A long time has passed since tablet printing technology was developed as a technology to minimize dispensing errors (prevention of accidental dosing) by improving identification of tablets, and new technologies have been developed to print even on plain tablets. However, it is insufficient for prevention of dispensing errors to apply tablet printing only to a part of tablets instead of “all tablet in the world.” Therefore, a new tablet printing technology is required to solve the “challenge in the tablet production” to provide more cost effective, more stable and more flexible (applicable to various kind of tablets) tablet printing technology. In this sense, some printing technologies which Freund Corporation has developed are described in this report, and a new tablet printing technology is also introduced here easy to print on all of the tablets in the world and solve the issues in the tablet production. Freund Corporation will continue to develop and provide new technologies for further improvement of dispensing errors.
