Fast, accurate bottle coding


Designed for accuracy, quality, line efficiency and ease-of-use, the Markem-Imaje SmartLase series offers the ideal solution for coding on lightweight PET bottles with no risk of piercing, even when the walls of the bottle are very thin.

Whether you’re coding mineral water, carbonated soft drinks, edible oils or other bottled beverages, this innovative machine offers patented SmartLase Code Technology to deliver high contrast codes at high speeds. Scribe impeccable lines, curves, points and bold character effects faster than ever before, even when the bottle is shaking.

“Our latest laser technology is an ideal solution to code on PET, not only to meet traceability and anti-diversion requirements with legible and permanent marking, but it also addresses the needs of high speed production lines,” explains Sylvain Clément, Markem-Imaje’s Beverage Marketing Manager.
