NATURAL BRANDING BY EcoMark
With Natural Branding, only the topmost cell layer of the skin is depigmented, and only the outermost layer of the peel is removed, so that the product is not affected or damaged. There are no restrictions at all for foodstuffs, including organic products. Absolutely no chemical additives, packaging materials or stickers are used in the procedure. This is the simplest way of responding to increasing packaging costs.
The machines in the NB series have been developed based on a modular principle. The entry machine is fitted with a conveyor belt so that objects can be marked “on the fly” without stopping. The products can therefore be displayed individually or set out in containers or crates. The camera automatically recognises the position and alignment of the products. The information is transmitted to the laser in just a few milliseconds, and each product is marked according to pre-set criteria. All machines can automatically balance height differences of 44 mm (+/- 22 mm).
Depending on the space conditions or product range, the machine can be adapted to special requirements. Not only do we optimise the laser process but we also consider the processes in front of and behind the machine. With individually coordinated feed and discharge systems, we optimise the entire process and reduce the greatest cost driver, i.e. staff costs, to a minimum. We therefore offer the best solution for our customers. If the requirements change over the course of time, the machine can have further modules added subsequently.
Different laser strengths are available, and the machine can be fitted with a laser output of 30 W or up to 120 W, depending on requirements. Consistent further development has enabled us to fit our machines with a fast 3D camera. Process times of 0.1 seconds per product are therefore possible, and up to 50,000 items can be lasered per second.

Feed and discharge
Many make it complicated – we prefer to make it simple for you. And we rely completely on user-friendly software. This is easy to use and enables production changes with just a few clicks. Parameters are set for this, which can be called up in a few seconds. Small corrections to new batches are carried out in the blink of an eye.
FLEXIBLE FOR MARKETING
Marketing promotions boost sales – and thanks to our machines, they can be communicated directly on the products. The same applies to promotional logos or other messages that you would like to bring to customers. We will be pleased to support you. Just ask us. We are sure to have the right solution.
LOWER CO2 EMISSIONS
Many customers ask us how much CO2 can be saved using our technology. The answer to this is very simple. Ultimately, many parameters play a part here. But we can tell you this much: one of our biggest customers made a post-calculation. With the branding of ginger alone, they were able to save 68,000 kg of packaging material in a year. This corresponds to around 310 tonnes of CO². Or 2.5 million kilometres driven in an average car.
