Chemicals & Petrochemicals

100% permanent, readable codes, even in the harshest production and usage environments
Printing on chemical containers are very common coding and marking applications for plastic bottles and metal containers. Marking on plastic and metal containers must meet certain standards and requirements that depend on the material, the speed of the production line, and the intended use of a product.
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.

Continuous InkJet Printers (CIJ)
Our CIJ printers can print up to 20% faster than other competitive models. Specialty inks are available in multiple colors, including a one-fits-all silver ink and a selection of MEK-free inks that will guarantee high contrast codes on a wide variety of substrates. It can print 3,000 km of cable without requiring printhead cleaning and is able to print precise, perfect codes on even the smallest wires, down to 1 mm.
Laser High-Speed Printing
The SmartLase laser portfolio provides a cost-efficient solution for coding on most cable, wire, pipes and plastics materials at high speeds. The SmartLase C350 and F500 coders produce permanent codes that will not fade or rub off over time, and the coders are available in four different wavelengths, to meet variable needs regarding permanency, visibility, fluid resistance, and the chemical composition of the substrate, plastic or metal.
Product Inspection
Minimize Overfill to Reduce Waste

Using a dynamic checkweighing
system ensures each individual
product is inspected to guard
against under- or over-weight,
and comply with Weights and
Measures legislation.

Foreign Body Detection and Rejection

Metal detection, Optical sorting and x-ray
inspection systems find
and remove foreign body
contaminants to ensure the
highest quality

Package Integrity Inspection
Packaging errors increase costs and can damage a manufacturer’s reputation. Our advanced checkweighing, x-ray and vision inspection technologies perform package integrity checks to identify quality issues and ensure non-compliant product is removed before they reach the supply chain.

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.
