Dial Face & Equipment Serial Plate Printer

Industrial Label Printing

If you are tasked with printing industrial labeling, dial faces, equipment serial plates and signage, DCS's small-format Direct Jet inkjet printers are up to the task. Our industrial label printer systems allow you to print full-color, photo-quality images, logos and text directly onto rigid substrates such as PVC, acrylics, metals, anodized aluminum and wood. Our industrial label printers allow you to create your own custom labels for any application.

DCS also offers a proprietary line of InkMark™ coated substrates, which are optimized to simultaneously accept DCS's Multisolve™ dye and clear inks in a single pass. The resulting bond creates a more durable image with greater resistance to many perfumes and solvents, including 100% isopropyl alcohol. The combination makes an ideal substrate for printing dial faces, industrial labels and serial plates. It's ideal for printing everything from interior signage to desk plates, door plates, machine tags and labels.

Our compact UV LED inkjet printers provide many unique capabilities that are valuable for equipment serial plate printing, including:

  • Print text that is small, yet readable
  • Easy serialization with our Color Byte software – no need to type in each serial or identification number
  • Durable prints are resistant to solvents and abrasion
  • Create full-color plates, even on dark substrates
  • Use our coated InkMark™ UV Metals to print plates without the use of any chemical wipe or adhesion promoter

DuraJet™: Open-Pored Aluminum for Sub-Surface Color Printing in Aluminum

Use your Direct Jet solvent printer in conjunction with DuraJet™ open-pored aluminum from Horizons Imaging Systems Group for revolutionary sub-surface color printing on anodized aluminum. This imaging system allows you to digitally create durable, full-color images on anodized aluminum and subsequently seal the image under the anodized layer, making it virtually impervious to abrasion, chemicals, moisture, humidity and salt spray. Anodized aluminum printing has been challenging in the past, but DuraJet™ makes the process long-lasting and simple.
