Quebec City, October 24, 2017 — OPTEL GROUP, a leading global provider of traceability systems for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, launched today its brand-new, innovative vision inspection solution, HD PrintSafeTM.
This high-definition, high-speed digital inkjet printing system works as an all‑in-one, drop‑on‑demand and inspection solution, rendering it highly versatile and able to work with large web printing and high volumes.
On one side is the drop-on-demand printer, a fully integrated ink jet system manufactured by BELL-MARK, a company specializing in in-line printing and coding. This system works seamlessly with its PC-based print design software. On the other side is a 100% web inspection (artwork and variable data) solution using CIS (Contact Image Sensor) inspection technology, ready for serialization.
OPTEL’s HD PrintSafeTM was designed with serialization and UDI regulations requirements in mind, i.e. precise OCV/OCR, barcode, 2D code, grading and web inspection. Such rigorous verifications offer the best print quality and consistency for pharmaceutical and medical device packaging, confirming integrity and ensuring user safety.
Most thermoforming packaging lines are still equipped with outdated, costly printing technologies. Manufacturers are experiencing frequent downtimes and high variable costs throughout both pharmaceutical and medical device industries. However, the existing market’s drop-on-demand printers offering is very limited, especially when combined with a vision system – OPTEL’s HD PrintSafeTM successfully uses both technologies.
Ever-increasing traceability regulations and brand protection may eventually require unit-dose serialization. After careful consideration of these challenges, OPTEL developed the all-in-one HD PrintSafeTM solution to optimize the printing and vision inspection process, with quick changeovers, to help improve the efficiency and consistency on packaging lines.
OPTEL experts will be at Stand 40J28 during CPhI Worldwide in Messe Frankfurt, Germany, from October 24 to 26, 2017, to answer questions and provide insight into serialization, UDI, printing or inspection challenges, as well as offer an in-depth, live demonstration of the HD PrintSafeTM.
