Hot Strip Mills and Products

Hot rolled steel sheets have a range of coding requirements; including company name and logo, ISI and other certifications, product specification, and batch and lot numbers.

Due to the grayish colour of the steel, getting a legible code often requires heavy volume of pigmented ink.

Our advantages in hot strip products include

Tall prints at high speeds

We are the only company in India that can deliver 15 mm print at 150 m/min.

Printer array installations for 100% reliability

For utmost reliability, we can install printers in failure-proof arrays so that even if one printer fails, another automatically takes over and all the products get coded.

Industrial grade printers

Designed to work in hot and dusty environments.

Widest ink range in India

Including inks suitable for printing through a layer of oil and invisible inks for traceability purposes.

Experts in pigmented inks

Pigmented inks may be necessary to get a good contrast on hot rolled steel surfaces, but they often cause problems with printers. Control Print’s printers are engineered to work reliably on both standard and pigmented inks.

Parent line integration

With hundreds of printers running, we have a lot of experience integrating into existing IT systems in steel mills.
