  • What machine to i need for Pharmaceutical labels

    Hello everyone.
    Im looking to start a production line for pharmaceutical labels and i need your advice and guidance.
    Most important its to have excellent quality from the fist label until the last.
    The labels are usually glossy paper , 1-5 pantone color, recto, some labels have UV varnish.
    Would it be a bad idea to order our printing plates or should we create them in house.
    Rotary dies or flat bed?
    What machines do you suggest?
    Any help is more than welcome.

    Thank you

        Take a look at the Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C71cf label printer, or the more recently introduced KM AccurioLabel 190. Full disclosure: I work for KM in the US.

          thanks for the tip Steve0 but i'm not interested in a digital printer as ill be printing large quantities and mostly Pantone colors. Plus the Pantone needs to be 100% accurate

            This sounds like a perfect job for a Roden-Dotseth press; they are out of Germany and have a whole line including die-cutters for pharmaceutical work.

                Those results are what I would expect.

                  i found nothing on Roden-Dotseth. Never heard of them to be honest either.

                    Is the varnish a necessity for your labels? If you are looking for some affordable digital printers Arrow Systems offers some nice printers for in-house pharmaceutical labels.

                      Thank you Shaan. Yes Varnish is necessary. As i said we will be printing Pantone colors and the volume per order is around 100000 labels so no digital machines.
