PHARMACEUTICAL TABLET PRINTING
pad printing machines
Pharmaceuticals appear in many different forms (liquids, tablets, gels, …). Printing International’s pharmaceutical pad printing division focuses on solutions for printing directly on oral dosage forms. This means that both for solid dosage- and some of the liquid dosage forms: on pharmaceutical tablets, soft gel capsules, hard gel capsules, freeze-dried tablets, etc… With our technique of transfer printing we immobilise the product under the printing head and therefore obtain a very high quality print and without the use of Titanium Dioxide!
The printing quality of a tablet (soft/hard gel) printing machine depends roughly on the following parameters:
- ink printing system; we use the linear (pad) printing technology. You dont need use Titanium Dioxide (why it is important?), The surface of the pill (capsule…) is not damaged as with the laser.
- product positioning system; we use a combination of plates with positioning cavities and vacuum to hold the tablets during printing
- ink; customers use high-quality WATER-BASED INK or food-grade inks
- product; customers may have any type of tablets (soft gel, hard gel…) regardless of size, shape and coating.
COMPLY TO THE INDUSTRY STANDARDS
All materials which come into contact with the medication in the printing process, are made of FDA approved material.
Further internal validation processes are available as is the GAMP certification.
WATER-BASED FDA APPROVED INKS
Pharmaceutical products can be printed with water-based FDA approved inks in
addition to our standard and natural inks. Printing International provides specialized pad printing pads and pad printing plates, which makes it possible to achieve perfect printing results with these water-based inks.
