Nestlé invests in coding lasers for spring water

Last updated on 04-Aug-2012 at 15:31 GMT2012-08-04T15:31:28Z

Nestlé Group's Carola natural spring water has invested in Domino's D320i scribing lasers.

The high-quality coding equipment was installed into the glass bottling line of the Carola plant in Alsace, eastern France. towards the end of last year.

This year the brand is highlighting its 130+ year heritage by introducing a new visual identity across its entire product range, including its one-litre and 500ml glass bottles.

The water from a spring, located 150m underground, is piped into buffer storage tanks before being bottled, thus controlling consumption and protecting the source. The company produces over 60M bottles a year, 24,000 bottles an hour at peak output.

On the glass bottling line, labels are affixed to bottles as they emerge from the bottling system. The D320i then laser scribes the best before date and time of bottling onto the label.

Carola had been using an original Domino DDC3 dot matrix laser coder to code directly onto its polyethylene terephthalate bottle production line since 2002.
