Leibinger Showcasing Cable Printing Solution


Leibinger’s coding system can mark cables, wires, pipes and tubes at speeds of up to 1000m/min or 60km/h – as fast as a lion can run. With the JET Rapid Wire, the production of extrusion products is no longer slowed down by marking.

Thanks to Leibinger’s Sealtronic nozzle sealing technology along with special inks and industry-specific technologies, the industrial inkjet printer ensures high speeds, maximum reliability and user-friendliness – and therefore a measurable overall increase in productivity.

Even at top speeds, the JET Rapid Wire impresses users with a clean, durable printout. Fixed and variable letters and numbers are clearly legible even at speeds of up to 1000m/min. Immediately after printing, special inks ensure maximum adhesion and abrasion resistance on all common product materials.

At the heart of the innovative Leibinger printing technology is the unique hydraulic system with Sealtronic – a fully automatic nozzle sealing technology that can seal the complete ink circuit airtight during production breaks. With this proven advance by Leibinger, common problems of conventional inkjet printers for industrial use are solved at the source. The reliability of the marking is significantly increased and labour-intensive cleaning of the print heads is no longer necessary. Dried ink and clogged nozzles are a thing of the past.

Another clever feature that Leibinger has developed for production optimisation in the cable industry is the speed-dependent output function, which is used to actively monitor common pre-treatments such as corona or plasma, and control them by the printer. If the production speed falls below the specified minimum speed, the pre-treatment is actively switched off to avoid production downtimes.

Printheads specially developed for these applications adapt to the shape of the products to be printed, thereby enabling even higher marking speeds. Also the smallest diameters can be legibly marked with the high-speed printers. And, with the JET Rapid Wire PI, even dark materials can be marked with so-called contrast inks at speeds of up to 800m/min.

Leibinger also has the right solution for flexible applications with frequent product changes on the lines. For example, a special ink is used that is easily legible on dark as well as light surfaces. This all-round solution eliminates the need to purchase several devices for printing different coloured cables, wires and tubes. The company will showcase these solutions at the Wire and Tube 2020 expo.
