Marking fruits and vegetables

D+E GmbH has technically enhanced a natural method to mark produce without the use of chemical additives, packaging material, or stickers. The new fully-automatic EcoMark NB 3002 laser machine removes only the pigments of the outer peel (image) without affecting food quality or taste. Natural branding is a response to more stringent organic food regulations. The NB 3002 increases productivity through automation. It marks single products or entire boxes. Labelling times are possible in as little as 0.3 seconds per logo. The new user-friendly software allows a different product setting to be configured with just a few clicks. Marking takes place “on the fly” without stopping. The NB 3002 can be integrated into existing operations to achieve substantial time savings.
