Videojet Launches the Lightfoot™ Fiber Laser Solution for High-Speed Beverage Canning
An innovative system tailor-made for beverage production.
CHICAGO – January, 2021 — With over 30 years of world-class laser design experience, Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding, marking and printing solutions, is pleased to launch our new Lightfoot™ canning solution. This advanced laser canning solution combines the standard reliability of a Videojet fiber laser with the speed of dual Lightfoot™ marking heads to meet the demanding production needs of beverage canning manufacturers.
Purpose-built for beverage, the Lightfoot™ canning solution is designed with robust components including IP69 rated marking heads and an IP65 rated supply cabinet that can easily handle humid, sugar-laden, or washdown environments. Featuring dual Lightfoot™ marking heads seamlessly integrated with one software control, the Videojet canning solution is able to reach marking speeds of up to 100,000 cans per hour.
Instead of struggling to build a system using multiple suppliers and incompatible components, depend on Videojet to provide everything you need. The Videojet Lightfoot™ canning solution is an all-in-one solution that includes a class 1 sealed enclosure so you can ensure your operators are safe from any optical radiation while an integrated fume extractor keeps operators protected from harmful aluminum dust and fumes. A modular beam shield fits around your conveyor belt so you can easily integrate onto your line. The marking head air knife keeps the beam exit window clean of dust or dirt build-up. Standard industry protocols enable you to connect to common line integration or code management systems.
The Videojet Lightfoot™ canning solution is a fully comprehensive package designed to deliver the quality, safety, and reliability necessary for successful high-speed beverage canning operations. Combined with included VideojetConnect™ Remote Service that provides expert technical support and guidance remotely on-demand as well as ongoing free support from our sample labs should your application or substrate change, Videojet is committed to supporting your production for the lifetime of your printer.
Fiber laser technology is a clean, safe alternative to traditional inkjet coding solution. With minimal maintenance and no ink or solvents, manufacturers can benefit from superior uptime. Additionally, fiber laser codes are precise and permanent so you can consistently meet customer quality requirements. For manufacturers looking to evolve their production coding to laser technology, the Videojet Lightfoot™ canning solution makes the switch seamless.
