Carlsberg’s Cutting-Edge Beverage Production in Sweden

Carlsberg, a Danish-based brewer, has two beverage production units in Sweden. One is in Falkenberg on the east coast of the Kattegat sea and the other, further south in Ramlosa. In all, these two production units produce 3 million hectolitres yearly. This large-capacity factory also features a can line that runs 90,000 cans an hour.

For this application, Carlsberg selected Domino's F720i fibre Laser for its high-speed capability and specific ability to print on beverage cans. The laser operates in a demanding environment with both water and high humidity, as well as temperature differences in summer and winter.


Adverse Conditions

Unlike the controlled environment of a Domino lab, when one of our fibre lasers is deployed in a factory, it is important that the laser can manage these demanding conditions.

In order to deploy its codes, the F720i generates a highly-focused laser beam, distributed in short pulses. The speed of the bursts is key and ensures the high-speed requirements of the beverage canning industry.


Real World Application, Real World Results

The Carlsberg plant, with its high yearly production yield, was a perfect real-world application to show the can coding capabilities of our laser solutions. Don't just take our word for it, take Carlsberg Sweden's.

"We needed a reliable coding system. The laser allows us to use fewer chemicals and solvents, which is in line with Carlsberg’s environmental awareness. The Domino F720i is a product that works well on our can line." – Ove Danielsson, Carlsberg Sweden


The F720i laser set the foundation for our high-speed, reliable, and advanced beverage can printing solutions. Expanding on this success, Domino introduced the BCCS, which improves safety, efficiency, and performance. This solution offers a safer work environment, code validation through Domino vision systems, as well as rejection and code automation, all integrated within the Domino framework. This development aims to establish practical industry standards and reinforce Domino's commitment to innovation in printing solutions, laying the groundwork for our upcoming groundbreaking launch for beverage can coding.
