One of its main customers (El Corte Inglés) requested the traceability of each product. Vicente Peris needed a coding supplier which could deliver a solution.
Macsa proposed to mark directly with a laser system. Laser coders are compact and provide clean, indelible marks and codes, use no consumables, can mark alphanumeric codes and logos and can be fully integrated in a manufacturing process at really high speeds. They cost little to operate and are extremely reliable and, what is more significant, add no additives to the fruit.
Macsa installed a K1060 high speed laser coder with 100*100mm lenses to print on the melons and watermelons. Its technicians looked for a specific point where the needed focal distance did not vary so much due to the different fruit shapes. After some adjustments the laser marked at 40m / minute and allowed Macsa’s customer to track every product.
