Virtual labelling

Monday, 17 January, 2005 | Supplied by:

With the development of DataLase, Sherwood Technology has produced a virtual labelling technique that eradicates the need to use adhesive labels on packaging.

The application allows images such as barcodes, two-dimensional codes, logos, graphics, etc to be imaged by a low power CO2 laser directly onto any surface, eliminating the need to print and apply labels.

The virtual label becomes an integral part of the packaging and, unlike conventional labels, will not peel or fall off.

This latest application is expected to benefit industries which use labels on packaging, such as food and beverage and pharmaceutical.

The labelling uses a non-toxic and environmentally friendly ink, coating, or substrate additive that produces a positive image when marked by a low power CO2 laser. The ink, coating or additive undergoes a chemical colour change and creates an image that is stable and has high contrast.
