Tiama, Emhart and other major glass industry players are collaborating to define a standard for laser marks on glass containers. This standardization ensures a worldwide unique laser code on each glass container.
To facilitate such a standard, Tiama grants Bucher Emhart Glass a royalty to its patents, which secure the possibility to include information about the originating cavity and/or mould number in the laser mark on the glass container.
This standard code will enable the traceability of each glass container through its whole lifecycle herewith giving many benefits to consumers, glass producers, fillers and other glass industry players. These benefits will increase the competitiveness of glass as the preferred and sustainable packaging material even further.
