For applications that require easy-to-read, variable data codes on dark or difficult to mark materials, Videojet Technologies Inc. has designed the Videojet 1710 small character Сontinuous Ink Jet printer. 

The printer utilizes high-contrast, pigmented inks to create bright, clean codes on surfaces,where dye-based inks are not effective, such as colored glass, rubber tubing, plastic cabling and dark paperboard. It is capable of printing a variety of fonts in multiple languages, as well as linear bar codes, 2D DataMatrix codes, custom logos and graphics.
