Marking and Coding on Aluminum Beverage Cans

Videojet high speed lasers and inkjet printers: Ideal for marking on cans

Aluminum cans have remained a popular choice for packaging beverages, particularly carbonated drinks. Aluminum cans provide good barrier protection and are 100% recyclable. However, coding on these packages can be a challenge due to metal finishes and curved surfaces. Videojet coding solutions help enable maximization of line efficiency, especially meeting the high speed applications and coding on concave bottoms of cans

Recommended technologies for aluminum

Continuous Inkjet (CIJ)

  • meets the needs of high speed can applications, including coding on the concave bottom of aluminum cans
  • broadest portfolio in the industry with over 175 ink offerings including odorless and non-MEK ink

Laser Marking Systems

A beam of infrared light focused and steered with a series of carefully controlled small mirrors to create marks where the heat of the beam interacts with the packaging surface. Delivers clear, permanent codes on nearly any color of aluminum.
