Household Care Industry Laser System

Manufacturers of household care products (detergents and other cleaning products) must code the packaging of their products. The specifics of the code depend on national or other legislation but generally a lot code and a best before date are required.

Lasers are used to apply such codes because of their ability to mark paper and board, glass and the plastics typically used in packaging.

They are an attractive alternative to inkjet (continuous and thermal) because they are clean, reliable and low cost.

Case Studies : Cotyastor, S.A.

Bearing in mind the needs expressed by Coty’s office Macsa decided to go for laser coding. All Coty’s concerns regarding image and style of the product were cleared up by a laser marking. The Macsa laser printed all the necessary information with a high quality and at the same time enabled Coty to change and create new labels the fastest and easiest possible way, avoiding labeling storage and promoting the quick changes in the basis of production needs.

The installation comprised 5 K-1030 Plus Macsa lasers plus software and a PC panel. Four lasers were installed to code on the crystal bottom and the fifth the lot number directly on the perfume case. All the coding processes were controlled directly from the PC, registering the product to be code with the software and selecting the product reference automatically; all this data was sent to be marked at the bottom of the bottles and also the batch number to the case.

Why choose Macsa lasers? “We were pleased with Macsa, it is a company committed to production quality and product traceability. We value so much its capacity of giving us accomplished and worthy solutions”.

Case Studies : BDF Nivea



BDF Nivea has recently been looking for an alternative coding supplier. It has been marking with ink-jet systems but decided to replace them and use laser marking systems.

Macsa presented first its Flymark 30w CO2 lasers. Fully satisfied with its choice BDF Nivea decided to complete another line with the purchase of a K1060 PLUS super high speed laser system.

The Macsa K-1060 PLUS super high speed is the solution for marking products at super high speed with very clear messages and at minimal operational costs. The products are marked with a high quality and guarantee permanent and accurate identification.

This has operated to L’Oréal’s complete satisfaction. During the last few years l’Oréal has been renewing its coding systems with F-1030 CO2 laser systems and also a D-5010 YAG laser system.
