Now available from APS - Alternative Printing Services , the Apsolute thermal ink jet printer is ideal for 2D matrix coding within the pharmaceutical industry.
The use of 2D data matrix coding in the pharmaceutical industry is gaining momentum as the requirement to encode large amounts of information in a small space is realised.
With the installation of the Apsolutee thermal ink jet printer from APS - Alternative Printing Services, 2D data matrix codes can be applied to packaging surfaces, allowing pharmaceutical companies to identify their products safely. 2D data coding is characterised by its high density of data and integrated mechanisms of error correction.
The information density of the 2D data matrix codes requires a particularly precise application. Few labelling technologies can print an accurate 2D data matrix code in high resolution, such as laser and inkjet printers. Thermal ink jet printers are inexpensive and user friendly, and thanks to it's fast-drying inks, the Apsolute thermal ink jet printer can print directly onto smooth, non-porous materials such as varnished, coated surfaces and plastics.
This application is advantageous for pharmaceutical companies, as unlike previous systems, coding on pharmaceutical packaging no longer requires the need for unvarnished windows.
