In a warm, wet—and challenging—coding environment, Pepsi Bottling Ventures counts on Domino’s Fiber Laser to serve up crisp, readable codes, day after day.
“Why does Pepsi use Domino laser coding? Because it works!” –Pepsi Bottling Ventures General Manager Mike Collins
According to Pepsi Bottling Ventures’ Vice President of Engineering Sabri Kundakcioglu, “Quality, productivity and sustainability … these are the three reasons that we converted our can coding to a fiber laser:
- Line efficiency is improved
- Cost of production has been reduced
- Customer complaints about poor printing quality have been reduced.
Our partnership with Domino started way before can coding with fiber technology, but when Domino presented the fiber technology for can coding we didn’t hesitate … and, at the end, we have a great technology working for us.
Is Fiber laser a good can coding option?
It turns out that the Pepsi partnership was one of the cornerstones during the F720i's initial deployment. Today, it, and its less expensive stablemate, the F520i Fiber laser have been deployed in both soft drink and alcohol factories that utilize aluminum can coding in their operation.
During our process, we actually have our lasers built into your existing factory line. For Pepsi Bottling Ventures, we integrated our F720i's directly into no fewer than 16 separate facilities. Pepsi, as with all Beverage manufacturers, have to deal with high temperature changes, resulting high humidity from condensation, dust and more.
As a result, these were amongst the specs built into the capabilities for the 720i before it could be deployed at Pepsi Bottling Ventures.
