Enhancing Efficiency and Accuracy in Food Packaging and Pharmaceutical Labeling: An Analysis of UV Laser Printing Technology

Animek Shaurya [3]


Abstract: This study uses a data-driven approach to analyze the advantages and impacts of ultraviolet UV coding technology in food packaging and pharmaceutical industries utilizing vertical pillow-type packaging machines. The context of this paper helps in understanding the logic behind needing to follow a strict labeling standard to meet dietary and medical regulations on the products produced and the science behind the principles, techniques, and methodologies of the correct coding or marking processes used to achieve these requirements. The challenge of matching the high speed of a packaging machine, married with the high accuracy of applying data codes on the packaging material, is a critical aspect of these industries. In today?s world, industries use various innovative methods for coding and marking solutions, evolving daily to improve productivity while maintaining high product quality standards. This paper compares the data collected from running a thermal printing solution in the food packaging industry against using an ultraviolet laser printing solution. It analyses this data to compare both techniques on the cost of maintenance, spare parts, consumables, machine reliability, production rate, accuracy of printing, and traceability for product recalls.
