Carlsberg Sweden Selects the Domino F720i Fibre Laser for Innovative Beverage Can Coding
"Carlsberg has two production units in Sweden, Falkenberg and Ramlosa, producing 3 million hectoliters yearly, with a can line that runs 90,000 cans an hour. For this application Carlsberg Sweden selected the Domino F720i fibre laser for its high speed capability and ability to print on beverage cans without using any chemicals or fluids. The laser is in a demanding environment with both water and high humidity, temperature differences in summer and winter. It is important that the laser can manage these conditions, we needed a reliable coding system." – Ove Danielsson Carlsberg Sweden
Indelible laser marking on aluminium cans opens up the possibilities for promotional coding as a value add to your product. Even on the concave base of the beverage can the Domino F720i Fibre Technology displays unrivalled code quality.
The F720i is Domino’s latest addition to its range of high performance, high speed fibre lasers. Designed to deliver clear, legible and durable codes on aluminium cans, and with an IP65 rating, the F720i fibre laser is especially suited to withstand the harsh production environments and high speed coding demands of the beverage canning sector.
Capable of delivering high quality codes at line speeds of 600 m/min. The unique 3D power concentration can achieve this kind of superior coding through coding with short and intense pulses, which significantly increases the marking speed while also resulting in a high resolution mark even on the most challenging of surfaces, such as the concave surface of the bottom of a can.
