‘Annealing’ on stainless steel bearing

Metal parts, such as bearings, also need to be marked for identification with their product reference, brand or lot number for later traceability. Metal requires a marking and coding that does not damage the surface and with a high marking contrast in order to read the data properly.

For this purpose, and in general for the marking of metallic materials such as stainless steel, we use a fibre laser such as the SPA F-9020, which by means of annealing – or changing the metal’s colour by increasing its temperature – we can obtain a permanent black marking of great legibility and without damaging the surface.

Macsa ID, a leader in marking, coding and traceability solutions, together with Adents, experts in serialisation, are proud to present SERIAL FARMA, the most comprehensive global solution to comply with the new mandatory regulation on pharmaceutical serialisation.

The Falsified Medicines Directive (Directive 2011/62/EU) establishes solutions to combat counterfeit medicines. It is a key priority in the Medical and Pharmaceutical Sector as all pharmaceutical laboratories with prescription medicines must comply with the EU-FMD before the deadline of 9th February 2019.

On the 5th October we attended the ‘Are you ready for serialisation?’ conference organised by AECOC (in Madrid), where we participated in the roundtable to discuss the new regulations, inform manufacturers of the effect they will have and offer our different solutions. We were also present at the same event held in Barcelona on 18th October.

What is traceability?

According to the AECOC Food Safety Committee, traceability “is the set of those pre-established and self-sufficient procedures that mean that the history, location and distribution of a product or batch of products can be tracked at any given time along the supply chain, through the use of certain tools.”

Many of us have in our minds different cases of contaminated food products that have reached the final consumer and have generated scandals in the defence of both human and animal health. Food safety is the most important thing that must be provided to the consumer, since factors such as taste, smell or colour can be considered to be objective, but safety can never be negotiable.

Labelling of pallets with plastic oil bottles

With the idBlocks Pallet 6011 by Macsa ID, F. Faiges reduces downtime and increases productivity

 One of the concerns of the management of F. Faiges, a multinational company dedicated to the production of food oil, is that the process of labelling their pallets in the 30,000 m2 plant located in Daimiel, Ciudad Real, is carried out in an efficient, and above all, trouble-free way. They know only too well that any type of error will cause stops or delays in the production that will result in lower plant productivity and an increase in costs.
