In the dynamic global market where competition is ever more intense, it is vital for packaging professionals to select suitable inks for different printing applications in order to achieve the best results. Getting quality print may not be as simple as it seems. By Lin Zhu, director of Ink Development, Videojet Technologies
The 7610 fibre laser marking system addresses the needs of high-speed production lines and engraving applications, and saves time, materials and manpower.
Specially designed for high-speed beverage, pharmaceutical and extrusion manufacturers, the system suits marking applications on hard plastics and metals, such as aluminium cans, extruded tubes and cables.
The high legibility codes it marks can be used as promotional coding solutions to connect directly with consumers through the application of intelligent variable codes on their products.
It needs virtually no maintenance, and the 100-Watt fibre ensures a seamless fit into the packaging line, especially when space is at a premium.
Wolke by Videojet has developed an enhanced web interface for the m600 oem thermal inkjet printer, supporting the packaging line OEMs and integrators that supply turnkey hardware and software for these track and trace serialisation projects.
The printer now features enhancements to its web user interface that allows customers to control their line from a touchscreen. The interface has been optimised for easy use on any touch screen panel with just a finger. A large and real-time print preview, and quick position editing, enables operator flexibility when making adjustments to text or data field locations in the label.
Coding is essential for all fast moving consumer goods, including beverages. Laser systems are one way for beverage manufacturers to code their products reliably and efficiently to meet growing consumer demands. By Sascha Ammesdörfer, business unit manager for laser, Videojet Technologies
To reduce packaging waste and increase productivity, Videojet Technologies, a supplier of coding, marking and printing solutions, has formulated two new environmentally-friendly coloured inks for the food and beverage packaging industry.
Wolke by Videojet has developed the m600 oem, a thermal inkjet printer with more cutting edge technology, processing power and security capabilities than its m600 predecessor. The new printer delivers a footprint up to 60 percent smaller than comparable machines.
It has 18 possible mounting orientations and a choice of four distinct printhead designs optimised for integration into constrained track and trace packaging spaces, and allows manufacturers to print faster with better throughput while supporting ultra-fast handling of serialised data of more than 20 variable records per second.
With this machine, manufacturers can meet present or even future global track and trace requirements.
