Printing plates for blister printing: COE shows pharma workflow at the CPhI Worldwide

Stuttgart/Bremen, 29/09/2017. Carl Ostermann Erben GmbH (COE), one of the few high-end suppliers of printing plates in Germany, will be presenting its pharma workflow at the CPhI Worldwide 2017 (24 to 26 October in Frankfurt). What is special: Print data is ready to be released within just a few minutes and special cameras identify the correct printing plate by means of coding. Pharma companies that print blisters with imprinting devices themselves, benefit from the highest data and process security – even with variable data.

The family business, which recently celebrated its 125th anniversary, stands for the highest process reliability and reliable quality. "With our expertise, we have enjoyed an excellent reputation with many of our manufacturers for many years now in the field of blister printing with flexographic printing, especially in the pharmaceutical industry," says Managing Director Andreas Segelken. "We will now be presenting this know-how at one of the leading trade fairs in the industry."

At the exhibition stand (42D72) manufacturers of blister packaging can convince themselves of just how easy it is to transfer order data to COE. A validated and verified workflow ensures that all parameters and markings are taken into account when printing the blisters. Fully-automated, customers receive the finished print data for release in just a few minutes - and around the clock. A special coding of the printing plates by COE and their identification by means of a special camera at the customer's premises ensure that only the plates required for the job are used.

COE has a total of three fully redundant and established production lines at two locations with certified process reliability according to ISO 9001: 2015. An efficient logistics system in the prepress ensures safe, just-in-time or express overnight delivery. This means that Customers already receive the finished printing plates on the following day of the print release and can print. The printing plates are embossed ready for mounting.
