At a bottling plant, a mineral water bottle speeds along a conveyor belt moving at 36 km/h. A few milliseconds later, the best-before date appears on the bottleneck.
This is made possible by Leibinger’s JET3up industrial inkjet printer, which prints up to 2000 products per minute with flying drops of ink.
Information such as best-before date, batch number and data matrix codes have become an integral part of most products. The small letters and graphics are on water bottles, milk cartons and beverage cans, on printed circuit boards for computers and on transparent medication packaging.
