DataLase Limited is at the forefront of the printing revolution, delivering innovative, high speed, high quality, inline digital printing solutions to brand owners and converters.
It is a high growth technology company with an extensive portfolio of products and Intellectual Property in the field of laser reactive colour change materials. Based in the UK, DataLase has business development offices in Boston, USA and Tokyo, Japan. Its extensive strategic coatings, substrate and laser partner network, spread throughout Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia, provides the company with a global reach.
DataLase technology is applied as an ink or coating or incorporated directly into a substrate material. When the coating or substrate is exposed to a low power CO2 laser on a production line, it generates a colour change reaction in the pigment resulting in a high definition, premium quality digital print finish.
The unique combination of the materials in an ink or coating with low power CO2 laser technology produces a digital print performance that exceeds the quality of traditional printing techniques.
The inline technology can be used on both primary and secondary packaging, across virtually any substrate, to print date and lot codes, 2-D data matrix codes, barcodes, images and graphics.
The solution also opens up a wealth of opportunities for printing in applications that have been considered impossible or problematic using traditional techniques.
