Beverage Laser Marking
Beverage marking is probably the most demanding application for high speed Laser Marking Technology.
In this market segment, profits are made on very large volume production lines, bottles are filled and sealed at amazing speeds.
There are many materials used on beverage laser marking.
While paper label marking is widely used on products like bottled beer, P.E.T. [polyethylene terephthalate] is the choice in bottled water products and aluminum is widely used on soda, canned beers and juices.
Modern production lines work today at amazing speeds. Beverage marking is a specially demanding niche.
Volumes are very large and production lines must work at high speed with unmanned automation.
The marking system will work to the line speed specifications to keep the high productivity achieved in large factories.
Reliability is a must on beverage laser marking as the production line loses revenue if stopped.
High speed production lines
There are many design variables involved in the high speed marking. The scanner speed is obviously one but not the only one.
Software and firmware optimized design for speed is a factor. A good example is PET marking.
Our proprietary software features an algorithm in order to optimize the marking speed by analyzing the vectors within the characters of each message line.
Laser output power and the material absorption at the wavelengths used are also a factor.
The shape of the production line, the location of the scanner relative to the material to be marked, and the location of the marking equipment related to the object are also factors to consider.
Optimizing a Laser Marking System for speed is an engineering challenge.
Our expertise in the beverage and food laser marking field provides reliable solutions to our customers’ demand for Laser Marking in high speed production lines.
