A coding Solution for every product in the industry
Lightweight rigid and semi-rigid plastics have replaced glass or metal containers as the packaging of choice for many products in the chemical industry. They are also frequently used for industrial components. These lightweight, durable plastics include polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), and high-density polyethylene (HDPE). While the use of rigid and semi-rigid plastics can reduce shipping and handling costs, the different chemical composition of these plastics can affect ink adhesion or the effectiveness of laser coding.

In-process inspection minimizes product waste due to overfill of packaged products, saving costs. It also enables the reworking of product, thereby protecting profits. Processing issues can be identified and rectified to optimize production line efficiencies.
Front-end inspection enables early contamination detection before further value is added to the product, protecting bottom-line profits. This also safeguards equipment downstream from potential damage due to large foreign bodies, such as mineral stones.
End of line inspection delivers peace of mind that the packaged product, leaving the facility, is contaminant-free and adheres to brand integrity requirements. This helps to avoid product recalls and secure repeat business from satisfied customers.
