The ink in LEIBINGER inkjet printers does not dry out

LEIBINGER at Interpack with camera systems and small character inkjet printers

(PresseBox) (Tuttlingen, Germany, ) Marking & coding specialist Paul LEIBINGER is presenting its series JET3 and JET2neo of industrial inkjet printers with integrated automated "Sealtronic" nozzle seal at the Interpack trade show in Düsseldorf. This unique technology prevents the ink in a printer from drying out even during prolonged breaks in production. Visitors to the Interpack trade show can see how "Sealtronic" works in live demonstrations from May 8th to 14th, 2014 in Hall 5 at Booth E24. The booth will also feature information on the LEIBINGER camera system LKS 5, which checks printouts and creates job logs.

The automated "Sealtronic" nozzle seal allows Paul Leibinger GmbH & Co. KG to meet the highest standards of reliability for industrial inkjet printers. Using the Sealtronic system, the nozzle and gutter form an airtight circuit whenever the printer is not being used for coding. No ink can leak out of the circuit and no air can get in. This keeps the ink fluid at all times - just like a sealed paint can - and the CIJ printer is always ready to go. Just a single push of a button starts the LEIBINGER printer, and it is ready to print in less than a minute. All LEIBINGER small character inkjet printers from the JET3 and JET2neo series come standard with the automated "Sealtronic" nozzle seal! The LEIBINGER JET3pro is particularly well-suited for the food and beverage industry. The printer features the IP65 protection class, making it ideal for wet or dusty production environments.

In addition to the "Sealtronic" nozzle seal, professional visitors at the LEIBINGER trade show booth can learn about the specific benefits inkjet printers can provide for the packaging industry. LEIBINGER recently brought four new inks onto the market for its inkjet printers: Two MEK-free inks in red and blue and two inks that meet the strict requirements of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The first FDA-compliant ink is specifically suited for coding eggshells. The second FDA-compliant ink can be used for coding foodstuffs directly, e.g. for promotional activities. The ink is also ideal for applications that contact foodstuffs directly, such as coding the insides of food packaging. Consuming the ink is completely safe.

LEIBINGER inkjet coders can print on any conceivable products such as carton, plastic, metal or glass and materials, no matter whether the surfaces are flat, rough or convex. Imprinting is based on the continuous inkjet principle: No contact during ongoing production while using quick-drying inks. Sample patterns and patterns brought by customers will be printed at the trade show booth.

The LEIBINGER camera system LKS 5 is a versatile verification system for a multitude of uses and is also being presented at the Interpack trade show. The LKS 5 reads and checks both fixed and variable data, text segments and barcodes. In addition, variable data can be calibrated using a database. Job logging, which can serve as verification during production, is available as an option. For example, the LKS 5 can detect register deviations or changes in parallelism based on preset reference values. The system also checks the presence and precise positioning of dispensed products like cards or samples. The LEIBINGER controller is used to reliably activate ejection devices. The LKS 5 image processing system excels at checking inkjet labels with the utmost reliability. Close cooperation by Research and Development within the company while further developing LEIBINGER camera systems and inkjet printers makes this possible.
