Printing on Building & Construction Materials

With near-constant run times, dusty environments and temperature extremes, you need a coding solution that works as hard as you do.

Building materials manufacturers can benefit by upgrading their old printing technology to today’s variable printing and coding solutions.  Whether your application is marking specifications such as span ratings and panel grades, placing branding information on engineered woods and composite materials, marking bulk materials or discrete building components, Videojet can help.  Videojet printers are engineered to perform in the heat, dust and humidity of your production environment.

Achieving consistent code quality over the useful lifetime of your printer is not only possible, but with robust solutions from Videojet, you can minimize your maintenance, too.

Laser Marking Systems

A beam of infrared light focused and steered with a series of carefully controlled small mirrors to create marks where the heat of the beam interacts with the packaging surface.


Thermal inkjet (TIJ)

Ink-based, non-contact printing using heat and surface tension to move ink onto a package surface. Generally used to print 2D DataMatrix and other bar codes.


Thermal Transfer Overprinting (TTO)

A digitally controlled printhead precisely melts ink from a ribbon directly onto flexible films to provide high resolution, real-time prints.. 



Continuous inkjet (CIJ)

Fluid based, non-contact printing of up to five lines of text, linear and 2D bar codes, or graphics, printed on a variety of packaging types including stationary packaging via traversing systems.


Large Character Marking (LCM)

Ink-based, non-contact printing of multiple data types (alphanumeric, logos and bar codes) in large sizes primarily used for secondary packaging such as cases.


Label Printer Applicator (LPA)

Prints and places labels of various sizes on multiple package types. 


Reliable, continuous print on paper and plastic bags
When bagging powdered materials, there can be variability with finished product placement on your conveyors. This can create distorted codes due to inconsistent throw distance from bag to bag. Equipped with the right accessories and the know-how for seamless installation on your line, Videojet experts can help you with optimal printer placement on your conveyor for clean and consistent codes.

Printing on paper & plastic cement bags

Large Character Marking

  • Large character size marking at high line speeds
  • Pre-load job product codes or network your printers to minimize changeover times and entry errors

Continuous Ink Jet

  • Options with CleanFlow™ technology and IP65 rating designed to minimize maintenance
  • Bulk ink and make-up systems reduce operator/printer interaction

Print a variety of text, characters or logos in hot, non-stop production environments
Regardless of whether you are printing lot, date or bar codes, moisture levels, panel grades, inspector ID information, species or batch data, coding equipment selection is largely driven by the demands of your production environment. The ease of maintenance must also be taken into consideration when bulky equipment limits accessibility to your printer. Videojet offers rugged printer options that are designed for dependability, minimized maintenance, and ease of use.

Printing batch numbers on building materials wood products

Continuous Ink Jet

  • Variable throw distance helps reduce printhead damage due to uneven lumber surfaces
  • High resolution white and pigmented inks in black, blue, red, and yellow

Thermal Ink Jet

  • Simple and cost-effective change-outs of the cartridge provides a new printhead with each replacement. This solution can be used for lumber substrates where wood slivers can damage the printhead.
  • High resolution bar codes and logos

Large Character Marking

  • Robust industrial printer design with IP65 cabinets available for harsh production environments
  • Available micro-purge technology helps reduce required maintenance and printer damage due to operators forgetting to purge printheads

Code quality and your production environment
With the challenges of printing consistent codes in harsh environments and the cost and effort required to address operator-related coding mistakes, coding errors can quickly become a headache. Videojet offers exclusive technologies such as CleanFlow® and Dynamic Calibration™ that can help you print clean, consistent codes, even in challenging production environments. And our Code Assurance solutions can help simplify operator-to-printer interaction, and better equip operators to achieve the right code on the right product, time after time.

Continuous Ink Jet

  • Pigmented inks provide high contrast on dark backgrounds, improving legibility
  • Dynamic Calibration™ feature adjusts to temperature variation at the production site, helping to ensure consistent code quality

Laser Marking Systems

  • Sharp, clear codes with high contrast. Highly attractive, gold-colored codes are possible on extruded PVC
  • Fiber laser marking system is able to code on metal surfaces

Help reduce costs and increase packaging line flexibility
Printing product or part number information directly on the bag can help reduce pre-printed inventory holding costs, long lead times, and simplify production changeovers. By using generic film and coding variable information on demand with a Videojet Thermal Transfer Overprinting solution, you can help reduce packaging costs and increase productivity.

  • Patented clutchless ribbon drive helps minimize maintenance-related downtime and maximizes ribbon efficiency

Code on almost anything
Due to their content and application constraints, many building materials packages, especially the ones designed for DIY, come in a variety of specialized containers. In the retail space, packaging design often differentiates your products and can be integral to your success. Videojet offers robust coding solutions to address the unique needs of a wide range of specialty packaging types.
