Reduce Risks and Avoid Label Shortages with the Kiaro! Inkjet Label Printer

Medical Device Labeling

Device manufacturers have chosen to print labels on-site with the Kiaro! inkjet label printer in order to avoid periodic label shortages, reduce human labeling errors, and comply with UDI requirements, while maintaining full in-house quality control.

Protection Against Label Shortages

A medical device manufacturer recently had to discard $100,000 in printed labels when it discovered an invalid expiration date. It was forced to delay shipments for two months while it waited for new labels to be created, approved, printed, received, inspected, and applied.

An all-digital color label printer will help you to avoid such problems, immediately filling in the “gaps” when your standard labeling process fails. As you’ll discover, high-speed, reliable digital label printing with the Kiaro! has already paid for itself on the production lines of device manufacturers around the world.

Flexibility Gain

Instantly printing product labels on-site with a desktop, digital color label printer such as the Kiaro! enables you to flex production schedules, changing products and lines anytime it’s necessary.

In combination with an enterprise labeling software such as ROBAR, you will be able to centrally control design while printing color labels locally with a Kiaro! at each production line. Your operations team will be relieved of the burden to manually track label versions and scrap “obsolete” labels!

Mislabeling Risk Reduction

There’s a great deal of mislabeling risk when you rely on pre-printed labels. Human beings are responsible for selecting the correct label, and they make mistakes. The alternative is to adopt a labeling software and digital color printing solution that guarantees that you are always printing the correct label.

Ortho Development Chooses the Kiaro!

“We took on the Kiaro! label printer,” said Moore, “and we did a trial period with it. We found that it printed our labels perfectly, and we fell in love.”

Watch how Ortho Development started printing perfect labels in full color at 1200 dpi with the Kiaro! inkjet printer!

Printing in 1200 dpi has given Carmen Moore perfect packaging; her products are never sent back because her labels don’t meet her distributors’ strict labeling standards.

The Kiaro! and UDI Labeling for Medical Devices

The Kiaro! inkjet label printer is the ideal printer for labeling medical devices to new FDA regulations for UDI labeling.  Together, Innovatum’s ROBAR software and QuickLabel’s Kiaro! on-demand inkjet label printer offer a validated, FDA-compliant solution for printing UDI labels in color from blank stock!

Innovatum’s ROBAR labeling software and QuickLabel’s Kiaro! inkjet label printer work together to create labels that are accurate, cost-efficient, clear, and in-line with UDI labeling regulations.

Save Money by Printing Efficiently

The Kiaro! is the most efficient medical device label printer on the market. It prints at 8 inches per second, always in 1200 dpi, and never wastes labels. Other label printers consume labels during cleaning, when starting and ending runs, or if a run needs to be pauses. With the Kiaro! inkjet label printer no labels are wasted – ever!

The Kiaro!’s robust printer drivers can work with most label design software, including NiceLabel and Bartender®, to give you complete customization of your medical device labels.
