As a food production and processing company, you can't be more familiar with coding equipment. Every food that leaves the factory must have a clear and legible product code identification, including our common production date, shelf life, variable barcode, variable two Dimension code and other content types.
Below, I would like to share with you a few common tips when buying printers, so that new users or old users can better understand our needs and the existing equipment on the market in the new environment. Make more correct choices.
First, first clarify the type of printer.
The types of inkjet printer types have evolved over time and the development of technology, more and more specifications and types are dazzling, so the first thing before purchasing is not to inquire or go The comparison test is to make clear the brand and type of printer needed.
For example, small character inkjet printers, the total height of the printed content is between 1mm-13mm, the total number of printed content lines is between 1-4 lines, more suitable for coding on fast-moving consumer goods, common in supermarkets Products, such as cosmetics, food, beverages, and agricultural products, mostly use this type of machine.
For example, large-character inkjet printers have a printing content of about 50mm. They are divided into 9 and 16 points according to the number of printing points. In terms of ink dot size, they are significantly larger than traditional small-character inkjet printers. It realizes the coding of large cartons and outer packaging boxes, and is widely used in the cement, wine and food packaging industries.
For example, a micro-character printer has the same print content and lines as a small-character printer, but the nozzle aperture is smaller than that of a small character, reaching 40 microns, and it can print a minimum 0.7mm height content, supporting two-dimensional Code and variable data coding, can be positioned on PCB / FPC / SMT and other precision components for automatic coding.
For example, high-resolution inkjet printers have higher resolution of printed content, DPI can reach 300-600, which can achieve printing similar to the printing effect. The disadvantage is that its ink adhesion is worse than small characters, and it is not easy to print in some The long-term high adhesion is formed on the smooth material surface, and the advantage is that the scanning rate of the two-dimensional code is extremely high.
For example, UV inkjet printers perform high speed on roll film, labels and other products. Compared with traditional high-resolution inkjet printers, they are faster and also because they are equipped with UV curing lamps. Focusing on both effects, the disadvantage is that the overall equipment purchase price is higher and more suitable for printing plants.
For example, hand-held printers, which are very popular single-item printers in recent years, rely on ultra-low prices, compact shapes, flexible use methods, and more and more mature ink cartridge systems (HP technology). The adaptability has increased rapidly, and some printers have been replaced in some carton and food packaging applications.
For example, laser printers, under the trend of green environmental protection, have become the star of the entire sign industry like new energy vehicles. They have no pollution, no consumables, and no maintenance. Apart from the higher initial procurement costs, there are almost no obvious shortcomings. .
Second, the printer brand is clearly defined.
There are many brands of inkjet printers. How to choose has always been a problem. Each brand also has its strengths. If we can organically combine our needs with the strengths of the corresponding brands, we can save a lot of time and buy super Valued coding equipment.
》这篇文章中，潜利已经详细并且客观的进行了整个喷码机行业中各大品牌的标志性产品的横向评测，从性能到价格、从应用到特点，都有介绍，大家可以参考。 In the article " Which printer brand is good ", Qianli has carried out a detailed and objective horizontal evaluation of the iconic products of major brands in the entire printer industry, from performance to price and application to characteristics There are introductions, you can refer to.
Imported brands. Generally speaking, imported brands are still relatively strong at this stage. No matter in terms of comprehensive performance (effect, speed, stability, price), they are still higher than independent brands. With the introduction of new products, more brands Networking functions and remote control modules have also been added for greater competitiveness.
Independent brands, in the context of new manufacturing, face a very large market space, have more localization advantages, such as service, price, efficiency, etc., can take the initiative from several points that consumers are more concerned about Strike at the same time, do a continuous improvement in quality, and do a good job in the future industry layout.
Among the tips for choosing a brand, one is to look at the tone of the other's brand, such as what its strengths are, whether it is ink solvent saving, faster printing speed, or better stability, on the one hand, it depends on yourself The budget situation is selected according to the actual situation.
Third, shop around.
Tips for purchasing printers are more rational choices, so in the third point, we will mention and reiterate the need for everyone to shop around.
Only through comparison and evaluation can we find that our products are more in line with the ink and the coding effect of that material, and can be closer to our expectations.
Only through actual inspections and interviews can we understand the comprehensive strength and future development of our suppliers and whether they are suitable for long-term stable cooperation.
In the market, many manufacturers' advertisements are very good, but the actual effect is not as written. This is also what consumers must do as consumers, users, and production and processing enterprises. Better than three.
This trick is small, but it is very practical. It allows us to improve the efficiency of procurement, recognize the actual situation of the equipment, such as price, contract terms, customer cases, word of mouth and other multi-dimensional information, so that purchasers can make more scientific data-supported decisions .
