Specialists in industrial coding and marking using ink jet technology, APS - Alternative Printing Services , has launched the Pharmapack, a coding and marking system specially designed for pharmaceutical printing to provides track and trace solutions.
The Pharmapack coding and marking system addresses the need of ensuring pharmaceutical products are secure and fraud resistant through track and trace systems.
Software generates an individual code for each product which is applied through an integrated coding system. Upon completion of the coding process, the code is read and verified by a camera and stored in a central database to ensure complete traceability.
The Pharmapack's marking system is based on HP thermal ink jet technology. Using fast drying inks, Pharmapack can code on nearly all materials used in the pharmaceutical industry including coated and varnished boxes, and blister and plastic foils.
The Pharmapack coding and marking system has no moving parts, creating a maintenance free printer that requires no fluid other than ink, and needs no regular change of spare parts.
