Industry 4.0 projects are implemented in many companies today with a common objective to integrate business processes through cloud technologies. These help implement synergy across the company. In many cases projects such as big data analytics, preventive maintenance, and remote maintenance by specialists are targeted as the first step in the process.SPA-F-20-cream-touchscreen-macsa-coding

These projects necessitate the development of products that cover the aspects of maintenance, administration capability, fault-free operation and data collection.

Product development and engineering processes in Macsa ID are oriented to produce smart equipment.

Laser marking on aluminum

 

 

There are many reasons why the products are coded, thanks to Macsa ID laser equipment, almost all substrates may be marked with guarantees of permanence and contrast.

This is the case of aluminum valves. A 2D Datamatrix code marking was performed on them to control traceability.

OLIVER + BATLLE is a family-run business with worldwide presence which develops production machines and turnkey plants for the Paints, Inks and Adhesives Industry.

With a total area of 14,000 m2 and an employee workforce of 110 people in its headquarters in Badalona, Spain, OLIVER + BATLLE operates in 4 business areas: shaking, milling, packaging and project engineering, for the full range of medium and high viscosity products manufactured by its customers.

The Macsa ID’s purpose in this project was labelling paint cans with different label formats:

  • Labelling System integration in a production line with a maximum cadence of 40 units per minute depending on the container size.
  • Automatic adjustment system that can label containers of different diameters without manual setting.
  • Labelling cylindrical and conical cans.
  • Automatic positioning system of the container by laser detector.
  • Handle positioning system.
  • Automatic containters dosage and separator.
  • Integration with transport systems.
  • Communication with the machine by Ethernet.

5 benefits of laser marking that will convince you

Companies that need to mark their products face many challenges in terms of achieving high-quality coding. And traditional marking systems do not always provide the optimal result we are looking for. Laser marking, on the other hand, stands out from other systems because of its reliability and precision.

Due to its adaptability and printing quality, laser marking has been able to meet the challenges of innovative materials and new product designs. And if we add this to the fact that it is a clean, adaptable and easy-to-use system, using laser marking for your company’s coding needs would appear to be an easy choice.

However, if you are still not convinced, let us summarize the benefits of lasers compared to other systems in 5 key points.
