Sprinter Marking systems markers produce what is called a manufacturer's mark that is readable and legible. These marks are used in manufacturing and packaging for a variety of uses. Some examples include:
- Date codes - used typically in the perishable food industry
- Product codes - manufacturers' designations for product ID
- Spot/dot marking - used as confirmation mark of testing, differentiation
- Pass/fail marks - used for acceptance or rejection of product testing
- Insertion marks - marks that allow product to be positioned properly in assembly
- Alignment marks - also allow proper placement for correct assembly
Some customers are now using the Sprinter models to apply a long continuous mark on adjoining parts for alignment purposes. When the Sprinter model applies a line on both parts they can then be separated for additional processing then rejoined at the same position for final assembly. In other cases Sprinter models are applying a line mark on separate parts for alignment when combined for final assembly. The marks typically are 1/8 to 1/4" in width and can be up to 2" long. Inks that dry in a second or two are supplied by Sprinter to be compatible with the machine technology that delivers the impression.
This manufacturers mark should not be confused with a pad printer mark because a pad printer produces a decorative type mark.
Sprinter Marking inks are suitable for marking on paper, plastics, metals, cartons, and various porous and non-porous substrates, such as glass and rubber.
