Here's how the Lid punching machine operates

The paper is fed into the thermal transfer printer via an unwinding unit, where a lot number and best-before date are printed onto it. This step does not happen if the colour sensor detects coloured tape. If it does, the machine doesn’t print anything.

The lid then passes under a camera which checks if the lids contain the correct data and material codes. This Optical Character Recognition (OCR) check recognises the text and, based on that, makes the decision to punch the lid. If necessary, the lid is also perforated. Lids then enter the warehouse.

If a lid has been rejected by the Vision System or has coloured tape used to stick various rolls together, it is not punched out but sent to the waste bin together with the remnants of the roll. This process is called Splice detection.


  • Total solution for punching, perforating, and printing
  • Maximum diameter of 400 mm
  • Comprehensive control system using Vision checks
