2. The challenge

Visual identification is essential in the healthcare industry. Dealing in the development and manufacture of in-vitro diagnostic products for human applications, CerTest needed to implement an efficient solution to mark the primary packaging of its tests in a legible, top quality and durable manner

In addition, the solution provided had to be designed to operate at the highest speeds, in harsh environments, and with the highest output requirements.

3. Macsa ID’s solution

The comprehensive solution from Macsa id for CerTest includes software that controls the Inkjet marking system. This means that it is possible to control the identification management of all its machines from just one point. In addition, the traceability of its products is performed automatically.

Inkjet marking is carried out using a high-performance inkjet printer. This is the Linx 8920 model, which marks the sachets containing the tests. This technology has been customised, incorporating a friction sachet feeder unit to make the process more efficient and doubling its output.

The Linx 8920 continuous inkjet printer is designed to support error-free coding. It has a simple user interface that allows for rapid message creation and selection with a large touch screen. Up to 5 lines of code can be linked in this technology, including data matrix and printing of QR codes with high-speed variations for a wide variety of applications. In addition, it has rapid self-service with minimal involvement, thus maximising the efficiency of the production line. This implementation helps save costs and time during production by enhancing efficiency.
