EU TPD II is almost here. Within several months, new legislation will demand health warnings covering 65% of the front and back panel of the pack. Although the exemption period provides an escape for three years to relocate the stamp position, the space above the health warnings is not allowed to be used for branding or other advertisement. By May 2019 the tax stamp has to be relocated on both Hard box and Soft pack.
ITM’s latest development Ceres not only takes on this challenge, but goes even further. By not interfering with the existing stamper, it enables you to swap back and forward between the traditional and the new TPD stamp position.
ITM Ceres in short: EU TPD II ready; full flexible stamp positioning; easy to swap between traditional and TPD stamp position; fast integration with minimum downtime; and one technology for multiple packing platforms
