Technologies to code on metal cans and caps

Specialized inks and permanent codes ensure safety and traceability in the food and beverage industries

Your challenges

Metal cans are fully recyclable and offer both sterility and long shelf life for canned food, pet food, and beverages. These factors make them a top choice for packaging in the food and beverage industries.

Our offer

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.
