Bottle and Can Coding
The “Born On” or “Best By” dates you apply to your beverage containers show that you care about your customers. You want your customers to enjoy your beverages at the peak of their freshness and flavor. You should not take the chance that your mark is illegible or incorrect, causing customers to reach for another product. With Matthews’ reliability and secure message formatting, you will be confident that your marking system is providing the right mark every time.
Whether you are looking for inkjet or laser, Matthews can help you find a solution.
- Our small character Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) printers are capable of keeping up with the high speeds of your bottling and canning lines. We offer a variety of inks, including yellow and white pigmented for a contrast on dark glass bottles and cans.
- We also offer laser coding equipment, including one specific for marking PET plastic bottles with a highly visible code without the risk of bottle perforation. Laser coding gives you a quality mark at high speeds, but unlike inkjet it has no ink or solvent consumables eliminating downtime and inventory.
Either way, Matthews has you covered.
