Pharma Substrates: Parenterals


Whether being used for customer-facing
information or bright stocking, coding
injectable products are inherently challenging,
given the small size and reduced radius of the
packaging. Integrating the coding solution into
OEM equipment provides improved product
control, leading to higher quality human and
machine readable codes.
Videojet’s dedicated pharmaceutical and OEM
specialists can help you select the correct
solution for your application, whether it is plastic,
glass or aluminum.

Videojet solutions for coding directly onto vials

There are different locations where vials can be marked: on the aluminum side rim closure, on top of the vial cap or on the bottom. And different technologies can be used ranging over CIJ, TIJ or laser.

  • Fiber Laser: By marking aluminum vial closures on the side, the laser creates durable codes that last the lifetime of the product to help maintain traceability at any time.
  • Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers: TIJ and CIJ printer are ideal solutions for printing alphanumeric or 2D DataMatrix codes directly onto the vial cap.
  • Continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer: The invisible code, printed with a Continuous inkjet or Thermal inkjet printer, is typically applied to the vial cap or bottom. This allows for internal traceability without the code visible at the point of use.
