    put your printer on your post fill conveyance, with some air knives. We use the DICS from Ska Fab, it works like a champ.

    This is a picture showing the conveyor coming through the air knife cage. This is a bolt on solution that is easily implementable. We make a custom bracket for the Markem Imaje print head so it integrates effortlessly into the line.

    Dating on Small Canning lines

    Hey

    So, you are having problems dating in the rinse cage or on or around the WGC 250. We have found that dating in the rinse cage can only provide about 75% accuracy. The best way to do it, if you are alright missing some cans here and there (not good) , is to print below the exit of the rinse cage, yet mount your sensor on the WGC250 conveyor. This gives you better speed consistency and accuracy, but you still aren't gonna get it perfect.
    The best way to do it is post fill on a conveyor by either flipping the can($$$) or using the divert method we developed at Ska Fab:

    Here is a link to the video

    Thanks!
