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.
BestCode has launched the Model 81 System continuous ink jet printer that is targeted at the basic, entry level marking and coding applications printing one or two lines of text, barcodes or graphic.
These include “best by”, “lot code”, “sell by” or “expiration codes”, and other identifying marks or codes to industrial and consumer goods to ensure product traceability.
The system is simplified enough to allow anyone to operate, minimising operator touches and extending time between human interaction. With the onetouch single step operator functions, it reduces any chance for mistakes, and the CleanStart technology it features automatically cleans the system, ensuring continuous hygiene.
