Markem-Imaje Introduces New Low Odor, Alcohol-Based Ink, Enhancing the User and Product Experience

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., February 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Markem-Imaje, part of Dover (NYSE: DOV), is launching its FB655 continuous inkjet ink, a new ink product aimed at the food industry, as well as fast-moving consumer goods like cosmetics. The low odor, alcohol-based ink improves user experience, convenience and cost control, while delivering excellent code quality.

The FB655 ink is virtually odor-free and is financially and environmentally advantageous compared to other ink products. The associated additive consumption is 50% lower than that of more traditionally used inks. Additionally, unlike the previous generation of alcohol-based inks, the FB655 does not require the installation of a pressurization kit or the use of compressed air. This means no investment in an accessory is required and no extra energy is consumed in terms of compressed air.

“Our new FB655 ink delivers the quality and convenience of the Markem-Imaje name with improved efficiency and cost control benefits, helping manufacturers meet food safety, health and environmental standards,” explains Vincent Millot, Consumables Product Marketing Manager, Markem-Imaje.

Like all Markem-Imaje inks, the FB655 ink provides excellent code definition with very clear contours and no smudging, irrespective of the printed material. It can be used to print easy-to-read Datamatrix or QR codes and works with all of Markem-Imaje’s continuous inkjet printers.

Consistent with Markem-Imaje’s policies regarding the responsible production and use of its inks, this consumable meets existing regulations and directives governing packaging, whether required or recommended, including REACH, GMP, HACCP, EuPIA, Swiss Ordinance and Nestlé Guidance Note.
