Epson America Inc.’s portfolio of ColorWorks™ technologies can efficiently and cost-effectively produce small- to medium-size color label runs from one to 10,000 pieces.
The ColorWorks C3500 is for manual or roll-to-roll label applications ranging from high-value, low-volume specialty pharmaceuticals to small- to medium-volume automated filling operations.
The ColorWorks C831 Wide Label Printer is for GHS-compliant, large-format drum and chemical labels and is also the first ink-jet solution to be certified to British Maritime Shipping Standard BS5609, according to the vendor.
The next-generation ColorWorks system is geared toward higher volume applications. The robust bench-top printer will introduce faster print speeds and better image quality powered by Epson’s PrecisionCore™ print chip technology.
Epson’s Just In Time Color™ (JITC) technologies offer repackers and distributors the opportunity to efficiently incorporate custom color label production into their operations and manage frequent, fluctuating quantity orders by printing the exact label they need on demand. The real-time capabilities of ColorWorks printers facilitate compliance with industry standards and help distributors avoid label overstock and high capital investments. In a single step, Epson’s JITC technologies can reduce total labeling costs by eliminating the need for color preprints.
The rise of high-value specialty pharmaceuticals, growth of the generics market, smaller order sizes and increasing label complexity are driving demand for shorter batch color labels. With the Drug Quality and Security Act’s (DQSA) impending guidelines, the pharmaceutical industry requires technologies that can rapidly and accurately match label changes to maintain a smooth production flow. Pharmaceutical distributors and repackers can increase operational flexibility with Epson America, Inc.’s family of JITC labeling systems.
