Inks For Lumber Marking TIJ Systems
Kao Collins offers various inkjet inks that can be used with thermal inkjet lumber marking systems. TIJ printers offer a low cost of ownership and ease of operation, including standardized print cartridges with an integrated printhead and ink supply.
We supply water-based inks, solvent-based inks, and other specialty inks for HP Specialty Printing Systems (SPS) and Funai printing systems.
Advantages of TIJ Inks for Marking and Coding Lumber
TIJ technology makes printing lumber faster and cleaner since the ink cartridge incorporates the printhead. Changing color or ink formulations when printing on different lumber materials is as easy as swapping a cartridge.
Kao Collins uses only factory-new cartridges, providing greater confidence for the demanding printing needs of the lumber industry.
