficult substrates such as PVC, PE LSZH, or PP plastics.

Our offer

Our 9450 E continuous inkjet printer, built specifically for the wire and cable industry, delivers cost-effective, high-speed, and high contrast inkjet printing, with no ink migration, on a wide range of substrates and diameters. A variety of inks are available for use with the model, including a unique white ink often used for colored or black cables.

Another choice is our SmartLase laser portfolio. The SmartLase C350 and SmartLase F500 coders reduce operating expenses thanks to ink-free operations and create permanent codes that do not fade or rub off over time. SmartLase coders are available with CO2 and fiber ranges, as well as a choice of four wavelengths and a multitude of lenses, scan heads and ingress protection (IP) options.
