Hapa Application Testing

Contributing to pharma product safety

Security and reliability are essential when printing data on primary pharmaceutical packaging. The principal goal of Hapa is therefore to provide validated print performance for inline printing, particularly for systems integrated into packaging lines in a GMP-compliant setting. 

Application testing is therefore a foundation of all our projects to ensure elevated security. During the actual production, our customers can then be certain that their print processes will operate reliably from the outset.

We are happy to test your artwork on your materials, using Hapa technology. Please reach out for a consultation by an expert

Where exactly does your packaging complexity lie?

Is it in

  • increased number of packaging variants
  • warehouse stock value reduction
  • minimum order sizes from packaging suppliers
  • smaller batch sizes with frequent changeovers
  • demands for a faster time to market
  • marking of unit-dose blisters
  • improved asset utilization
  • focus on OEE improvement

Through decades of close cooperation and partnerships with key players in the market, we are able to understand complex customer needs and implement the solution best suited for you.

Blister variants

Inline on-demand printing

With inline on-demand printing, you integrate the customization of the product directly into the blister line
The storage of blank lidding foil allows you to...

  • diminish stock
  • minimize overprocessing
  • reduce material handling
  • cut out waiting times due to unavailability of preprinted foils
  • eliminate overproduction
  • prevent unnecessary transportation
  • optimize the workflow

Late-stage customization

The shift in production profiles from large volumes with a few SKUs to high mix / low volumes is well documented. Today, the majority of pharmaceutical companies struggle to manage the complexity associated with demand volatility and a high number of product variants.

With late-stage customization, blister packaging lines produce only blank blisters at a high speed. This allows the customization of sealed blisters at the last stage of the production process. As soon as orders for smaller batches come in, blank blisters are released from inventory, printed on demand in the exact quantity required and rapidly delivered to where they are needed.
