The oxygen concentrators are being disrupted across Thailand

Harn is using its seven-colour machine to digitally print full colour labels incorporating variable data QR codes, which are then applied to oxygen concentrators being used in the fight against Covid-19 in Thailand.

The unique QR codes are used for online traceability of the oxygen concentrators, thus playing a major role in the country’s Covid-19 efforts.
 
Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn granted the Chaipattana Foundation permission to use funds from the Chaipattana Covid-19 Aid Fund to acquire the high-flow oxygen concentrators, which are being distributed on loan, for free, to hospitals and first responders.

Dr. Jain Charnnarong, president of the Recipients of Ananda Mahidol Foundation, says: “It is vital that the print quality of the unique variable data QR codes is of a high resolution and consistent quality for scanning purposes. 

“There is an important and robust disinfection procedure to ensure hygiene and safety standards of the oxygen concentrators, which necessitates thorough cleansing with alcohol wipes before they are dispatched to the next patient. This means that the labels must be capable of maintaining print quality and readability of the QR codes, after withstanding repeated wipes.
 
“The Domino N610i label press enabled us to meet these demands and digitally print these labels. We are pleased that we have been able to support this essential project in the fight to combat this unprecedented and devastating pandemic.”
