The challenge

Solutions for Levels 1 to 5

Forgery-proof packaging

Your challenge:
Counterfeit products and recalls

According to a study by the World Health Organisation (WHO), counterfeits are thought to make up one tenth of the worldwide medicines trade. This endangers the lives of millions of people and causes pharmaceutical manufacturers to lose billions in sales every year. As a result, many countries require pharmaceutical manufacturers to fulfill strict regulations in order to prevent counterfeiting. An example of this is EU Directive 2011/62/EU, which came into force in 2019.
Fulfilling these comprehensive and complex regulations often poses significant logistical and technical challenges for pharmaceutical manufacturers. In particular for small and medium-size enterprises since the regulations often have to be implemented within a short span of time.

Our solutions:
Security through serialization

Adapt your production operations to new market requirements and legal stipulations. Our state-of-the-art software solutions, machines, and workstations enable you to do so in a very short time.

Our track & trace solutions provide every packaging unit with product-related data (including a serial number, if desired) as well as an electronic “family tree” that enables every sales unit to be allocated to a larger packaging unit.

Our vision systems for image evaluation and the optional Cognex Smart Cameras meet the highest code-reading standards.

Our Level 3 system solutions let you control production centrally and without complications. These systems transmit serial numbers and production data via interfaces to higher-level systems, such as Arvato CSDB and SAP, on Levels 4 and 5.
We also provide you with comprehensive advice about solutions that optimize your production operations. Additionally, we will draw up a multi-system strategy according to your specifications and handle its implementation — at your company as well as at your suppliers.

Codes that contain production-related data enable every single sales unit to be verified.

Unambiguous labeling,
problem-free tracking and tracing

We will support you to forgery-proof your products, providing you with advice, implementing individual project steps, and setting up complete production processes.

Printing & verification

The sales unit receives a code that contains variable production-related data such as the batch number, the expiry date, and the verification of the printed information.


The sales unit receives a code that contains the serial number and variable data as well as verification of the printed information.

Serialization & aggregation

The sales unit receives an electronic code that allocates the sales unit to a larger packaging unit, which can range from a bundle to a cardboard box or a pallet.
