As a consequence of the increasingly ageing population, the demand for pharmaceutical and medicinal products (prescription medicines, non-prescription over-the-counter medicines) is growing. Here, the packaging requirements of the pharma industry are amongst the most demanding.

- Optimal codability (inkjet and laser) to enable 2D matrix codes and 1D China codes for verifying the authenticity of a medicine and guaranteeing complete product traceability
- Consistent quality to guarantee uniform converting, an efficient packaging procedure and the same appearance in the pharmacy at all times
