PACK EXPO - Videojet Partners with Sun Chemical to Showcase SunLase Laser Marking Solution at Pack Expo 2015

SunLase, at Pack Expo 2015, September 28-30, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

LAS VEGAS--Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding, marking and variable data printing solutions, will partner with Sun Chemical to demonstrate an on-pack laser marking solution, SunLase, at Pack Expo 2015, September 28-30, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

SunLase, a transparent or tinted coating that is pre-printed onto packaging material, enables brand owners to add information after the filling and closure of the pack. The SunLase patch changes to black as it reacts to CO2 or fiber lasers. The result is a clear, crisp bar code, logo or text on the package.

"Whether marking cases and cartons for supply chain management, track and trace requirements or late-stage pack differentiation, brand owners are demanding the flexibility and variable data that lasers can provide," said Peter Lindstrom, North American Product Manager for Videojet. "With SunLase technology, our lasers produce an enhanced mark quality for excellent readability throughout the supply chain."

At Pack Expo, Videojet will showcase the SunLase solution with the Videojet 3330 laser marking system. This high performance CO2 laser delivers a powerful combination of performance and flexibility for high resolution marking on cases and cartons running at moderate to high speeds. Its 21 mark field and focal distance combinations help produce complex, permanent codes.

"Both long and short-run operations can enjoy the flexibility to add information like ingredients, logos, bar codes and other tracking information to packaging late in production," Lindstrom said. "As a solvent and ink-free solution, laser marking offers additional advantages including low odor and low consumables. We are proud to partner with Sun Chemical to provide our customers with the operational and functional benefits of SunLase technology and Videojet laser marking systems."

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
