Pharmaceutical Counterfeiting

Pharmaceutical Counterfeiting

Safe, anti-counterfeiting laser marking for pharmaceutical tablets

Marking tablets with simple brand or product identifiers is no longer enough. You must now take steps to ensure your pharmaceuticals are reaching doctors and patients safely and without compromise.

Adding identifying marks to tablets before applying the coating is a proven anti-counterfeiting measure. Laser tablet marking systems are integral to this process—allowing you to change marks quickly and easily between batches and medications.

Our tablet marking systems guard against pharmaceutical counterfeiting by permanently marking unique patterns, 2D codes, expiration dates, logos and other characters onto tablets. From caplets to soft gels, they mark multiple tablet types and sizes without adversely affecting the quality or safety of the product. We can build anti-counterfeiting systems as standalone tablet markers or combine them with our tablet drillers.
