Non-Toxic Inkjet Printers and Ink Cartridges for the Food & Beverage Industry

Code Tech’s versatile inkjet printers and non-contact solvent inks bring ease of use and sustainability to the food industry.

Our printers require almost zero maintenance and produce excellent print quality - making them a perfect upgrade from legacy printers that are expensive to keep running and create a lot of downtime.

Our single-use ink cartridges yield up to 700,000 codes per cartridge and are disposable for no-mess, maintenance-free, consistent print quality. If you need to change color, it's as simple as swapping to a different color cartridge, which takes a few seconds.
