Increased demand for late stage customisation and the ability to generate personalised codes on the canning line means it is not solely about the quality of the code, but also the quantity. The F720i fibre laser systems can mark more than 60 characters per can at a line speed of 42,000 cans p/h, and mark over 90,000 cans with the regular number of characters usually applied, which ranges between 10 and 26.
Arguably, the most compelling benefit of fibre laser is environmental performance. Laser does not require any fluid, so waste is not an issue. Deploying a coding and marking system that requires no consumables and reduces waste improves a company's green credentials, while also making a visible commitment to improving the sustainability of beverage canning.
