A category of industrial printers with a single continuous jet of ink.
(CIJ - Continuous Ink-Jet).
The devices are designed for labelling objects moving on a factory conveyor without requiring direct contact. Systems for labelling stationary objects are also available. They are based on moving print-head technology, where the print-heads are controlled manually or automatically. The printers can produce prints varying in height from 1 mm to a maximum of 15 mm, at a high print rate on practically any material or type of surface. Printers with continuous ink jets fall into the category of so called Small Character Print printers (SCP).
