Products are packaged to customer specifications.

Customer Benefits

In-line printing operates wholly within LEAN principles. A Hapa packaging printing system enables a range of specific benefits designed to reduce waste and accelerate process and production efficiency. On Demand printing capability tightens packaging controls and delivers the flexibility to respond faster to market demand - open new opportunities for expansion.

Specific benefits include:
  • Reduced SKU’s: supply unlimited markets from a single stock keeping unit. Using blank or generic pre-printed material saves on warehouse space, logistic processes and eliminates obsolete products.
  • Reduced Waste: eliminate expenses from changeovers and reduce downtimes. Economize on processes and reduce risks of errors and recalls.
  • Accurate Forecasting: simplify and improve forecasting strategy with more accurate results. Hapa’s UV DOD technologies facilitate Late Stage Customization of products, and switching production from make-to-stock to make-to-order.
  • Reduced Time to Market: mobilize rapidly for product launches or specific campaigns; produce more personalized products and target new or niche markets.
  • Private Labelling: alter graphical and text elements or trade dress more immediately and cater for regional markets or white-label clients. Manufacturers can produce unfinished products in bulk to be shipped on demand and finished locally with an in-house Hapa printer.
  • Serialisation / Track & Trace: print each pack uniquely, no matter its form or substrate. Hapa’s fully-digital printing technology is ideally suited to producing micro batches and enabling serialisation and Track & Trace.
  • Substitute Embossing: expiration dates and lot number can be integrated seamlessly into the overall package design, improving readability for automatic verification and end-customer use. An added benefit: print is non-invasive.
  • Eliminate Reconciliation: use generically pre-printed or blank materials across different products, strengths, dosage forms and quantities of contents to eliminate set-up and tear-down times, and all processes associated with reconciliation.
  • Easy to use, robust and reliable: train existing line personal on Hapa systems. Colour changes are rapidly done. The technologies and systems are proven robust and reliable.
