Atlantic Zeiser to present innovations for the pharma sector at INTERPACK 2011

Press release from the issuing company
Emmingen - The Atlantic Zeiser Group, a leading provider of technology, module and system solutions for industrial DoD digital printing, will showcase the new OMEGA 20/25 printing module and a new air-cooled LED curing technology at INTERPACK 2011, one of Europe's leading packaging trade shows. The printer and curing system package can be used for horizontal and vertical printing, and has been designed for the special requirements of the pharmaceutical industry. It features a compact design, and offers powerful inline integration components for marking, coding and serialising in late-stage customisation, as well as product track & trace and anti-counterfeiting. INTERPACK 2011 is being staged in Düsseldorf, Germany, between May 12 and 18. Atlantic Zeiser can be found in hall 13 at stand C12.
The spot colour DoD inkjet printer, OMEGA 20/25, can cover printing widths between 20mm and 25mm, the maximum printing width required for adding markings and variable product and production information to pharmaceutical packaging. Such information includes contents, expiry dates, warning notices, usage and consumption notes, as well as volume information in text and in different languages.
The OMEGA also offers machine-readable coding of the packaging materials with the corresponding information as barcodes or 2D data matrix. In this process, check codes are printed and can be used for product tracing. The check codes can also be used to tackle the growing grey market in the pharmaceutical sector.
The demand for lower printing widths of 20mm to 25mm is based on the installation options available on existing packaging lines at pharmaceutical producers. As these are generally large-scale systems, there is very little space for marking and coding integration modules. This means a compact design is crucial - and Atlantic Zeiser has responded accordingly in the shape of the INTERPACK offering. To ensure the requisite high quality is achieved, the company has developed a unique air-cooled LED curing solution that hardens the printing ink at speeds of up to 60m/min. The curing system does not require any additional cooling units or coolants, and features a design as compact as the OMEGA 20/25 printer.
Visitors to the exhibition will also discover the benefits of another DoD inkjet printing solution for late-stage customisation - the OMEGA 210 on a White-Line from MediSeal GmbH. An example pharmaceutical packaging line will be demonstrated in hall 16, stand A25, with Körber Medipak GmbH the main exhibitor.
