PET marking

Laser marked PET bottle
Plastic drinks bottle with best before date marked by CO2 laser

Plastic bottles are widely used in the soft drinks industry, and are most often made from PET (polyethylene terephthalate), a clear, strong, lightweight and food-safe plastic. CO2 laser codes applied to PET bottles are indelible and tamper-proof. Coding directly on the plastic bottles means that the information is preserved, even if the label is removed.

PET responds particularly well to the 9.3µm wavelength, which makes marks with enhanced contrast and higher visibility. Best before dates, batch codes and other information can be applied on the fly, using a high speed galvo system to track the products on the production line.
