Industrial coding and marking solutions for printing on rigid containers
Polyethylene (PE) and High-density polyethylene (HDPE) are among the most common plastics used for rigid packaging. With relatively low surface energy, printing on plastic containers can be challenging but is easily achievable with Videojet solutions.
The Videojet sample lab can provide you with various codes on your plastic packaging using different technologies. They will suggest the optimal technology and help you make an informed decision before you invest in a coding solution.
Videojet offers solutions for coding products that help in the fight against COVID-19 and other health issues. With Videojet printers and lasers, you can print directly on plastic bottles and other plastic containers of disinfectant and cleansers.
Continuous inkjet (CIJ) printing on plastic containers
CIJ is an ink-based coding technology which is ideal for curved surfaces and high-speed lines. Excellent code durability can be achieved by matching the ink formulation to the plastic type and product-use environment. With over 640 application-specific fluids, Videojet offer a wide range of ink colors that can provide ideal solution for printing on plastic bottles, plastic pipes and tubes, plastic lids, plastic egg cartons and plastic bags. CIJ is an ideal solution for coding and marking lot numbers, best-by dates and expiration dates on plastic canisters, bottles and containers.
Laser marking on plastic containers
Lasers can provide a high-resolution, permanent code directly on plastic bottles or on labels by causing a material change. Different plastic materials have different reactions to fiber laser; typically a color change or engraving effect is achieved. However, laser coding has a restricted color palette, providing limited contrast on most plastics. Fiber laser systems are an ideal solution for marking on plastic pipes, plastic tubs, plastic bottle closures and plastic automotive parts made of many robust materials such as high-density Polyethylene (HDPE), Nylon, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).
Videojet offers solutions for coding products that help in the fight against COVID-19 and other health issues. With Videojet printers and lasers, you can print barcodes, best-by dates, expiration dates, traceability codes, and product information directly on plastic bottles and containers of hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes.
