Food gets a lot more personal with the FSR90 edible ink printer
Lafayette, Louisiana – In the not-so distant future, expect your food to get a lot more personal.
The days of hand painting images on cakes and cookies are fading fast. With LogoJET’s new FSR90 printer, photo-quality full-color images on single bite of food, the size of a bean, are just a click away.
“Customization is our bread and butter,” said Susan Cox, LogoJET CEO. “Now we’re taking the capability we know well to the next level in the food industry — and the possibilities are endless.”
Cox says that while edible printers have been on the market for five years, the FSR90 printer represents the next generation in printing on food.
“This new printer is also a great example of how LogoJET continues to develop ways to add more value for our customers,” said Cox. “We’ve been beta testing the printers with internationally known candy and cookie makers. We’ve used our customization knowhow to work with them to develop integrated workflow solutions — something we’re happy to do with other clients, as well.”
Cox says the new FSR90 printer is built for heavy-duty industrial usage and designed to bring customization to large-scale food manufacturers. It can print on items up to 6” thick. “The full edible solution has been in development for 18 months to ensure the best stability and compliance you can expect in the food market, said Cox.”
“This printer is built on the same industrial platform as our UV printer but formulated with a specific type of edible ink,” Cox said. “The inks are all made in the USA. The printer uses full CMYK printing, creating nice vibrant images with a broad range of colors on various types of food.”
These new edible inks were developed in partnership with SunChemical, a global ink manufacturer that specializes in safe and compliant edible printing inks.
Additionally, the components of the inks meet the requirements of US Code of Federal 21CFR. The inks are certified Kosher & Halal, according to Lon Riley, LogoJET’s Chief Operating Officer.
“The printer can print directly to cakes, cookies, candies, bread, tortillas — even small marshmallows,” Riley said. “The FSR90 printer makes it cost effective to do very straightforward digital short run printing — customization on demand without the set-up time required for legacy printers. With this printers, you can jet the ink directly onto food.”
