A very important idea in the production and labeling of a pharmaceutical product is its serialization. This approach classifies the product with singular, non-punctuation serial numbers on every packaging. After placing singular codes on singular products, manufacturers have to know where these objects are located. Aggregation can be obtained by implementing vision technics in automatic wrappers or packet packing machines or on the basis of aggregation systems, for instance by means of dosage conveyors. Cartons are one of the most commonly employed drug device for drugs and medical products. Marking of these packaging with high quality codes legible for people and devices is a crucial element of the medical firm's traceability plan. Bottles, which are an unusually often used medical packaging, can be coded in many places. Regular and visible in ultraviolet or infrared radiation markings on the side of the container, on the label or cap - these are just some of the potential solutions. Marking vials is a difficult task as to the small size of the packaging.




The most efficient labeling effects can be obtained if the printer is compatible with packaging machines designed just to carry objects of this precise form.
