TTO vs. hot stamp for coding on flexible packaging materials TTO vs. hot stamp for coding on flexible packaging materials
This whitepaper compares the benefits of thermal transfer overprinters (TTO) versus hot stamp printers when it comes to printing codes and variable data on flexible packaging. While both technologies are designed to transfer ink from an onto a thin, flexible substrate, TTO delivers many benefits to manufacturers.

Serialization need not be complex
By Jim Chrzan, VP/Publisher, Healthcare Packaging
Public awareness of supply chain counterfeiting, diversion, and theft could lead to a situation where we are "one headline away" from Federal legislation that would be reactive in nature and probably not examine the problem from as many angles as present themselves when discussing serialization.

That's why the time to implement your global strategy is now.

That was the message Bill Fletcher delivered at Mettler Toledo's Pharma Exchange, an education-driven free event for end users attended by 80-plus suppliers in Chicago July 10 and 11. Fletcher is a managing partner at Pharma-Logic Solutions.

Serialization includes at least three components, and we often hear people interchanging them. These include: e-Pedigree (where it came from), track and trace (where it has been and where it is headed now), and authentication (where the end user closes the loop.)

"Bake in" agility to your serialization strategy, said Fletcher. "Variations in product ID (from mergers and acquisitions, say) and country-specific uniqueness" calls for a very modular system that can take into account regional regulatory requirements, all factored into a flexible data system.
