Coding with laser reactive ink on glass


Glass, one of the most widely used substrates in cosmetics and perfumes, is one of the materials in which laser marking is of excellent quality and which is also considered as one of the hardest. In addition to this, Macsa ID has developed a system that allows a QR code plus 2 lines of text to be marked on a base of laser reactive ink.

laser-coding-macsa-perfum-02The reactive ink base generates a black label as a reaction to the heat which then allows a clear and quality contrast to be made. Thanks to a patented system, the permanence and durability of the reactive layer against scratches and/or external agents is guaranteed.

With this system, which achieves high marking speeds, the possibility arises of marking variable or promotional codes (QR codes to be read with a smartphone) on substrates (glass) that previously required a machine vision system in order to be read later on. Moreover, the IP54 protection of the system prevents the glass debris produced from the marking from entering the laser or damaging the lens.

Macsa ID will exhibit at EMPACK 2016 its latest innovations in coding and traceability




EMPACK brings together over 350 exhibitors and becomes the meeting point for more than 8.200 professionals from packaging sector.

Macsa ID will participate in the 9th edition of Empack Fair, the largest gathering of 2016 for the packaging and logistics industries, at IFEMA (Madrid) on 23th and 24th November.

On this occasion, Macsa ID will show solutions for coding, marking and traceability to cope the needs in all productive sectors, among which the latest innovation in laser technology for coding iCON 2 expertise in small character coding, the modular laser SPA, the iLaserBox that stands out for its security and productivity, the Integra software a solution to improve the production line dynamics, and the idJet ink-printer as the highest representative of reliability and efficiency among its category.

Visit us at Stand C-22 in Hall 9 at Feria de Madrid (IFEMA).
