Macsa Id: Laser coding on food film

Supplier News

Macsa ID equipment is used to code and mark products made from a wide variety of materials, including paper, cardboard, plastics (PET, PVC, HDPE), glass, metals and wood. The messages and graphics that are achieved are of high quality, a minimal operating cost and at high speeds.

Every time you go to the supermarket to buy some type of “snack” you notice the number of different markings that the packaging contains. Each with a particular characteristic, every marking is adapted to its production speed, pigment colour and will even directly depend on the interior content among others.

Today’s Application News focuses on how these markings can be carried out and how we adapt what we base the marking parameters on by using the example of a marking made dynamically on the cookie “snack” packaging.

In this type of packaging, it is common to mark a manufacturing date and an expiration date that are easy to read by the consumer when the information is required. To do this, the design of the product must be taken into account so that the marking does not interfere with the visual composition of the packaging.

The most suitable laser for today’s application is a Macsa id D-5005 Green of 5W power, with a 100x100mm lens. As shown in the photos, it is capable of obtaining the right contrast so as not to damage the container (barrier material) even on irregular surfaces (variable focal length) and with different pigment colours.
