Marking and coding of wood

  • Wood

Most types of wood tend to have very absorbent qualities. This has to be taken into account for wood marking and coding. LEIBINGER provides inks for its small character inkjet printer that are easily legible on wood. Thus, you can label wood products with an inkjet printer without direct contact and during ongoing production! LEIBINGER camera systems also handle the monitoring of printed data.

Typical markings

  • Variable characters and text
  • Batch numbers/lot numbers
  • Company logos
  • 1D and 2D codes like barcodes, DataMatrix codes, QR codes, etc.
  • Graphics


  • Wood
  • Lumber/wood composite
  • Particle board
  • Plywood

  • Floor skirting boards
  • Types of wood for making furniture
  • Packaging

Examples of typical applications

  • Marking in the construction trade
  • Labeling furniture/furniture parts
  • Marking in dusty production environments
  • Inks for very absorbent substrates
  • Traceability/track and trace/identification

Typical print monitoring tasks

  • Print monitoring/verification/image processing of various printouts in a partially dusty production environment
  • Controlling rejection separators/pushers
  • Reliable monitoring of inkjet fonts (printouts of small character inkjet printers)
