Datamatrix 2D coding technology has become the international coding standard. The use of Datamatrix code, as recommended for pharmaceutical products by EFPIA (European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations), allows the coding of information relating to the manufacturer’s product code, unique serial number, lot number, and expiration date, thereby increasing reliability in the supply chain.
Beginning in February 2019, nearly all prescription medications must include a unique code to track each package to its origin. It is very important that this code be applied with high quality, necessitating the use of accurate, reliable, and high-quality equipment.
This complex code must be applied with the best quality processes. The available space for the code is often quite small, so it is not only the accuracy of the printing that is important, but also the placement of the code itself.
UBS’ TJX Series technology is readily integrated in production lines, it can easily communicate with different ERP systems and traceability software, and can print high-quality 2D Data Matrix barcodes on point-of-sale packaging at high outputs, converting the operation into a safe, efficient, clean process.
