Direct-to-egg printing improves traceability & safety

Markem-Imaje’s 9450 “Egg-jet“ coder—a DTE (Direct to Egg) inkjet printer customized for egg production—is capable of coding over 250,000 eggs/hour, and is certified for use on Moba egg processing machines. The coder can be retrofitted on existing egg production lines on a ‘plug and play’ basis.

The “Egg-jet“ 9400—available in Europe & North America—prints logos and up to 4 lines of code, directly onto eggs, using pink or blue food-grade inks. A built-in sensor prevents the insertion of incorrect ink and additive cartridges. Characterized by a mono-block printhead, the 9400 provides easy head cleaning—with its automatic cleaning system—ensuring consistency & quality of the printed code.

Codes & logos printed directly onto eggs contain “egg-zact” safety and traceability information such as best-before dates and farm identification, fulfilling legal requirements. Egg recalls relating to health concerns with salmonella have shown that traceability is vital to protecting brand reputation & consumer health.

Those eggs look suspiciously soda can like. It looks like the film director was more interested in mountain climbing with his buddies than his client’s offerings LOL

Most banished old black-only toner boxes but kept their color toner devices around because they anticipated needing both color inkjet and toner presses to meet customer needs. They were right then and continue to be right today. Because toner and inkjet can be better together. Read the Post
