Nordson® Ink-Dot I.D. system is useful for identifying which spray machine has coated each can on the assembly line. A small dot of ink is applied on each can's bottom by the system as it gets into the spray machine. The system is perfect for two- and three-piece container operations with aluminum and steel cans.
Every machine on the coating line features a distinct ink color, which leads to a quick identification of the source of improper coatings. This eliminates the difficulty of shutting down all machines on the line for ascertaining the defect-producing machine.
With the Ink-Dot I.D. system, valve module can be replaced without removing the manifold. It is possible to perform enamel-rater and metal exposure tests on actual production cans. The system is configurable for the application of thermal-sensitive inks to the exterior of two- and three-piece food cans.
Labor costs incurred on recurrent testing are reduced thanks to the quicker and improved processes. Colored and UV inks can be easily applied.
