Laser marking on biodegradable capsules

One of society’s most important challenges is the sustainability of the planet and the role effective recycling plays within that. That is why the packaging industry is constantly innovating to develop products that are recyclable and have minimal impact on the environment, while at the same time offering new functional and attractive solutions for the consumer.

One of these innovative applications is biodegradable single-dose capsules. Manufactured with a plastic substance, it allows different products to be encapsulated by vacuum to maintain all their characteristics while offering a better experience to the end-user. Marking these types of capsules is done with CO2 laser marking system (with a 10.6 wavelength μm) that leaves a high contrast whitish mark without damaging the package and no risk of altering the characteristics of the product or breaking it.

The fact that each capsule can be personalized with different complex information (such as logos, nutritional information, etc.) implies a high cadence of laser marking so a UHS (Ultra High Speed) head is used which allows working at extreme marking speeds without losing definition in the end result.
