3C! Packaging, an independent privately-owned pharmaceutical packaging solutions company specializing in the design and manufacture of custom folding cartons, printed literature, inserts/outserts, labels/foils and unit dose applications, will premiere a sophisticated new coating for coding applications for serialization applications at INTERPHEX NYC 2015, April 21-23 at the Jacob K. Javits Center. Offering high precision, functionality and consistency without intruding upon limited design and product information space, the company’s Clear Code will be showcased at INTERPHEX on a Domino AmJet printer in conjunction with co-developer DataLase.
Clear Code is a next-generation system employing an industrial CO2 laser, whcih works with a clear coating by causing a color change reaction to produce a positive contrast image. The result is enhanced clarity and contrast.
The Clear Code process offers two significant improvements over traditional coding and competing clear laser etching applications. First, Clear Code avoids marking techniques that require printed dark blocks to decode laser etched information. Second, the process successfully achieves an especially accurate, opaque image.
As such, the Clear Code process requires no inks, ribbons, applicators or other costly consumables, simplifying the process and making it more cost-effective and eco-friendly than current technologies that utilize hazardous production line materials
