WIDNES, CHESHIRE—DataLase PACKMARK laser marking solution has been trialed successfully by the American Bakers Assn. (ABA) for the marking of variable information on polyethylene bread bags. In four field trials conducted in bakeries, time, date, and expiration codes were laser marked on a blank white panel on the top and end of the bags.
The trials were conducted as part of a project initiated by ABA in February 2005 in response to the pressure put on bakers and their suppliers by strict environmental and food safety regulations requiring an ever-increasing amount of readable information to appear on backed food packages. The initial tests for data dn code marking involved 25 companies and the results were said to be positive.
PACKMARK requires no ink or ribbon and is environmentally friendly and virtually maintenance free.
