In the case of pharmaceutical tablet packaging in blister packages, quite often, the complete printed information is printed as a last step in the automated packing operation. Pharma and nutraceutical products can be required to carry complex serialized tracking information on each package. Such information allows for product tracking down to the smallest unit of sale anywhere in the world. This requirement makes it necessary for information to be changed within almost every print image, and that changing information must be associated to a specific package in the final stages of packaging.
The “printing” or “coding” of web/roll form/flexible packaging materials can thus have very different meanings and requirements. A single “Use By” code on an individual snack food bag, or 8 codes across a web to code multiple yogurt cups or meat packages, or multiple pill pack lid stock impressions printed across a web of foil all fall into this “printing” or “coding” category. But all require very different printing or coding systems in order to be an efficient component of an automated packaging operation.
The printers we have shown in this category cover virtually every type of coding or printing need for such flexible, roll form, web materials. Call Griffin-Rutgers Co. and allow us to apply our over 50 years of experience in this field to help you find a proper solution to your need.

When it comes to product labeling, while there are synergies across some industries, many labeling functions are industry-specific depending upon the type of products that are being packaged. Because there is such a wide range of product labeling applications, there are a myriad of specialized machines in kind designed to handle specific and varied requirements relative to product shape, size, production speed, label substrates, shapes and designs, possibly data to be imprinted and volume of printing that is needed.
