We are packing our bags and getting ready to visit Munich for drinktec 2017 - the world’s largest trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry. If you’re connected to the beverage industry here are five reasons you should come too.
1. Conquer your challenges
We know success in the beverage industry is built on slim margins. Speed and efficiency are crucial watchwords. Let us show you how Domino can help you stay one step ahead of your challenges: maintaining high line speeds and minimising downtime. Coding in harsh production environments. Embracing technology that allows you to be flexible with new products or production processes.
drinktec features experts from all over the world who are eager to share their knowledge and ideas. It’s a forum to discuss challenges and find novel ways of solving them. And it’s a catalyst of innovation and development, with progressive new technology around every corner.
2. Experience the power of fibre laser coding technology
Have you heard of Carlsberg? Of course, you have. Well, our newest fibre laser technology is helping them add traceability coding onto beverage cans at line speeds of 90,000 cans per hour. (Read the case study here.)
The revolutionary F720i fibre laser makes it easier than ever before to apply high-resolution codes and logos to cans - even on concave surfaces. With its robust design and IP65 rating, its purpose built to withstand harsh production environments and delivers flawless coding at line speeds of 600m/min. The unique 3D power concentration achieves superior code quality through short and intense pulses, which significantly increases marking speed while also resulting in a high-resolution mark.
You can experience its power and reliability at Hall A2, Stand 439 in the Messe Munich exhibition centre.
Speed, efficiency, reliability - it’s got the lot. But the F720i isn’t the only technology we have that can improve the productivity of businesses in the beverage industry. There’s a lot more. Here at Domino Printing Sciences, we have an established reputation as a global leader in coding and printing technologies.
3. Learn how to achieve error-free coding and easy system integration
You want to invest in progressive technology to make your business more productive, more efficient and more profitable. That means having a smart, interconnected network of machines and processes that centralise and simplify coding procedures and enable error-free coding and easy system integration.
At drinktec, we will be showcasing our Domino Cloud and i-Techx platform that can help you to achieve integration with factory automation for improved OEE.
4. Code onto wet substrates
Domino will also feature two new inks for the beverage sector, designed for coding substrates where a layer of moisture is present. The i-Pulse yellow ink (2YL855), with its high contrast on dark substrates, is designed for marking coloured returnable glass bottles, while the i-Pulse black ink (2BK156), a fast-dry black ink, has been developed for coding onto both PET and clear returnable glass bottles.
Come and see us on our stand to find out more.
5. Raise a glass to the future
The beverage industry moves fast. Consumer preferences change. Legislation moves forward. Disruptive new technology forces change to production methods. It’s a constant state of flux. drinktec is a great place to horizon scan for upcoming challenges in the sector and see tomorrow’s technology in action today.
We’d like to invite you to raise a glass with us in Munich at Hall A2, Stand 439 and experience how Domino’s coding solutions can benefit your coding and marking needs.
