More than a quarter of a million systems installed in less than 30 years
Since its establishment at the end of the 1960s through to Videojet’s vision of today, there have been more than 30 years of innovation, development, manufacturing and sales of high-quality coding technology. In Europe as well, Videojet has been a reliable partner for effective marking solutions for almost 30 years.
Videojet’s success story in Europe began in the beverage industry. Since then, coding systems have continued to be developed and Videojet has established itself as a leading supplier in Europe. Since the beginning of the new millennium, Videojet has continually expanded its range and its business. Over the past 5 years, the company has become a full-line supplier in the area of industrial coding and offers systems from today’s popular technologies: inkjet, laser, micro-nozzle, thermal transfer, labelling, piezo, thermal inkjet and binary array. Our solutions for industrial graphics and addressing systems round off the range on offer.
With numerous world premieres, Videojet continues to reposition itself in the market and offers its customers extremely innovative solutions. In the interest of our customers, we also offer product and investment security, which is the result of our many years of experience in marking systems.
Continuous Inkjet Coding Machines
Ideal for marking on flat or curved surfaces, continuous inkjet printing is a non-contact printing method that can utilise a range of continuous inkjet inks to print on almost any substrate. With over 40 years of development experience, Videojet offers a range of CIJ solutions and thorough application knowledge to help you identify the right printing solutions for your needs.
Laser Marking Machines
Laser Marking System
Laser marking and coding is a non-contact printing method that offers an advantage over other technologies including mark quality, permanence and fewer consumables. Videojet’s line of laser marking systems includes CO2, Fiber and YAG laser sources in different power outputs to address a range of substrates and applications. In addition, Videojet offers a comprehensive portfolio of laser accessories including lenses and beam turning units to simplify integration into your production lines and maximise the laser’s performance.
Printing on PET bottles
PET Bottle Printing
Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) has long been used as a liquid container in the carbonated soft drink, bottled water, energy and fruit drinks markets due to its inherent properties of strength, flexibility and transparency. Additionally, PET bottles are gaining popularity over materials like HDPE for packaging consumer products such as shampoo.
Videojet’s application expertise in PET marking spans many years, including indepth knowledge of trends such as lightweighting. PET bottles are most commonly marked using Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) and laser printing solutions. Videojet offers a number of unique ink formulations that provide quality ink jet codes on PET and laser systems for high resolution, permanent marks.
Printing on metal and aluminium cans
Aluminium and Metal Can Printing
Aluminium canning operations are among the fastest packaging lines in the world and require specialised equipment. Metal cans are widely used with shelf-stable foods and when products require retorting, specialised colour-changing inks serve as a visual quality control indicator that the products have successfully completed the process.
Videojet offers printing solutions to match the demands of these applications, including ultra high speed printer options. Coupled with a comprehensive range of high speed and thermochromic inks, Videojet brings over 40 years of canning application expertise to our customers. In addition, high powered fiber lasers offer unique marking options for specific metal canning applications.
Printing on plastic rigid containers
Polyethylene (PE) and High-density polyethylene (HDPE) are among the most common plastics used for rigid packaging. With relatively low surface energy, these plastics can be challenging to mark. Mold release agents, if present, should also be considered when selecting the right marking solution.
A variety of Videojet solutions are available depending on the desired mark effect. Our selection of inks for Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) printers provide quality marks on a wide range of plastics, including high adhesion inks and oil penetrating inks specifically for plastics. Laser systems, which deliver permanent but less-noticeable marks, are also an option. Videojet offers a wide laser range including CO2, Fiber and UV to best match laser wavelength with the plastic material.
