Marking and Coding Solutions To Fulfill Requirements Across The Protein Industry

Are you in the protein production, processing, or packaging industry? Extreme conditions, harsh environments and wash-down requirements call for industrial grade printers that can withstand integration into moist, wet and high temperature areas.

Accuracy is key for managing large variations in unique or frequently changing codes in order to keep in compliance with state and federal governance, track & trace as well as to protect and prioritize consumer safety.

Whether you need handheld equipment for test runs, small batches, or daily production, case coders, automation systems, or line control systems AMI has top quality solutions.

Many protein plants have wet conditions and require daily wash-downs for cleanliness. It is no longer necessary to cover your systems with plastic bags or remove them from the line prior to daily disinfecting and wash down procedures.  We offer IP65 solutions to protect your equipment and keep you up and running.


The IP65 thermal inkjet Zenjet Ultra IP65 (pictured right) is made of stainless steel, has a 1/2″  print height and comes with microcontroller and software.

What does IP65 mean? This refers to enclosure ratings. IP stands for Ingress Protection. It is an international standard of sealing effectiveness for the electrical enclosure’s safety against dust, dirt, moisture, as well as incidents with tools and accidental contact.

The numbers 65 have two separate meanings.

  • 6 refers to solids. This means that the product is completely sealed against foreign objects large and small. This offers safety for the equipment against dust and particulates as well as safety for the user preventing tools or hands from touching potentially hazardous electrical components.
  • 5 refers to liquids. This offers proven protection against forms of moisture as well as low pressure water jets. A 6.3mm nozzle of directed water is sprayed from all angles for a minimum of 15 minutes, if there are no harmful effects to the components it will pass.

Our products are simple enough for a startup and robust enough for fortune 500 companies that demand broad ranges of unique features. Used throughout the protein industry from small batch and craft companies to global leaders. Automated Marking Inc. has equipment that will check all the boxes as well as a team of industry experts to ensure proper selection, installation, and service.
