DLM-BC Pro-N – Plastic caps additive-free laser marking system

 
 

Plastic cap laser marking system

DLM-BC and DLM-CR (Dynamic Laser Marker) series of laser equipment is designed for precise laser marking on the inside or outside surface of the beverage closures of all kinds, including plastic caps, metal closures, synthetic wine corks and crowns. DLM-BC Pro-N is designed for additive-free laser marking on plastic caps and beverage closures. Fully automated feeding and discharging units allow very simple integration of DLM-BC Pro-N into existing production line. With the new special type of UV laser source there is no need to use expensive laser additive in the closures material. This feature allows greatly reduce costs of marking, which gives a good advantage comparing to fiber laser technology.

Plastic caps are transported on the conveyor belt to the marking area where marking process occurs ‘on-the-fly’. Software allows to mark logos, text, QR codes and numbers with randomizing option or numbers increment(decrement) as vector or rasterized graphics. The system can also work with codes database.

Laser marking is a flexible technology that allows you quickly change the job properties and mark unique image or text on every product.
