Printing on a wide range of packaging materials

Printing on a wide range of packaging materials

In-house Printing Supports Lean Packaging Processes

You have the flexibility to work with neutral or generically preprinted materials to print what you need, when you need it. For whatever market. Move rapidly from concept to product by reducing logistics and supply chain management complexities, and produce smaller batches cost effectively.

Reduce Time to Market

  • Leaner production processes
  • Increased production flexibility, from artwork concept to pack production
  • Multiply product variants without multiplying process complexity
    • launch new products or campaigns
    • target new niches or markets

Manage SKU Complexity

Customize packaging materials at the last moment – neutral labels & foils are the leanest form of packaging

  • Supply as many markets as you want with 
    • neutral roll-fed web material – blister foils & labeling materials
    • Late stage customization of neutral blisters

Reduce Waste

During production, packaging materials and products are wasted by processes that can be reduced or eliminated by inline printing, including:

  • Waste due to rework of batches (e.g. due to a broken coding digit)
  • Out of date packaging material and products 
  • Material left over at the end of a batch

Leaner Forecasting

  • Implement the late-stage-customization of products
  • Simplify and improve your forecasting
  • React quickly to market volatility

Replace Embossing with Printing

Blister embossing stations take time to set up and the result is difficult to read and cannot be checked by a camera.

  • Increase asset utilization via faster set up time
  • Integrate expiration dates and lot numbers into the overall package design
  • Improve legibility with sharp print
  • Remove the incidence of rework due to broken coding digits
  • Digital print – high quality serialized data for Track & Trace applications

Eliminate Reconciliation

  • Use neutral or generically pre-printed materials across different products, dosages, 
    and formats
  • Streamline the process and reduce movement of materials around the factory
