OTC, Supplements And Nutraceuticals

While the regulations governing supplements and nutraceuticals are often less strict than those governing pharmaceuticals, many countries enact consumer protection laws that put additional pressure on companies selling supplements. Manufacturers should choose flexible coding and marking solutions to be able to comply with future regulations without costly disruptions.

Labels and bottles

When printing on labels and bottles the main challenges include:

  • Integration with the labeling machine and matching the printer speed with the constant start/stop motion of labeling.
  • Printing a relatively large amount of information in a small area.

Our advantages in labels and bottles application include

High-resolution printers

Able to print human and machine-readable codes on very small spaces.

Experience with difficult integrations

We have successfully installed printers on many labeling lines, including ones where space is at a premium. Our standard setup includes a special encoder that syncs the printer with constant speed changes in the labeling machine.

Our advantages in sachets application include

Cost competitive solutions

To minimize per code costs.

High-resolution printers

Suitable for printing large amounts of high definition text on small spaces.

Specialized handling systems

For printing on multi-lane production lines.

Specialized inks

To print on adhesion resistant metalized films.

Small footprint systems

To allow integration into production lines where space is at a premium.

Flexible packaging

Improper printing technology or ink selection can lead to smudged prints on laminated and non-porous surfaces, especially on fast moving production lines that leave little time for ink to dry.

Control Print carries the widest selection of printing technologies and inks in India, and can offer the most cost competitive solution to meet your coding and marking requirements.

Coding on tubes requires different solutions due to the irregular printing surface and a very small print area.

Our advantages in tubes application include

Industry leading throw distance

50 mm throw distance creates high quality prints even on highly curved surfaces.

Highly accurate printers

With careful calibration our highly accurate printers can create legible prints even in very small spaces.

Small footprint solutions

To allow integration even when space at the line is at a premium.

Recommended printers


Cartons and outer packaging, while technically simple to print, can be challenging due to the amount of information that needs to be printed on a small space.

Blisters and strips

A highly nonporous and reflective surface is perhaps the biggest challenge when it comes to printing on strips and blisters.

Our advantages in blisters and strips application include

Proprietary handling systems

Suitable for multi-lane product lines that require several printheads.

Wide selection of printing technologies and inks

For producing high quality, high contrast codes on aluminum, plastic coated and other difficult to print on surfaces.
