Revolutionary Industrial Printer IQJET
Labelling plays a decisive role wherever production and packaging takes place. The printed information ensures reliable compliance with legal requirements, enables seamless tracking along the entire value chain and creates transparency and interaction opportunities for consumers. With the new IQJET industrial printer, LEIBINGER is revolutionising continuous inkjet printing (CIJ) and offering users from numerous industries an optimal solution for marking their products.

For example, IQJET prints texts, logos and codes on a variety of surfaces such as metal, plastic, glass and paper. The devices ensure high performance, print quality and efficiency with continuous availability without the need for cleaning. Users benefit from the special “Plug&Print” functionality, simple operation and five years of maintenance-free operation. Compared to conventional printers, IQJET reduces operating costs by up to 30 per cent. In addition, companies optimise their ecological footprint thanks to the low consumption of energy, ink and solvents.

Christina Leibinger, CEO at LEIBINGER and COO Jan van het Reve accepted the award in person. Leibinger summarises “We have set ourselves the goal of continuously optimising industrial CIJ printing and take on a leading role as a provider of innovative labelling technologies. We are proud that we were able to win over the jury with this innovative strength.” Van het Reve adds “Focus of our further developments is always on customer benefit, i.e. with the LEIBINGER printers we use, we want to make a significant contribution to optimising operating costs, sustainability and efficiency in production and packaging lines worldwide.”

LEIBINGER also impressed the nomination committee for the Innovator of the Year 2024 award. The recognised experts from business, science and the media consider LEIBINGER to be forward-looking in its field. The award is the largest public prize in the German economy and honours companies of all sizes and industries as well as innovative ideas from all business sectors. More than 70,000 entrepreneurs, managing directors and other business enthusiasts also vote online for the winners of the public awards in various categories.
