Being at the forefront of digital technology in the pharmaceutical packaging sector, we are the first UK carton manufacturer to offer fully validated digital printing of Braille on cartons.
Our service allows the printing of Braille dots onto a carton without the need for special tooling, which makes it suitable for short runs and digitally printed cartons.
The system uses a polymer ‘drop on demand’ nozzle to apply the Braille, which is then UV cured. After application, a vision verification system checks each carton for dot presence, height and circumference, and translates the Braille into human readable text for operators to check.
Print quality and resolution are excellent and the height of the dot meets all international requirements. Equally important, adherence of the dots to the carton is excellent and transit trials carried out by Smithers Pira have confirmed the robustness of the Braille.
The Braille typeface used is Marburg Medium, which is recommended by relevant European and North American standards for pharmaceutical packaging.
The Braille printer is part of our PS9000 certified digital production suite at our carton and leaflet manufacturing facility in Deeside, Flintshire.
