Coding and Marking Solutions for Printing on 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 like these can be challenging but is possible with Videojet printing solutions. Mould release agents, if present, should also be considered when selecting the right marking solution..
Continuous Inkjet Printing on Plastic Containers
A variety of Videojet solutions are available depending on the desired mark effect. Our selection of Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) printers provide quality marks on a wide range of plastics, featuring high adhesion inks and oil penetrating inks specifically for plastics.
Laser Marking on Rigid Plastics
Laser marking systems, which deliver permanent but less-noticeable marks, are also an option. Videojet offers a wide laser range including CO2, Fiber and UV to best match laser wavelength with the plastic material.
