Unyielding efficiency

Coding and marking of rigid plastic containers

Polyethylene (PE) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) are among the most common plastics used for rigid packaging. With relatively low surface energy, printing on plastic containers can be challenging. Mold release agents, if present, should also be considered when selecting the right marking solution.

Why Leibinger?

Leibinger CIJ printers are ideal for coding onto the irregular surfaces of rigid plastic containers, such as bottles, boxes, lids and egg cartons. Leibinger printers apply a variety of inks, including high-durability and special-adhesion inks to materials including PE, PP, PVC, PC, plastic thermosets, synthetic and natural rubber, acrylic glass, and foam. Black is generally the standard CIJ ink color, although yellow, white or red ink provide improved contrast on dark surfaces. To ensure you have the right ink for the best results, we will provide a printing sample using your preferred material.

Leibinger printers are perfect for coding onto rigid plastic containers:

  • Sealtronic for fast start-up and high productivity
  • Special inks suitable for all types of plastic
  • Pigmented inks for contrast on dark surfaces
  • Suitable for high-speed production
  • IP65 protection available with JET3up PRO
  • Enables full traceability
  • Easy to use, easy to integrate into existing lines

Your industry

Building, construction and garden

Built for the great outdoors

Coding and marking for building, construction and garden

Products and materials used in the building, construction and garden industries need to be built to last – and the same applies to the markings used to provide traceability and regulatory compliance. Many materials in use demand a coding and marking solution that is robust, flexible and hard-working.

Chemicals

Getting the chemistry right

Coding and marking for chemicals

Coding in the chemical industry is important for traceability but it can be challenging when the production environment is hot, dusty or wet. Under such conditions, you can only achieve reliable, high-quality coding with specially designed systems. It can also be difficult to ensure ink adherence on slick plasticizers and to guarantee code resilience in the event of chemical spillage.

Cosmetics and personal care

Take personal care of productivity

Coding and marking for cosmetics and personal care products

Marking cosmetics and personal care products takes place according to an international agreement – referred to as the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) – and applies to both ingredients and fragrances. Additionally, throughout the EU, such articles must have a use-by date if their shelf life is less than 30 months. Coding is also used as an anti-counterfeit measure and to aid traceability.

Detergents, home care and cleaning

A polished performance

Coding and marking for detergents, home care and cleaning products

Cleaning and care products are subject to stringent international directives, which require information such as UFI (Unique Formula Identifier) codes to be printed on the product packaging – whatever shape or type of surface it may be. With packaging ranging from the curved metallic surfaces of spray cans to smooth plastic containers, coding and marking solutions must be flexible and must operate at high speed.

Furniture and toys

Eye-catching quality

Coding and marking for furniture and toys

Furniture and toys come in all shapes, sizes and materials – and high-quality marking is essential for traceability and legal compliance. The wood used in furniture manufacture, in particular, has many different levels of absorbency, which makes durable, legible printing a challenge.

Medical technology

Just what the doctor ordered

Coding and marking for medical technology

The packaging of medical products – and the products themselves – requires high-quality marking of variable data. The focus is on legibility and contrast, which is indispensable for traceability and compliance with legal requirements. At the same time, competitive pressure in the medtech market means that manufacturers must maximize production line speed.

Plastics

Our experience makes the difference

Coding and marking for plastics

Plastic and rubber articles, including plastic film, are used in many areas such as the pharmaceutical, food, packaging, cable, electrical and electronics industries. Producers of plastic and plastic items often need to code information onto products to enable traceability and to provide a guarantee of quality.
