Coding Systems for Identification, Information and Traceability on Industrial and Building Products

Code Tech’s inkjet printing is used widely in industrial and building materials applications.

Our printers add variable text, graphics and barcodes to wire, cable, wood, drywall/gypsum, PVC, metal pipes and many more products.

This is made possible by our portfolio of thermal inkjet (TIJ) inks that are capable of producing excellent print quality on just about any material.

White and yellow inks are available for contrast on dark-colored materials, and bulk ink supply systems can be used for high-volume products.

Common challenges include:

  • Needing durable coding equipment to operate in environments that are often dusty, damp or have large temperature swings.
  • Coding equipment must perform reliably at high speeds, especially on extrusion lines and similar processes.
  • Ensuring multiple production codes are always in sync when running multiple lines to produce your product.

Applications Include:
  • Printing production codes on sheetrock/gypsum at production speeds.
  • Adding serialization codes to enhance traceability.
  • Operating coders in areas with tough environments, such as dusty or wet, with a large range of humidity and temperature.
  • Adding traceability codes to automotive and aerospace components.
  • Date and traceability coding.
  • Integration of printers with our customer's production equipment.
  • Replacing legacy coding equipment that is causing excessive downtime and being expensive to repair.
  • High-quality traceability barcodes, to meet industry and ISO standards.

Our continued innovation and expertise, as well as an understanding of the important issues manufacturers face, allow us to offer products and solutions to meet your specific needs.
