Medical Packaging Printing Solutions

Offline packaging & coding solutions for medical products

Medical packs such as Tyvek pouches are often hand labelled. Rotech offline feeding systems can automate this process or replace the label completely by printing directly onto the pack.

Rotech’s RF1-F friction feeder is a well-proven feeding system for medical packaging printing.

Three technologies stand out for their suitability for the printing of Medical pouches, both of which will withstand gamma and ethylene oxide sterilisation
