Printing on PET bottles provides a range of manufacturing challenges if the solution is unspecificed. Depending on the application and specifics of the manufacturing facility in question, Domino can draw on its knowledge and experience built over years designing and installing printing equipment at global beverage sites. For printing on PET bottles, Domino's laser marking solutions are frequently chosen. Featuring IP65-rating, Domino's D-Series is designed for the beverage sector's harsh environments - where sugar syrup necessitate regular washdowns but bottle coding and marking uptime is key. It scribes high-quality (frosted) codes onto a range of PET products and PET bottles. Whether carbonated drinks, water or juices need packaging, the wet atmosphere in the production area needs to be considered to ensure the long term productivity of the printing equipment.

Furthermore, lasers offer flexible positioning using the beverage beam delivery for the smallest footprint on both Conveyor and Bottle table applications. Exceptional wavelength capabilities, flexible i-Tech scanhead and unique mirror beam control underpins performance. Modular design enables simple integration into the most challenging PET production lines and the patented i-Tech RapidScan maximises time to code.

Meeting the need for the lowest total cost of ownership, specialised Domino coders supply best before dates and date of manufacture to the neck, shoulder, foot, or behind the main label of a wide range of PET products. Should a continuous ink jet printer be preferred, then Domino's Ax-Series range of printers offer service-free ink system changes, high quality codes via its unique printhead design, as well as the option of remote diagnostics via the Domino Cloud. This Industry 4.0 inspired product allows beverage plant, operations, engineering and production managers to be proactive - versus reactive - to any potential issues facing their PET packaging and processing lines.
