AXR 7+ for medical pouch identification

Published 18/09/2016
A very high level of print quality and resistance is required for such sensitive data

The AXR®7+ Thermal Transfer film meets a dual print requirement for this global market leader in the healthcare sector: the labelling of medical pouches containing glucose and the identification of packing boxes.

A number of difficulties associated with the manufacturing and packing process run the risk of the printed information becoming erased. The producer's requirements are as follows:
- A single ribbon to print two different labels: a synthetic label on the medical pouch and a coated paper label on the packaging.
- A printing solution able to provide abrasion resistance due to the pouches rubbing against each other on the production belt, and which guarantees perfect legibility of the box label right up to delivery.
- Good adhesion of the ink to the label without the ink becoming transferred to another pouch when they are piled up on the production belt.
- High heat resistance in a humid environment.
- Compliance with international regulations including those associated with food contact applications.

Tests performed in real-life conditions demonstrated that the inkanto AXR®7+ Resin ink meets all of these requirements.
ARMOR is also able to provide support to health industry companies with their Drug Master File (DMF) submissions to the FDA.
