Glass’in® technology results from a collaboration with CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) and is protected by multiple patents.
Glass’in® technology is ink-based. The marking is applied at room temperature.
Athéor® offers you a complete solution consisting of :
- an industrial grade inkjet printer
- Glass’in® ink packaged in one-liter bottles
- Activating system (at room temperature, allows permanent stamping of the ink on the glass packaging)
- The reader to control and retrieve the marking.
The system is positioned directly on the production line and allows you dynamic implementation at up to 400 cycles/mn.
Glass’in® is an alternative to paper labels or femtosecond laser. Thanks to its nature there is no risk of contamination. It is laid down in a nanometric layer on the surface of the packaging , it does not alter the glass packaging nor causes any micro cracks, and is solvent-resistant.
Using printers and optical readers is nothing new to packaging professionals. Thanks to Glass’in® active optical components, legibility of the marking is not affected by the packaging’s or its contents’ colour.
