Videojet Technologies Inc. introduced a new Lightfoot canning solution, which combines the standard reliability of a Videojet fiber laser with the speed of dual Lightfoot marking heads to meet the demanding production needs of beverage canning manufacturers. Purpose-built for the beverage industry, the Lightfoot canning solution is designed with robust components including IP69 rated marking heads and an IP65 rated supply cabinet that can handle humid, sugar-laden or washdown environments. Featuring dual Lightfoot marking heads seamlessly integrated with one software control, the Videojet canning solution is able to reach marking speeds as fast as 100,000 cans an hour, the company says. The all-in-one canning solution includes a Class 1 sealed enclosure to help ensure that operators are safe from any optical radiation, while an integrated fume extractor protects workers from harmful aluminum dust and fumes. Designed for easy integration, a modular beam shield fits around conveyor belts. Meanwhile, the marking head air knife keeps the beam exit window clean of dust and dirt build-up. The comprehensive package includes VideojetConnect Remote Service and ongoing, free support on using fiber laser technology.
