Domino is today launching the F720i, the latest addition to its range of high performance, high speed fiber lasers on its stand S-3536 at PackExpo 2016 in Chicago, USA. Designed to deliver clear, legible and durable codes on to aluminium cans, and with a high IP rating, the new F720i fiber laser is particularly suited to withstand the harsh production environments and high speed coding demands of the beverage canning sector.
Central to the appeal of the F720i is its IP65 rating and robust design, which is capable of maintaining continuous output in extremely harsh, humid and temperature-challenging production environments of up to 45⁰C/ 113⁰F.
Developed to maintain superior levels of flexibility and coding quality at unmatched high speed, the F720i applies standard codes at a rate of 90,000 cans per hour and has the capability to deliver complex codes and promotional data of more than 60 characters at a rate of 42,000 cans per hour. The new solution can maintain these exceptional coding speeds and quality of output even on the concave surfaces of the can bases.
Unlike conventional fibre lasers, the 3D power concentration of the F720i generates a highly focused beam which is being distributed in short intense pulses resulting in an increase of the marking speed. Its unique design and unrivalled optical laser beam quality enables it to create the finest, yet robust characters with greater resistance to vibrations or water condensation, limiting downtime and eliminating waste through lost production.
Commenting on the launch of the new F720i fiber laser, Jon Hall Laser Product Marketing Manager said, "At Domino, we are continually looking to set new industry standards with our laser coding technology, and the introduction of the F720i continues to stretch the boundaries of innovation to deliver ever greater operational efficiencies for our customers."
Jon Hall continues, "The F720i not only meets current coding demands within the beverage canning sector, it also provides the flexibility to cater to future customer requirements. These include even faster production speeds, more intricate and detailed promotional marketing codes, as well as meeting key legislative requirements for clear, legible and long lasting characters."
