Title: DEVICE FOR PRINTING CLOSURES OF CLOSED CONTAINERS
Abstract:
A device (100) for printing closures (131) of closed containers (130), comprising a transport section (101) for transporting the containers, wherein a detection unit (102) and a printing unit (103) for printing the closure of a container are arranged behind one another in the transport direction and the detection unit can individually determine the position of the closure transversely with respect to the transport direction for each container and can transmit a signal which is indicative of the position to a control unit (105) which is assigned to the detection unit and the printing unit. The control unit is designed to control the printing unit to apply printing ink to the closure in order to print the closure according to its position. Also disclosed is a corresponding method.
