Medical & pharmaceutical
Product traceability is critically important in the pharmaceutical industry. Stringent regulations exist to ensure that faulty or contaminated drugs can be traced and isolated, and counterfeit or black market products can be identified and removed from the supply chain.
CO2 lasers can be used to apply information to pharmaceutical packaging materials including card, foil, plastic and glass. Human-readable text and Data Matrix codes are applied directly on the production line, on the fly. Laser marks are permanent and indelible.
Not restricted to packaging applications, our CO2 lasers are useful across the medical industry, where they can cut, drill, perforate and mark a range of products.
