We were looking for a robust industrial printer light enough to be moved easily around the factory. It needed to be simple to use and low cost to operate. And capable of printing at high resolution on multiple surfaces, including the metal transport cases for our engines. The edding portable printer ticks every box.
We purchased the edding compact printer in 2020 which meets our needs and prints directly onto the glass (glass printing), making our product completely traceable both within the UK and internationally. Any questions we’ve had have been swiftly answered by the team, and if required a site visit carried out.
Once the ceramics we produced had been packed into crates, it used to take us a lot of time and additional labour to mark the wooden crates. Thanks to edding's portable printer for mobile use, marking our wooden crates has never been easier! Because it is so easy to install and use, our staff were able to start marking within 5 minutes.
The edding team we met at the Eurasia Packaging Fair impressed us with its technological solution for industrial marking. For us, the decision to cease labelling our products and switch to marking using edding's industrial printer was a very good one, both in terms of cost and ease of use.
Historically we used ink fountain brush and stencils for marking but we needed a process to improve speed and quality of the markings. The edding portable has saved us from weekly hassles and problems when exporting pallets – to do with identifying our regulatory markings. The printer has hugely sped up the process for us and offers the versatility to mark in smaller areas now too.
Previously, we used alternative industrial printer technology that required an operator. Since switching to edding industrial printers, we have not needed an operator. Because it is so easy to use, our production efficiency has also increased. We also discovered edding's portable printer for marking flour sacks.For us, edding's portable printer has meant greater convenience and flexibility in the sack-marking process.
The edding portable gives you the flexibility to achieve a total print height of up to 25mm, allowing for a wide variety of marking options.
edding compact printers use Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology. It is one of the two most commonly used technologies for industrial marking, together with Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) technology. For a long time, the preferred solution has been CIJ, but TIJ has advanced a long way over the past decade and now offers multiple advantages over CIJ. With CIJ, a stream of ink is constantly being formed and deflected to the product when needed. CIJ therefore requires a complex system to collect and recirculate the ink; involving a lot of moving parts, ink and solvents. The edding TIJ solution is far simpler and more reliable to operate as the user simply replaces the ink cartridge. No servicing and minimal cleaning is required.
edding compact printers have been designed from the ground up, with the focus on delivering what customers really need: German-manufactured reliability, with a 24-month warranty The widest range of inks for industrial applications Intuitive handling Versatile for use with multiple ink types, and various external ancillary parts. Industry 4.0 connectivity. On each of the above, edding compact printers exceed the existing TIJ offerings in the market by delivering smart and innovative solutions for all these details that make a difference.
The system architecture is by far the most advanced in the market - ready for the Industry 4.0 era. Via its numerous inputs and outputs, an edding printer can be fully integrated into the network; able to communicate with upstream and downstream machines. The printer connects to any end device via Ethernet, WiFi or Bluetooth. It supports DCHP, SMTP Mail, HTML5 and even SNMP for connection to Manufacturing Control or ERP systems. You can control the device via a web browser on your smartphone, laptop or the installed touchscreen.
If a problem were to occur, there is a 24-month warranty covering the device (excluding consumables). A temporary replacement will typically be Express delivered to you the next day, while repairs are covered for free.
edding compact printers make it possible to print in difficult environments. The dust and temperature changes on a construction site, or the wet environment of a beverage production line, are no problem for the edding in-line 12 or edding portable 12. The clever design means they do not need integrated fans to prevent overheating, as the aluminium casing keeps the device cool and prevents dust from entering.
The 4Ah Metabo LIHD battery that comes with the printer enables you to print non-stop for up to 12 hours. The printer can also be used with an 10Ah battery to achieve 30 hours non-stop working.
