GEA PowerPak series thermoforming machines with laser marking systems

Monday, 13 December, 2021 | Supplied by: GEA Group

GEA has integrated laser marking systems into its PowerPak series of thermoforming packaging machines. The marking system can be used to apply a QR code to the packaging in order to provide information to customers or to keep track of items in the production line.

The lasers can apply the codes at high speeds and in a way that results in largely indelible codes. The application process does not use ink or labels and as such the lasers can provide a sustainable method of marking products. The system is suitable for operation in dusty or moist environments.

The product can be customised to mark items before or after the thermoformer’s sealing, depending on the user’s needs. It can also be used across a range of similar but not identical products, such as items that have slightly different ingredients but the same packaging. This information is accessed from a database and can be changed without altering machinery or materials.

The product is integrated into machines on a user-specific basis.
