Videojet Technologies Inc., a world-leading manufacturer of coding, printing and laser marking products, fluids and accessories for the product identification industry, today announced that Baosheng Group has improved uptime and print quality by adding Videojet’s 1710 continuous ink jet printer to its high-volume production facility in Jiangsu Province, China.
Baosheng Group is a leading cable manufacturer in China. The company produces a wide range of general-purpose power and communications cable and wires in addition to specialty cable for the mining and marine industries. The company has four production lines that run over 32 feet of cable per minute, 24 hours a day. Previously, Baosheng had been utilizing 40 early-generation continuous ink jet printers, but was finding it difficult to clearly mark the products with required information including the manufacturer’s name, product model, cable specifications, measurement marks, date, voltage, CCC certification, equipment codes and working shift.
“Code legibility and ink adhesion is vital to our business when we are required to meet industry regulations. Additionally, our high production speeds, hot temperatures and factory environmental conditions make it necessary to implement a printer that can perform consistently and keep production moving,” said Ju ChaoRong, Director of Technology Management for Baosheng. “We’ve found this with Videojet’s 1710 continuous ink jet coder. We can run any ink we need—including pigmented, high-contrast ink—in the 1710 coders without problems. And the ink dries very quickly with excellent adhesion, supporting our fast production speed.”
Baosheng selected Videojet for its high performance equipment with operational stability, competitive pricing and timely service response. When encountering extreme humidity and wide temperature swings, many other continuous ink jet printers experience clogs and ink contamination, causing major delays along the production line. The Videojet’s 1000 Line of continuous ink jet printers, including the 1710, was specifically designed with CleanFlow printheads and SmartCartridgeTM ink technology to deliver clear codes in tough operating conditions and help eliminate ink contamination.
“Maximizing production line uptime is critical to delivering the widest product selection and most competitive prices to our customers. The design of the Videojet 1710 printer contributes directly to our production line uptime,” said ChaoRong. “The 1710 is ready when our lines are, helping us achieve our business goals and gain significant financial savings.”
“Baosheng’s challenging operating environment really tests the efficiency and quality of their production equipment. Therefore, Videojet is continually striving to deliver the highest quality products to help customers like Baosheng achieve uptime and significantly eliminate waste and ink contamination,” said Mark Breunig, continuous ink jet product manager for Videojet. “We are pleased to offer continuous ink jet printers that can meet Baosheng’s high expectations and help drive down operating costs.” After the successful installation of the first Videojet 1710 printer, Baosheng purchased nine additional units and nine Videojet 1510 printers.
