Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Coding

Print unique codes with thermal inkjet, continuous inkjet or hot foil coders. You can also take carton coding offline with a full feeding, coding and vision system.

We offer a range of coding machinery that you can use to print human and machine-readable information on your packaging materials or medical devices. You can print serialisation codes, lot codes, expiry dates, Unique Device Identification (UDI) codes, 2D data matrix codes and even simple graphics.

Carton Coding and Inspection

The udaFORMAXX carton feeder is a stack-to-stack feeding system that you can use for overprinting folding cartons, crash lock cartons, inserts and other flat-form packs. The standalone system is ideal for coding small batches and different packaging sizes.

The modular design means that you can  incorporate a printer, vision system and reject system to give you complete standalone coding and verification. You can also fit a label applicator.

We can supply our feeding system with the betaJET thermal inkjet or we can fit a printer that you have already validated for use on site. For example, we often fit systems with a Wolke m610. For pharmaceutical companies, we can supply full IQ/OQ documentation.

Flexibility with Continuous Inkjet Coding

Continuous inkjet is a fluid-based, non-contact print technology. It is suitable for printing on non-porous and porous substrates. CIJ can be used for printing on cartons, bottles, vials, labels and for direct printing on fibrous materials.

You can print with a wide range of visible inks or special process inks. UV readable inks are also available for brand protection, internal traceability or brite stock manufacturing applications to identify unlabelled products.

alphaJET continuous inkjet printers offer precision printing, with accurate drop placement, for reliable 2D code printing even in the smallest of spaces.

Excellent Print Quality with Thermal Inkjet (TIJ)

Whether integrated into your production machinery or on the udaFORMAXX carton feeding machine, thermal inkjet offers high quality human and machine-readable printing. With a resolution of up to 600 dpi, TIJ is the ideal technology for printing 2D data matrix codes and other types of barcodes.

Thermal inkjet is a clean, low maintenance technology. There are no moving parts in the ink supply system and the operator can quickly and easily change the print cartridges. With TIJ you can print on a range of substrates including paper, card, plastics, metal and foil.

You can operate up to 4 print heads from a single controller for printing a larger amount of information, or for printing in different locations on one pack.
