Coding and marking on windscreen wiper cap (POM).

14 Dec, 2018

 

Markings and codes containing information such as serial or batch numbers among other data, need to be made on the plastic components used in the automotive industry. These markings must be carried out obtaining maximum contrast. These automotive parts will undergo temperature oscillations and will be in direct contact with dirt and grease, so the permanence of the marking must be one hundred percent guaranteed. (more…)

Marking and coding in water bottles

Marking and coding in water bottles

 

PET is the most commonly used material in the beverage industry. It is a synthetic material belonging to the group of polyesters which have the characteristic that the faster they cool, the more transparent they become.

When marking water bottles, it is essential that the substrate is not damaged and that no grooves are created with the coding. The SPA CP 30 of Macsa IDwith a wavelength of 9.3 microns, allows a foaming reaction to be generated between the laser and the plastic, meaning that the bottle is kept free from damage and the marking obtained is white and of high contrast.

Coding on pain pots

28 Nov, 2018



Metallic containers are the most suitable ones for maintaining paint in optimum conditions; they are resistant, hermetic and are also environmentally friendly as 8 out of 10 paint pots are recycled or reused, giving a second life to the container.

Coding on paint pots can be carried out directly on the metal lid without the need for saving some space for marking. In this case, 7 mm characters have been marked directly on the white lacquered metal.

With Macsa ID’s CO2 laser, SPA CB 30 P, marking can be achieved with high contrast, visibility and which remains permanent during the product’s useful life. Macsa ID’s SPA CB laser guarantees reliable high speed marking thanks to a combination of laser guided systems using extremely fast mirrors.

Laser: SPA CB 30 P

Lens: 100 x 100
Industry:  Building materials
Application type: Coding
Product: Paint pot lid
Material: Metal
Marking type: Dynamic

Coding in the fruit and vegetable sector

25 Oct, 2018

From the farm to the fork

Nowadays, consumers seek both quality and safety in the products they buy and consume. Companies in the food and drink industry need reliable and efficient coding systems in order to guarantee the quality of their fruit and vegetable and to locate production batches quickly and accurately, in case they need to be removed urgently from circulation.

Such coding systems have been developed to control the traceability of food products from the farm to the table, or as it is known commonly in the sector, “From the farm to the fork”.

The objective is to maintain an exhaustive control of all the products from their origin to their point of distribution. This control starts on the farm for agricultural products (both animals and fruit and vegetables), passes through the food processing industries, ends in the shops where they are distributed to the consumers, and includes all the agents that intervene in their transport and logistics.

Laser coding on metal lids.

8 Oct, 2018

 

In the food and drink industry, metal lids guarantee the hermetic seal required by many products. There are different types: special lids for pasteurized products, with protection, with a sterilization button, and of different diameters and colours. However, all of them need to be manufactured to withstand aging and a high level of corrosion and oxidation.

With the SPA 10 laser by Macsa ID, we obtain good results of definition and contrast, even on black caps. This CO2 laser guarantees optimal, clear marking on coloured backgrounds, offering high contrast and visibility. Furthermore, thanks to the characteristics of CO2 technology, the metal is not damaged and the properties of the lid are kept intact. With the 10W SPA, for messages similar to the ones of this application, a speed of 29m/min can be reached with a separation between markings of 100mm. (more…)
