Squid Ink Introduces New Food-Grade Ink for Continuous Inkjet Printing Systems

April 22, 2020   by Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc.




April 1, 2020, Brooklyn Park, MN – Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc., a leading manufacturer of coding and marking systems for product identification and traceability, introduces the addition of a food-grade ink to the growing Squid Ink fluids family. SI-CIJ9351 Food Grade Red Ink is approved for use in Squid Ink’s Streamline® 5 and JetStream™ CIJ printers and is ideal for use in facilities that require food grade ink.

SI-CIJ9351 food grade ink is designed for printing quality codes directly onto food products, such as eggs, cheese, and other edible products, and works well for applications where the food package may not create an effective barrier against ink migration. SI-CIJ9351 complies with all FDA guidelines and is manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) specifications.

Squid Ink’s food-grade ink utilizes the same simple quick-change cartridges as existing Squid Ink CIJ fluids. Clean cartridges of ink and make-up can be replaced in seconds without having to stop production. Also, no chips or RFID tags are used to lock users into a fluids hostage situation with the printer manufacturer. As a proven ink manufacturer, Squid Ink offers a comprehensive range of inks for a variety of applications and industry requirements.
