Metal Parts Printing
Machined or formed metal parts often require a range of codes to be applied to them for internal or external traceability. Working with a partner that offers a wide variety of metal marking and coding solutions, together with integration expertise, can be beneficial when specifying the optimal solutions for a range of material properties and application challenges.
Laser or Inkjet for Printing on Metals?
Laser printing and continuous inkjet (CIJ) remain two common marking technologies for metal components. Videojet’s laser wavelength options provide great flexibility in matching the given material – whether printing on aluminium, steel or zinc. CIJ printers offer easy integration for printing on a wide variety of metals and are an ideal solution to print on curved or indented surfaces. Videojet also offers MIL SPEC inks to meet specific military and aerospace requirements.
Videojet has inkjet and laser marking machines capable of printing high-quality codes onto most common industrial metals – including stainless steel, anodised aluminium, iron and nickel.
