Coding on glass
Glass can be coded in various ways. The solution most suitable for your production process depends on various factors, such as the speed of your production line and the number of characters in your desired coding.
Coding directly onto the glass
A laser or an inkjet printer is used to apply coding directly onto glass. Coding with a laser brings with it various benefits. For example, the coding can be created at the same high speeds at which production is carried out in the beverage industry. In addition, the code is indelible. This is important in combating fraud and ensuring traceability. An inkjetprinter is generally cheaper to purchase.
Coding on a label on glass
You can apply a label to the glass. Here, you have a choice between applying a pre-printed label or a label that still needs to be printed on. A combination of the two is also possible. The standard information, such as ingredients, logo and the like are pre-printed, and the information that is subject to change, such as the expiry date, can be printed onto the label during production. A great advantage of using labels is the large quantity of information that can be printed onto the label. The coding on the label can be created by means of a thermal transfer printer and with a laser.
