A number of solvents and aqueous ink variations are available to print onto the surface of tablets, capsules, and more. Pharmaceutical ink should ensure compatibility with the product surface that is being printed upon. With many types of coatings now available, each one has its own particular reaction to the ingredients contained in printing inks. Here at Needham Ink Tech, we are able to provide you with high quality, reliable edible inks for use across the medical industry.
Inkjet printing and the medical industry
Inkjet printing solutions are particularly suitable for implementing requirements for the identification of medicines. Inkjet printing can be used to generate both characters and 2D barcodes at high print speed and quality and apply them to a variety of surfaces and materials. Even multi-line prints and the combination of characters and graphics can be realized without any problems.
The consistent and clear coding provides very good legibility and high contrast and is permanent and durable. In addition, Continuous Inkjet printers are highly efficient and therefore particularly economical in terms of individual product packaging. Not a drop of ink is lost with this printing system, which has a significant impact on operating costs, especially with high throughput.
As such, pharmaceutical companies require high quality, reliable consumables for their printers that allow them to achieve consistent results for the products they manufacture.
