Printing that meets industrial environment conditions and requirements
The ink must be 100% adapted to the application’s needs and constraints for identification labels to be readable. Appropriate labeling and clear messages prevent injuries and improve efficiency in the workplace.
ARMOR-IIMAK inks meet the professional standards of the industry, which ensures that the marking is legally and technically compliant. The criteria and laws governing industrial labeling vary depending on the country and continent. Here is an overview of some of the well-known standards in this industry:
- ANSI B11 series
- Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
- CE marking
Durability and readability are the key elements when dealing with industrial printing. Examples of constraints faced by this industry include:
- Chemicals and cleaning products
- Very high temperatures
- Spraying of molten elements
- Hazardous Products
- High speeds
An industrial label is systematically linked to a piece of equipment. The latter’s identification must be clear and efficient and offer impeccable legibility. In addition, the safety of people who handle, use or interact with this equipment is a significant issue.
Often in self-adhesive format, these labels have several objectives: traceability, safety, identification, information, etc. By delivering a printing resistant to hostile industrial environments, Thermal transfer technology is the most appropriate printing solution for industrial labeling. In addition, the sharpness and permanence of its print make it possible to meet all the needs and performance constraints required by this sector.
