01 Base case
Transparent packaging made of PE, PP and PET with various bottle shapes are marked with a3 - line marking including product name, batch number and expirydate.
All products were marked from above with black ink. Acompetitor´s continuous ink jet is integrated into a conveyor belt that runs up to 30 m/min.
The odor nuisance emanating from the existing system caused enormous problems. Although an extraction system was installed, the strong smell emission was no longer acceptable to the employees.
02 So simple yet standard
All alphaJET inkjet printers from Koenig & Bauer Coding GmbH are equipped with RE-SOLVE Ultra (solvent recovery) as standard.
With a solvent consumption of less than 2 ml/h (at 20°C temperature), the alphaJET is therefore also the cleanest and most economical continuous inkjet on the market worldwide.
The results are minimal emission and operation costs with positive effects for:
- The employees working atthe production line
- The procurement manager
- The company
The odor nuisance is a thing of the past, now. The employee on the production line feels valued by improvement of his working environment.
The purchaser, who always has to keep an eye on follow-up costs for operating materials, saves the maximum on solvents. After only 0.7 years, the breakeven point is reached. After 5 years the savings are over € 10,000.
The company is pleased about satisfied employees who demonstrably have less sick days.
