Coding and marking solutions for UDI coding on medical devices
- DuPont™ Tyvek®: Videojet Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers, thermal transfer overprinters (TTO) and UV laser marking machines are ideal solutions to apply UDI codes on medical device packaging made of Tyvek®. The UV laser marking system delivers high-contrast, permanent codes that are resistant to abrasives, chemicals and sterilization processes allowing for lifetime device traceability.
- Pouches: Pouch packaging can be made of various materials, such as Tyvek®, medical paper, metal foil or film. Videojet TTO, TIJ and Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) printers are best suited for UDI coding on various pouch materials.
- Stainless steel: Many medical devices contain stainless steel components. To directly mark medical devices containing high-density materials such as metal, aluminum, stainless steel and plastics, fiber laser marking systems are commonly used due to their ability to produce permanent, crisp codes that withstand intensive wear and repeated sterilization.
