Products from AR Packaging

  • Pharmaceutical leaflets – Compliant patient information

    Product Pharmaceutical leaflets – Compliant patient information

    To ensure the correct intake or application of a pharmaceutical product[LI1]  and to inform about side effects, every medicine is delivered with mandatory patient information. Also in the broad market of personal care, products often need to come along with additional information for the customer. Therefore, we take great care of leaflet solutions, that comply with latest regulatory requirements and guarantee high line efficiency.

    In providing folding boxes and leaflets from one single source, we develop a well fitted solution in an efficient way and offer maximum flexibility. Choose from a variety of individual formats and folding types – from plano, to outserts to integrated leaflets. Through permanent print inspection and code verification we ensure security during all stages of printing and converting. The downstream packaging process can be supported by our co-packaging service.

  • Serialisation and Track & trace

    Product Serialisation and Track & trace

    To protect patients and drug manufacturers from seriously damaging counterfeits, a high level of product and process transparency and authenticity is in place. The industry is relying on serialisation and track & trace – and there are several, different country-specific requirements, that regulate the specification for a successful traceability in each market. Compliance with these strict safety regulations should go hand in hand with an efficient process.

    With our production technologies, we print all common code formats on open and pre-glued packaging blanks. A high-resolution, high-contrast print result ensure legibility in the Grading A area. With the support of a modern [BJ1] IT infrastructure, number ranges are precisely managed and pharma-compliant data handling is secured, which includes the provision and feedback of coded data. We offer an integrated, highly efficient process – from production to serialisation – from a single source.

  • Suture packaging with outstanding peel opening

    Product Suture packaging with outstanding peel opening

    The demands on surgical packaging is extreme in many ways. Sterility and avoidance of contamination is of course crucial for the patient safety while controlled easy opening is decisive for the performance in the operating theatres.

    The AR Packaging Transofoil® Coldform solution is a custom designed packaging for high barrier demanding sutures. The single primary packaging provides specific opening features for tamper evidence and smooth peelability. The sutures can be packed in thermoformable Transofoil® with Tyvek as a strip or the foil and outer wrapping of Tyvek or medical paper and film, depending on sterilisation methods (irradiation and ETO) and absorbable suture procedures.

    The white and shiny Transofoil® material gives an attractive look whether neutral or printed. Development and testing is done in cooperation with the machine supplier Colimatic to ensure high efficiency and faster implementation process.
