Marking Pet Snacks Efficient and Sustainable

CO2 laser marks permanently and with low maintenance


Laser | Marking of primary packaging

The sales growth of snacks for dogs and cats is steadily increasing. The appealing packaging for the delicious treat often plays a decisive role in the purchase decision. In addition, pet lovers are increasingly turning to sustainable products for their furry friend. This megatrend is also gaining ground in the production of pet food.   





Laser | Permanent marking without consumables

In many cases, thermal transfer or wax printers are or were used for marking foils, film or cartons. These systems require regular consumables for each marking.
Laser marking, on the other hand, does not require any consumables.

In addition, they require much more maintenance than marking lasers. Necessary repairs are usually associated with high costs. 

A German company specialising in snack products for dogs and cats with three modern production sites is now successively switching the marking of its products to marking lasers from Koenig & Bauer Coding.
