Laser coding system helps meet traceability demands

Macsa ID has highlighted its D-5005 Duo Green laser system for ‘reliable, accurate and high speed’ marking directly onto pills.

Designed for marking delicate substrates and coating ablation, the laser coder helps meet the requirements of the FDA’s Unique Device Identification (UDI) and the EU’s Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD).

The D-5005 Duo Green is a non-contact coder, said to allow high contrast marks to be achieved without causing thermal damage to the pill product. The pills are coloured with a variety of dyes for better differentiation.

With marking up to 150 milliseconds per capsule, the Macsa ID D-5005 Green laser features a touchscreen interface allowing the operator to adapt workflow with speed.
