Benefits of Laser Coding Bottles and Cans

The beverage industry has been embracing laser technology as the benefits become increasingly more visible. Laser marking systems use little-to-no consumables, reducing the cost of ownership and presenting an attractive long-term solution compared to inkjet coders that require inks, solvents, and often special storage due to chemical composition or regulations. They also apply permanent codes to bottles and cans – an ideal solution for manufacturers focused on combating anti-counterfeiting.

Laser marking systems also benefit the beverage industry by improving:

Efficiency

A laser marking system is able to integrate into existing packaging lines with minimal disruption and downtime. When integrated, it streamlines the coding process of bottles and cans, helping to improve overall productivity while reducing risk, rework, and recalls. It also eliminates the need to use ink chemicals – thus decreasing maintenance time – and improves the code appearance while reducing the cost per mark.

Versatility

Laser marking systems are able to mark on nearly any beverage bottle or can packaging, a demand necessitated by SKU proliferation. Utilizing advanced technology, lasers are even able to print on groundbreaking, eco-friendly and bioplastic packaging options. Laser marking technology can also be successfully used in environments with condensation.

Adaptability

SKU proliferation also poses concerns about adaptability. Beverage manufacturers continue to offer consumers a wider variety of products and innovative packaging materials, which repeatedly triggers the question of how to mark them. The capabilities of a coding and marking system must be able to keep up with rapidly changing demands. Laser marketing systems provide the adaptability necessary to meet present needs while preparing for the needs of the future.
