MM Packaging, a secondary packaging supplier to the pharmaceutical industry, is supporting its customers clean up their serialization and protect their products with the Clear Code anti-counterfeiting technology. Clear Code is a pre-treatment or coating applied to cartons and labels that enables precise patterns to be applied to the substrate using CO2, Fibre, or YAG laser energy. This results in high contrast secure coding for pharma packaging that avoids the need to directly inscribe information by instead using bespoke colour changing technology.
This coding system produces codes that are completely scuff and smudge resistant and are not susceptible to environmental degradation. Clear Code eliminates the problem of dust particles in packaging lines caused by abrasion – producing safer working conditions – while also ensuring Clear Code has a wide substrate compatibility in the industry.
Russell Hill, VP Sales and Innovation in MM Packaging US, said: “Clear Code is a revolution for pharmaceutical packaging design. As a provider of pharmaceutical packaging, we regularly see businesses struggling with serialisation: from technology producing excess dust, to sustainability agendas pushing you to use alternative methods, or needing to use more efficient technology to improve your efficiency ratios, Clear Code is both a sustainable and more cost-effective serialisation solution.
“MM Packaging acts as a partner to our customers throughout the pack development process, incorporating serialisation during the packaging design stage to save time and money and optimise the downstream packaging production process. We’re delighted to be able to offer this cutting-edge solution and can’t wait to share its benefits with the wider industry.”
