Press Release | Hapa AG
JUNE 26, 2014
Volketswil, Switzerland: –At the Interphex Japan trade fair, Hapa, the On Demand print-specialist, will partner with sister companies Laetus and FlexLink in the demonstration of an innovative and affordable Track & Trace solution for the pharmaceutical sector, the Laetus MV70.
A Hapa redcube, along with a FlexLink conveyor, will be integrated into the exhibited Laetus MV70 pack-handling system. The redcube, a compact UV DOD (drop on demand) printing, marking and coding module will print variable data on cartons, which can then be tracked and traced at any point in the life-cycle of the product.
As well as excelling at printing variable data, the redcube is capable of full-package presentation, and also excels at direct-printing on a wide range of products, including glass and plastic components. Whatever the application, the finished print is robust and moisture-resilient.
Visitors to Hapa at Booth 35-12 in Hall 6 will also be able to see the wide range of different control interface and integration options available for the redcube.
