Laser marking coated paper or cardstock-based packaging is perfect for food, cereal, film, pharmaceutical, and health care products because the 10.6-µm carbon dioxide wavelength fully ablates the inked coating down to the paper surface leaving a crisp, clean, high-contrast mark. UK distributor Laser Lines Ltd offers the complete range of Synrad CO2 lasers which are ideally suited to this application.
For products where lot numbers or expiration dates are mandated, laser marking during the actual packaging process eliminates the need to manage an inventory of pre-printed materials. Further savings are realised because laser marking does not require the consumables and maintenance overhead associated with other marking or labelling processes such as inkjet and thermal printers where make-up ink and transfer tape are reoccurring costs.
