Coding and Marking System
Contact Sales at Lead Tech Team
The continuous inkjet printer has almost become a common equipment in the production line of the food and beverage industry. For customers, it is crucial to choose the corresponding technology and ink to design a coding solution that meets their own production materials and production environment. Let's talk about the application of the continuous inkjet printer in the beverage industry.
The production environment of the beverage industry is more complex, and the labeling requirements are also different. The logo of the beverage industry has very specific and strict requirements in law. In addition to the bar code on the outer packaging box, the production date, the shelf life of the beverage and the batch number, etc. should be clearly read by consumers, and at the same time it must be consistent with the overall appearance on the packaging box. The code should be clear to the shipper and distributor.
Nowadays, beverage packaging materials are diverse, such as glass, plastic bottles, film-coated cartons, cans, shrinkable plastic films, etc. To mark on the surface of so many materials, we need a CIJ printer manufacturer that can provide a wide range of marking technologies. Because for different materials, they can provide corresponding inkjet coding technology or laser coding technology solutions, plus a variety of inks, which can ensure the requirements of high-quality logos on various materials.
The bottling line is fast and the beverage industry has a large production volume, especially some beer and beverage manufacturers have multiple high-speed filling production lines with a maximum speed of 36,000 bottles / hour. So it needs to select the suitable continuous inkjet printer and ink.
Moisture and changing temperature condense on the material to be marked. This is one of the problems often encountered in the beverage production industry that is also difficult to solve. The pressurized spray head and stainless steel casing can ensure the maximum degree of sealing; provide an accessory film to ensure good adhesion of ink even if it is condensed again.
Suitable for severe production environment and strict hygiene requirements. When choosing a continuous inkjet printer, beverage manufacturers must consider strict hygienic conditions and shock absorption of the production line, and some must also consider that the printer can be washed with water together with the production equipment and environment. And IP65 protection devices are often necessary.
The resistance to high humidity and high dust makes the continuous inkjet printer maintain good operation and work even in harsh production environments. In contrast, the industry characteristics of the food and beverage industry determine its special requirements for labeling, so the provision of safe and reliable inks is also crucial.
