WHAT IS CONTINUOUS INK JET (CIJ) PRINTING?
Ideal for marking on flat or curved surfaces, continuous inkjet (CIJ) technology is a non-contact printing method that can utilize a range of continuous inkjet inks to print on almost any substrate.
Packed with features and designed to cover a wide range of applications, Citronix CIJ printers are built to deliver in the four areas that matter most.
They are Simple, Reliable, Capable and Excellent Value.
