Squid Ink’s Streamline 5 CIJ printing system is designed to print superior quality small characters on a variety of substrates: porous, non-porous, smooth, textured, curved, concave and more. Printing up to 5 lines of text, the Streamline offers a reliable, yet cost effective solution for virtually any small character, primary package coding application. 


Streamline 5 offers users the latest in today’s technology. Unlike any other CIJ printer on the market, Streamline 5 does not require a built in display screen. Streamline 5 operates with a wireless or wired touchscreen tablet running Squid Ink’s powerful Orion software, allowing users the option of controlling their printers on the production floor, or networking multiple systems from one central location. One tablet may be used to communicate with multiple Streamline printers or any other Squid Ink case coding printer using the Orion software platform.


Whether you are a seasoned pro, or if you have wanted to start printing codes on your products, but felt your budget restricted you from doing so, the Streamline offers a new level of economy. Operating costs are minimized with low solvent consumption. In addition, the Streamline utilizes ink and make-up manufactured directly by Squid Ink, eliminating the layered costs incurred by most competitive CIJ manufacturers who don’t make their own inks. Any way you look at it, Squid Ink’s Streamline provides users with the lowest total cost of ownership in its class.


The Streamline 5 is designed with the low maintenance features that users have come to rely on from Squid Ink. Streamline’s self-cleaning printhead with CleanJet™ maintenance routine allows quick and easy automatic start-up and shutdown. A simple press of a button commands the printer to go through a start-up cycle or flush the system for shutdown. When routine maintenance is required, components can be swapped out within minutes eliminating the need to purchase expensive filter and pump assemblies or schedule costly service calls. In addition, annual PMs can be made in minutes simply by swapping the entire ink system with an affordably priced refurbished system. 


Changing fluids in the Streamline 5 is a simple, fast, and clean process. Clean cartridges of ink and make-up can be replaced in seconds without having to stop production. In addition, no chips or RFID tags are used to lock users into a fluids hostage situation with the printer manufacturer. As a proven ink manufacturer, Squid Ink offers a comprehensive range of inks for a variety of applications and industry requirements. 


Rugged design. Revolutionary software. Low cost of ownership. Your benefits go on and on. When it comes to industrial ink jet coding, rely on Squid Ink to provide the right solution for your coding and marking needs.
