AXR 600 for surgical equipment

Published 10/01/2016
Printing with sterilisation resistance at 200°C

Within the context of ensuring compliance with UDI (Unique Device Identifier) regulations in the USA under which every medical device must be identified, this surgical suture equipment manufacturer has introduced a print solution using Thermal Transfer.
The difficulty for this user is achieving a durable print of the wide range of data and diagrams required under the UDI standard on a porous substrate, Tyvek®, prior to sterilising everything via a high-pressure/high-temperature sterilisation process (in excess of 200°C).
These extreme conditions require the use of a Resin ink, among which only the inkanto Thermal Transfer ribbon AXR®600 successfully passed the various testing stages conducted by this US ribbon manufacturer.
When necessary, ARMOR is able to provide support to health industry companies with their Drug Master File (DMF) submissions to the FDA.
