Hugo Vogelsang showcases direct steel strip printing

Hugo Vogelsang, one of the world’s leading suppliers of sophisticated steel strip grades, presented its latest cold-rolled strip solutions with direct printing capabilities at Ligna 2019.

There has been a rising interest in the market for quality suppliers of industrial saws made of steel strip with printed labelling and to meet this market trend, the company has been working on a solution that enables direct printing for saw making.

By using an industrial printer, single-colour direct printing of steel strips is possible. The current colour standard is black, but alternative colours can also be offered at customers’ request. The ink used is wipe-proof and oil-resistant.

Printed images from commercially available inkjet printers can be technically implemented: true type fonts, Unicode support, alphanumeric texts, barcodes, 2D codes, data matrix codes or logos, as well as variable data such as date, time, counters, shift codes and database.

Using the high-resolution HP thermal inkjet printer, information can be printed on non-oiled steel. A maximum print width of 12.7 mm is possible per print head within a resolution of up to 600 DPI. Up to four print heads can be cascaded, allowing labels with a writing height of 50.8 mm.
