New Halal Health-Marking ink

Needham Ink have developed a new Halal health-marking ink. We have supplied health-marking inks for many years, and although the ink is water-based, it does contain a quantity of alcohol. The alcohol evaporates as the ink dries, so none is left on the meat, but for religious reasons, a number of customers had requested that the ink used contain no alcohol at all. Our chemists have come up with a revised formulation, which works just as well, but which contains no alcohol. This ink is now available for sale to Halal abattoirs.

New high-quality CIJ Ink

We have developed a new, high-quality CIJ ink, which is capable of printing at viscosities up to 9cP. Our new CJ5B ink offers good adhesion on most common substrates, and is capable of producing excellent print quality at the higher viscosities used by some modern printers, even when using a 40 micron (pin-point) nozzle. The ink is available in black and blue at the moment, but other colours are under test and should be available shortly.

Needham Group now solar powered

Here at Needham Ink, we are committed to minimising our impact on the environment, and so we have just installed solar panels on the roof of the factory here in Whitchurch. The building has been shrouded in scaffolding for the past 2 weeks, while a total of 280 solar panels were installed above our heads. The installation was completed on schedule, and is now generating electricity to power the factory, with any power we don’t use being fed back into the national grid. How much electricity is generated depends on the weather, but we are hoping that the system should save over 17 tons of CO2 being produced every year.
