FOOD PACKAGING LASER MARKING

THE LASER MARKING ADVANTAGE

 

One of the reason for adopting laser marking technology, relates to the use of inks on food packaging.

Compliance with local regulations on food marking and labeling is one of the fastest developing applications in the packaging industry

Many countries are enforcing new regulations on batch traceability, consumer information, and even on package recycling information that has to be posted on the labeling.

Regulations vary from country to country and even state to state in the U.S [such is the special case of California].

No other system offers more flexibility, zero consumables and lower per print cost than laser marking systems.

LASER MARKING TECHNOLOGY

 

Different technologies are used in Food packaging marking applications. Many food products have a plastic or paper wrap printed in vivid colors.

Coating removing is widely used on food wraps within the food industry.

This technology involves the laser beam to remove the outer coat of the foil to leave a clear, almost white marking with excellent readability.

FOOD PACKAGING APPLICATIONS

 

The marking quality depends on many factors such as the foil cover time exposure to the laser ablating beam.

We have the expertise to customize our marking systems via software to different time exposures in order to get a perfect readable print even in the most demanding materials.

Custom laser wavelenghts are also used on specific materials to control penetration, such some plastics; in order to create a perfect easy to read marking without burning smears.
