Industrial Coding on Eggs

Coding technologies for the egg industry have evolved hence coding on egg products has improved simultaneously with it over the years, but the focus on food safety has remained paramount.  Advances in these technologies have provided improved print quality to better communicate important expiry and trace ability data and to help ensure compliance with evolving government regulations regarding producer accountability.  Videojet’s solutions can help meet these coding needs while providing high quality coding to aid brand image and high uptime to ensure efficient operations.

Applications

Overview

Fluid based, non-contact printing of up to five lines of text, linear and 2D bar codes, or graphics, printed on a variety of packaging types including stationary packaging via traversing systems.

A digitally controlled printhead precisely melts ink from a ribbon directly onto flexible films to provide high resolution, real-time prints.

Ink-based, non-contact printing using heat and surface tension to move ink onto a package surface. Generally used to print 2D DataMatrix and other bar codes.

Prints and places labels of various sizes on multiple package types. 

A beam of infrared light focused and steered with a series of carefully controlled small mirrors to create marks where the heat of the beam interacts with the packaging surface.

Ink-based, non-contact printing of multiple data types (alphanumeric, logos and bar codes) in large sizes primarily used for secondary packaging such as cases.
