Pharmapack Europe: rlc | packaging group presents safety and system solutions for the pharmaceutical industry
Hanover, 14 January 2016 – This year’s Pharmapack Europe taking place in Paris on 10-11 February is where the rlc | packaging group will be presenting its PHARMACENTERS’ comprehensive solutions for folding boxes, leaflets and pharmaceutical co-packaging in Hall 5, Stand 319. Together with specialists from PAS Media, rlc will also demonstrate how processes along the packaging value chain can be structured more safely and why an integrated approach is so essential when it comes to safety.
For many years, the family-managed company has continuously invested in the latest safety technologies in order to offer its customers the best possible product protection. These innovations include special finishes designed for brand protection as well as a wide range of tamper-proof solutions – as required by law – and packaging serialization. At the trade fair, rlc will present various packaging solutions, including the “All-in-One” box – a folding box with multiple safety features integrated into the design to ensure packaging authenticity and integrity. “Two tamper-evidence solutions clearly show whether a package has been opened,” explains Walter Würfel, European Key Account Manager for Pharma at rlc. “A current solution from the field of serialization has also been integrated.”
The portfolio of rlc services includes reliable serialization for efficient product protection. “In our PHARMACENTER near Rüdersdorf, we use a specially configured coding line to apply labels to the packaging and to serialize them in a single operation,” Würfel explains. Along with its PHARMACENTERS in Rüdersdorf (Berlin) and Poznan (Poland), rlc recently opened a third location in Spreitenbach (near Zurich), where it can now serve pharmaceutical industry customers based in Switzerland. With its state-of-the-art pharmaceutical packaging centers, the group of companies focuses on the specific demands of the pharmaceutical industry and covers the entire packaging value chain. Step by step, rlc is continuing to invest in technology and expertise in order to coordinate its operations in all three PHARMACENTERS and enable them to work together as effectively as possible.
Safe processes, efficient workflow
Representatives from the independently operating competence center PAS Media will also be at the rlc stand at Pharmapack. As a GMP-validated artwork lifecycle management solution, PAS Media is a collaboration platform that facilitates an efficient, fast and reliable workflow for package printing. The tool serves as a backbone for safe and smooth project flow, from briefing to printing approval – all in accordance with the customer’s predefined specifications. “PAS Media is web-based and manages all of the data from a central location. Users can track processes at any time and from any place,” explains Mario Fäh, PAS Media Managing Director. “This not only helps speed up approval processes, it can also reduce errors and documentation time.”
