Incoming goods control
Laboratory-based specialists check the incoming raw materials for specific properties such as tack (initial adhesion), release (adhesion strength), adhesive application weight and many others.
Quality assurance in printing
High quality is assured through a controlled production process and by means of spot checks. Proof readers check and approve the incoming print data. Once the printing machines have been set up, the samples are checked by revisers using electronic devices (such as scanners, barcode verifiers and cameras). Once underway, the production process is monitored by the machine operators and by final inspection staff. The latter check the finished printed products before they are released for packing and dispatch.
Quality assurance in engineering
In engineering, quality inspection is standardised and conducted according to detailed inspection instructions and checklists. The labelling systems can be validated upon customer request. Validation is a documented and traceable inspection according to the pharmaceutical industry standard GAMP (Good Automated Manufacturing Practice).
