Labels and laser marking - identification in healthcare

In hospitals and clinics, medical offices, pharmacies and labs many things are relevant to health. Samples in tubes, vials or ampoules, for example, must be assigned reliably, as must patients and medication in the course of treatment. Personal data require confidentiality. Medical instruments must be traceable to its smallest component at any time. To avoid errors, handwriting is out of date. cab provides reliable equipment, intuitive and highly adaptable, if

Fully automatic labeling: applicators for any operation

Every industrial plant has specific requests for fully automatic labeling. Cycle times are decisive, so are variable to be processed at high speed. Whether objects are at rest or moved on a conveyor when being labeled may be as well of importance, as well as the direction from which labels are to be applied. HERMES Q and SQUIX printing systems by cab can be individually combined with applicators or a

Systems dedicated to labeling / Micro-screw tubes as a sample
