Functional ceramics are used as standard materials in various industries such as electronics. With Senodis solutions, you can provide components with a permanent marking despite high process temperatures of up to 1,600°C. The type of ink and the size of the marking can be individually selected.
Functional ceramics are usually marked with very small codes. They enable seamless control and traceability of the components and the associated process parameters, especially for quality assurance measures.
With the help of the standardised continuous inkjet printing process (CIJ) and the high-temperature inks adapted to it, we enable the printing of areas up to a minimum of 4x4 mm² (16x16 code modules). The inks that can be used vary, especially in contrast: in addition to light and dark, temperature-dependent colour changes or UV contrasts are also possible.
With us, the integration of the marking system and the data connection to your systems is done from one source.
- Quality control through traceability of material batches, individual components and associated process parameters
- Avoidance of errors and reduction of rejects
- Increased efficiency through inventory management and better planning of production processes
- Fast and reliable identification of defective parts
The labelling solution can be integrated into both existing and new lines. For this purpose, we offer individual integration concepts for each production line and intelligent concepts for reducing manual handling steps during operation. In addition, the position, shape and type of coding can also be individually adapted.
The high-temperature precursor ink used was specially developed for functional ceramics. Light and dark prints as well as colour changes or UV contrasts can be produced. The marking remains permanently on the components and is machine-readable.
Continuous inkjet (CIJ) systems are compact printers that operate with a continuous ink jet. They are particularly suitable for small fonts or codes and can be operated with different solutions such as precursor, pigment or organic inks.
The labelling solution has local data recording and storage. Standard interfaces allow for easy integration into your IT environment. In addition, we realise individual customer requirements.
In general, the CIJ printing process requires very little maintenance. It has automated cleaning cycles that we adapt to customer needs. In addition, we enable an emergency service and regular safety inspections to ensure trouble-free operation.
