Aluminum cans have remained a popular choice for packaging beverages, particularly carbonated drinks. Aluminum cans provide good barrier protection and are 100% recyclable. However, coding on these packages can be a challenge due to metal finishes and curved surfaces. Videojet coding solutions help enable maximization of line efficiency, especially meeting the high speed applications and coding on concave bottoms of cans
