Why Iradion

Permanent and Precise Laser Coding and Marking

Traditionally, Inkjet technology is used in the food and beverage industry. However, laser coding and marking is a more cost-efficient and environmentally clean solution. Laser technology requires no consumables like ink and avoids downtime needed to replace these consumables.

Laser coding and marking is a non-contact process that can be used for both static and dynamic production lines. Unlike other technologies that can only process a limited amount of image formats, our laser sources can mark all formats like

Materials & Areas of Application

Laser Coding Food & Beverage Products

Laser coding and marking with our CO2 laser sources is achieved by:

Discover faster and more precise material processing for the following applications:

Plastic bottles running through a laser marking system on the production line.

Plastics Marking

Process plastics such as PET, PVC or polystyrene with precision and no post-processing. Laser mark QR and lot codes for traceability.

Laser marking Organic Materials

Laser marking is a non-toxic process. No inks, solvents, or chemicals are needed. This makes it an environmentally friendly option for marking organic materials.

Markings are clear and permanent.

Laser Coding Cardboard and Paper

Laser coding systems mark cardboard and paper at high speeds, making them ideal for use in production lines. These systems create markings that are clear, permanent, and resistant to smudging, fading, or rubbing off.
