Extruded Material Printers


Coding and marking extrusion products: high contrast, 100% permanent and readable codes, even on the most difficult plastic substrates



Coding and marking extrusions take many different forms, including pipes, wires, tubing, and cable insulation. Emerging trends show a preference for anti-microbial plastic pipe, as well as eco-friendly ABS and PE plastics. Traceability is vital in this industry, and codes have to remain 100% readable, even in demanding environments or on difficult substrates such as PVC, PE LSZH, or PP plastics.


ur 9450 E continuous inkjet extruded material printer, built specifically for the wire and cable industry, delivers cost-effective, high-speed, and high contrast inkjet printing, with no ink migration, on a wide range of substrates and diameters. A variety of specialty inks, including a one-fits-all silver ink and a selection of MEK-free solutions are available for use with this model.
Another choice is our SmartLase laser portfolio. The SmartLase C600 and SmartLase F250 coders reduce operating expenses thanks to ink-free operations and create permanent codes that do not fade or rub off over time. SmartLase coders are available with CO2 and fiber ranges, as well as a choice of four wavelengths and a multitude of lenses, scan heads, and ingress protection (IP) options.

Bioplants Hot Melt Coding Cardboard Markem-Imaje
Xavier Bossard – Operations, Digital and Logistics Project Manager at Bioplants @ Bioplants

“The Markem-Imaje solution proposed to Bioplants was interesting because we could choose the criteria we needed: Before that, we were using a labeler, so one consumable item was created every time we labeled a package. Today we use hot melt ink directly projected on the cardboard allows us to add traceability to the packages, which we did not have before.”
