Tiama, Emhart and other major glass industry players are collaborating to define a standard for laser marks on glass containers.

This standardisation ensures a unique laser code on each glass container around the world.

To facilitate such a standard Tiama has granted Bucher Emhart Glass a royalty to its patents, which secures 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. It will give benefits to consumers, glass producers, fillers and other glass industry players.

The two companies said these benefits will increase the competitiveness of glass as a preferred and sustainable packaging material even further.
