Screen to be centrepiece of pharma shift
Die Pharmadrucker has installed a Screen Truepress 520HD+ which it plans to make the pivot of its ambitious plan ‘to shift pharmaceutical printing towards a digital, more efficient and flexible future.’
Die Pharmadrucker, a spin-off of the centuries-old German Bernecker printing company, believes it can enhance value creation in the pharmaceutical market for itself and its partners, mostly mid-size and small pharmaceutical companies.
‘We chose Screen’s digital inkjet offering because of its outstanding technology and the Screen team’s flexible and personal approach,’ says Sebastian Härtig, a member of Die Pharmadrucker’s management team.
Screen was able to solve the particular challenge of printing on the thin paper typically used for pharmaceutical leaflets and safety instructions for medicine labels as the Truepress Jet 520HD+ prints on 40gsm paper at offset quality and at high speeds.
The press complete the companies production line, following the installations of machinery for cutting, folding, laying out and packaging.
‘The Screen Truepress 520HD+ will enable our customers to reduce their warehouse storage of pharmaceutical leaflets and so save both storage and scrapping costs,’ finished Mr Härtig. ‘This fits with our ambition to be the best European printer in terms of delivering exactly what our customers need at just the right time.’
