Continuous productivity

Coding and marking of extrusion parts (wires, cables, tubes and pipes)

Speed is the defining issue in the cable industry. Since line speeds are often slowed down by the coding process, printers must not only deliver high-legibility, they must do so at very high speed. For pipe coding and cable marking, the option to print at small font heights (microprints) is important, as is a wide selection of fast drying inks for various colored backgrounds and different materials like PE and PVC. Transfer-proof inks must also be used to prevent stamping or ‘ghost printing’ after the cable is wound, and cable manufacturers may also need the coder to automatically print meter markings or feet markings.

Why Leibinger?

LEIBINGER inkjet printers specialize in imprinting and print monitoring for cables, pipes and wires. We offer two specialist wire printers for cable coding: the JET Rapid Wire, which prints particularly small font sizes (0.8 mm) at up to 1000 m/min, and the JET3 Rapid Wire PI, which is a variant designed to use pigmented inks to provide contrast on dark cables, such as printer wires.

As the only true specialist in the wire industry, we offer other specialist features, such as the "Speed Dependent Output" function to control plasma pretreating (or corona pre-handling) based on the production speed. If the speed of the extrusion molding line drops below a specified value, the printer automatically switches off the plasma unit until the line returns to a higher production speed.

Leibinger printers are perfect for coding onto extrusion parts (wires, cables, tubes and pipes):

  • Sealtronic for fast start-up and high productivity
  • Suitable for all types of cable and wire coatings and injection molding parts
  • Micro-font printing down to 0.8 mm
  • Pigmented inks for contrast on dark surfaces
  • Suitable for high-speed production
  • Enables full traceability
  • Easy to use, easy to integrate into specialist cable production lines

Your industry

Aerospace

Taking off at maximum speed

Coding and marking for aerospace

In the aviation and aerospace industry, accurate information enabling traceability needs to be permanently applied to all safety-relevant individual components, even though they come from different suppliers around the world. This is done by using a barcode or data matrix code containing very specific encrypted data. Integrating such marking requirements into the production process can be difficult given stringent customer specifications and tight production deadlines.

Automotive

Life in the fast lane

Coding and marking for automotive

In the automotive industry, thousands of individual parts made of various shapes, sizes and materials are installed by several different suppliers. This leads to highly complex automated production processes, in which the marking of each part with traceability information is a small but essential stage. Leibinger continuous inkjet printers are a reliable part of high-speed production lines around the world, where our high reliability and unique Sealtronic print head technology ensure minimum disruption and maximum productivity.

Building, construction and garden

Built for the great outdoors

Coding and marking for building, construction and garden

Products and materials used in the building, construction and garden industries need to be built to last – and the same applies to the markings used to provide traceability and regulatory compliance. Many materials in use demand a coding and marking solution that is robust, flexible and hard-working.

Electronic and electrical devices

Small but mighty

Coding and marking for electronics and electrical devices

In the electrical and electronics sectors, parts such as printed circuit boards (PCBs), microcontrollers, light sources, connectors, glass fibers, diodes, displays and cables often need to be marked and coded. This is done in order to prevent product piracy, comply with regulations and enable traceability throughout the supply chain. Since these parts are often dark in color, an additional challenge is to ensure that codes are legible, even though extremely small font sizes are necessary on smaller items.

Medical technology

Just what the doctor ordered

Coding and marking for medical technology

The packaging of medical products – and the products themselves – requires high-quality marking of variable data. The focus is on legibility and contrast, which is indispensable for traceability and compliance with legal requirements. At the same time, competitive pressure in the medtech market means that manufacturers must maximize production line speed.
