Our continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers suitable for coding on bare metal in the food and beverage industries include the 9029 and the top-of-the-line 9450 models. Specialized color-change inks are available and can serve as a visual quality control indicator that metal cans filled with food have successfully completed the high-pressure sterilization process. Inks visible only in UV light are also available as an anti-counterfeiting measure.
Alternatively, our SmartLase F500 laser coder is specially designed for high-speed beverage can lines and reduces operating expenses thanks to its ink-free operation. Laser coders produce the sharp, permanent codes ideal for traceability and anticounterfeiting measures.
