Printing on Medical Supplies
Batch numbering and expiration date coding is critical for manufacture of medical supplies and also to enable product traceability. Coding of the specific production batch is essential for all relevant issues of control, but often manufacturing particulars can also be identified from the batch number. Date coding can also enable the end user to validate that a product is still within its usable life and has not passed its expiration date.
Our coders can mark on a wide range of materials from plastics, such as PET and films, to aluminum, cardboard containers and paper labels to enable you to meet regulatory requirements and for controlled product traceability such as pharmaceutical blister packs.
Designed to code in hazardous and hygiene controlled production environments, features such as ingress protection ensures that our coders can be washed down or sterlilized without affecting their operation or the clarity of date, batch number or barcode marking.
Coding on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Linx printers are ideal for marking and coding masks, respirators, gloves, bottles for fluids e.g. hand sanitizer and a range of other industrial or personal protective equipment (PPE).
Accurate and consistent marking of products, especially in high speed production environments, also enables compliance with industry regulations and reinforces consumer confidence in your medical supplies or PPE products.
Linx coders can support dynamic, non-contact coding as products move along production lines and also static marking for products placed into a cradle or holder.
We also offer a range of coding methods with ink based coding (using black or white inks), thermal transfer printing using ribbons and permanent laser marking. Our team can help advise on the most appropriate coding solution for your product and production environment based on your line speed and ensuring any hygiene or product sanitization processes will not affect the quality or visibility of marking.
Coding on Protective Masks
See the Linx 8900 CIJ being used on a production line in the manufacture of protective face masks. It ensures consistent marking and improves production volumes by replacing the need for manual marking methods.
The continuous inkjet is configured to detect each item as it moves along the line, automatically coding the manufacture date and batch number onto the packaging of face masks to be used in hygiene compliant or medical environments.
