Daily Use Industry
OverviewWith the development of daily-use necessities, foodstuffs and pharmaceuticals, marking machine plays an important role on the production line. In order to avoid counterfeit and manage the regional sales effectively, manufacturers identify their own products with high-tech anti-counterfeiting.
Although inkjet marking machines are now in common use, some problems are continuously emerging:
● Traditional printing equipments consume large amounts of inks, which causes high costs;
● Professionals are required because of the nozzle blockage by inks;
● Indigent product styles and easy-to-erase markers will affect product credibility;
● With the enhancement of environmental consciousness, people have higher demands on safety and pollution;
According to further investigations, we find that these issues are mainly due to the current outdated inkjet marking machines. With unique anti-counterfeiting, the laser marking machine has become popular gradually.
As the leader of laser industry, HGLASER aims to promote the application of laser marking machine in industries and provide the full range of solutions.
The latest laser solution of HGLASER can help the enterprise respond to the market rapidly. With a new marking method, the solution highlights the characteristics of the products and the differences of the brands, enhances the competitiveness of the products, shortens the upgrade period of products and provides powerful tools for flexible production.
In daily-use necessities, foodstuffs and pharmaceuticals packing, the main processing machines are inkjet marking machine and laser marking machine. By analyzing the production enterprise operating costs and typical examples, and comparing these two methods, customers will realize the development tendency.
Inkjet Marking Machine
Principle: The nozzle is composed of several high precision valves. Depends on the internal constant pressure, the inks spray on the moving surface and form the characters or graphics.
Nowadays, human awareness of environmental protection and resource utilization has reached an unprecedented height. There is a general agreement that trying to eliminate the backward machines, which caused serious environmental pollution and wasted a lot of resources, has become a global consensus.
As an old machine, inkjet marking machine has problems in pollution, consumption, breakdown and maintenance cost. Especially the chemical pollution will cause harm to environment and operators. So it is hard to keep pace with the development of the industry.
● The ink and solvent are volatile, will produce much chemical poisonous residue harmful to environment;
● The inkjet marking machine consumes a large amount of inks, which causing high costs;
● The machine nozzle will be blocked due to the change of environmental temperature, humidity and dust, which may cause frequent breakdown.
● The costs of changing nozzles and other accessories are too high.
Laser Marking Machine
Compared with inkjet marking, the laser marking is more advanced. The application of laser marking machine begins in recent years and develops very quickly. It greatly solves the problems of traditional inkjet marking machine, and offers much more flexibility and reliability, is suitable for all kinds of soft packaging materials.
Principle: Laser marking is local irradiation in substances with high energy laser beam to make it evaporate rapidly and color change by physical or chemical reaction. With the method of computer cartography, laser processing can make all kinds of graphics and wordings. So the laser marking is the safest food marking equipment.
