is a Mil-Std 130 UID Solutions Provider specializing
in direct product marking (DPM) technologies. We offer
a complete line of industrial ink jet marking systems
capable of meeting specific product marking requirements
for the aerospace, automotive, electronics, food, lumber,
home building products, medical and packaging industries.
Our turnkey solutions include standalone inkjet printers,
semi-automatic systems (where operators are required
to feed parts to the ink jet marking system), to fully
automatic systems (requiring no operator assistance).
are an experienced systems integration company with a
proven track record of successful ink jet system implementations.
Not all industrial ink jet printers are the same. Selecting
the right ink jet printer and ink combination from the various
industrial ink jet equipment manufacturers [Domino, HP, Imaje,
Videojet, Metronic, etc.] can be a difficult task if one is
not knowledgeable of the constant improvements in ink jet technology.
At JETEC we take pride in staying abreast of industry
trends and in qualifying a wide range of ink jet printers for
specific applications. Whether meeting specific aerospace manufacturing
specifications [Boeing, Sikorsky, Pratt & Whitney or
Lockheed Martin], Department of Defense Military Standards
or Wal-Mart marking requirements, JETEC can identify
the best printer and ink combination to ensure end customer
compliance. JETEC is a one-stop shop willing to
take responsibility for providing the best solution for your
application. Each account is assigned a sales account representative.
will use their expertise and support team to identify the right
inkjet printer, bar code scanner, 2D code reader, mark verification
hardware and system software to configure a solution best suited
for your application.
jet is a non-contact, non-abrasive alternative to product marking.
There are two primary ink jet technologies: Drop-on-Demand
(DOD) and Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ). Drop-on-Demand encompasses
valve jet or piezo-electric technology. Most office printers
feature DOD technology. In the industrial marking arena, DOD
technology is used for marking cardboard boxes and other porous
surfaces. A major benefit of DOD technology is its ability to
print high resolution (> 300 dpi) alphanumeric, graphics,
bar codes and 2D codes. Disadvantages of DOD systems include:
limitations in throw distance, inability to accommodate solvent-based
inks and frequent clogging of ink orifices. Manufacturers of
DOD based industrial ink jet printers are constantly working
to eliminate these limitations. Continuous ink jet printers
are widely used within the industrial marking arena. They provide
excellent throw distance, in many cases up to 0.500 away
from the target item. Print heights ranging from 0.030"
to 0.500 in a single pass, depending on ink jet printer
selected, are achievable. CIJ inkjet printers can be used to
mark flat, curved and irregular shaped surfaces. The primary
disadvantage of CIJ ink jet printers is their print resolution.
JETEC classifies CIJ printers, from the various ink jet
equipment suppliers, in three categories (comparisons are
based on printers with a maximum 24-dot tall capability. Assumes
each dot is touching to minimize dot-matrix appearance.):
||Nozzle Orifice Size
||Smallest Character Height
||Tallest Character Height
||60 70 micron
||50 55 micron
||36 42 micron
can provide either air-assist or airless industrial ink
jet printers capable of printing 1 6 lines of print
in a single print cycle. Furthermore, through the use of
Software industrial ink jet printers can
print standard Windows fonts, custom fonts, ANSI grade C
or better bar codes and AIM compliant square or rectangular
2D codes. IMS2701 also supports the control of multi-vendor
ink jet printers from a single computer or network.
offers a wide range of industrial ink jet inks. Our recommended
inks provide excellent adhesion to gold plated, nickel-plated
kovar, ceramics, PCBs, plastic, metals [stainless steel, aluminum,
etc.], glass, vinyl, wood, rubber and paper. Most ink jet inks
dry immediately to the touch eliminating potential smearing
or print damage. Alcohol wipe resistant and military marking
permanent inks are available. Not all ink jet equipment suppliers
have inks to meet the various industry specific requirements.

application regardless of printer.
ink jet inks are excellent for bar coding, 2D coding, serialization,
date coding and product branding. Using invisible UV or NIRF
inks, combined with new data encryption techniques, an ink jet
process can offer robust security and covert marking
alternatives. JETEC offers inks for most industrial ink
jet printers, both CIJ and DOD.
wide range of standard Ink Jet Marking Systems
is available. Select from fixed mount conveyor systems
to workstation configurations. Most JETEC systems
are delivered with our IMS Industrial Marking Application
Software. This Windows based software provides on-line
fault monitoring, a multiple level security access password
feature and the ability to create and store marking files
using pull down menus.
Ink Jet Marking Systems
offers numerous standard, turnkey, inkjet system configurations.
