NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2016 — Photoscribe Technologies Inc. has announced upgrades for their LMC and LMF lasers. The lasers provide traceability when packaging is being marked with unique identification and when pills are branded with logos. They do not use any consumables, making integration of the laser cleaner and more cost-efficient. The LMC laser has the ability to mark at a rate of up to 410,000 pills/hour with dual laser head usage. The LMC is exceptional for drilling as well, particularly for fast and slow time release of medication. A CO2 laser, it is available in either air or water-cooled versions with a fully sealed design providing superior performance and reliability. The LMF-UV, a new UV marking laser specifically designed for caplets and tablets, produces a very high resolution with laser sensitive additives, multilayered coatings and caplets marking. The technology provides nearly perfect beam quality and exceptional stability over the operating range for high-contrast, low-damage marking. The LMF-UV spot size can go down to 5 µm in diameter for crisp, high-resolution marking.
