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.
Flexible Printing, Coding and Marking News
As a kid, do you remember trying to get a square peg into a round hole? You sure were determined, weren’t you? For many companies, that’s what it feels like with certain package types. The truth is, not every item has the perfect shape and size to make labeling easy. Often, labeling systems are simply not designed for packages and labeling needs that are outside the “norm.”
All Re-Pack labelers can be equipped with the Re-Pack Fault Warning Package of controls. This optional Series 3 warning system identifies operational fault states of the labeler and alerts line personnel with the illumination of color stack lights indicating the system status.
Labels can be printed right on-line and applied to cartons on any surface of the carton while it is in motion. This video demonstrates an application method that applies the two panel label to the front and top panels of the moving carton. The label is wrapped around the desired corner of the carton to […]
When comparing print and apply labeling systems, two important facets to consider are cost and capabilities. These two mission-critical parameters will ascertain if the unit under consideration will fulfill your distinct business objectives while remaining within your targeted budget. Print and apply labeling systems are ideal for those environments where labels must be printed on pallets or shipping cases as well as primary packaging applications like those within the baking and snack industries. But, all are not created equal.
Re-Pack three roller indexing labeling systems are those designed to “orient a cylindrically shaped item and apply a wrap-around label.” In this labeling process, the label application is accurately aligned to a specific spot on the individual product item. This unique labeling process can be accomplished with a fully automated, in-line system or as an […]
The Mini-Panel labeling system is one of those technologies that continues to evolve. It currently offers the flexibility of using one or two labeling heads and can be used offline (semi-automatically) or can be integrated into a production line (fully automated). Many manufacturers might consider a mini labeling system to be an “entry level” device, […]
This video is a demonstration of the small item labeling capability of the Robo Wrap System. This compact, table top designed labeling system is able to hold small cylindrical vials in close control so that accurate label placement is achieved consistently. Numerous options are available to customize this system for installation in pharmaceutical manufacturing environments […]
