Heidelberg Linoprint: Digital printing for pharmaceuticals
Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG offers Linoprint D for industrial digital inline and offline printing, suitable for the pharmaceutical industry.
Linoprint D digital printing system (formerly DTS12oo) prints logos, decorative elements, expiry dates, batch numbers, production data, and complete text. In addition, tablet blister packs can be labeled individually with data-matrix codes. With its digital electrophotography process and a print width of between 50 and 320 mm (1.97 in and 12.60 in), the system is suited for pharmaceutical and medical technology applications.
With a resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi, the Linoprint D offers piracy protection and track and trace. Digital full-area printing and coding with dynamic data can be used in tandem at all times, so it is no longer necessary to mix different technologies. Micro lettering on the blister pack ensures each item of packaging has a clear mark that cannot be copied, thereby offering added protection against product piracy. In addition, the special toners developed in-house with highly-functional additives provide even more protection against counterfeiting. These can only be used in combination with this printing system.
