Small Character Continuous Inkjet Coding
Transform your production line with small character continuous inkjet (CIJ) printing technology from Matthews. CIJ printing solutions are fast, precise and reliable – so your line keeps moving and your products always get high quality codes.
Small character continuous inkjet is a non-contact printing method where electrically charged droplets of ink (only half the diameter of a human hair) are expelled from a printhead nozzle at a rate of up to 120,000 droplets per second and accurately propelled onto a substrate.
This makes CIJ printers ideal for high-speed lines and irregular products across a host of sectors: food and beverage, grocery, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and timber to name a few.

Manage coders with ease
Matthews’ range of Linx CIJ coders are renowned globally for their ease of use, reliability and low cost of ownership. It comes down to their robust, sealed printhead, which is perfectly suited to harsher production environments. Plus the printhead has an auto-flush feature, meaning minimal downtime and operator intervention so your lines keep moving. Linx CIJ coders are at least IP55 rated, and operate without the need for factory air.
