Track & Trace

The right hardware solution for every production level

Wherever you may need assistance, we’re there to help. We offer you the right serialization hardware for every production level in combination with state-of-the-art digital technology.

Our machines and workstations go into action right where you need them and are tailored to your requirements. They are usable as separate solutions or integrated into third-party systems for secondary and tertiary packaging. Moreover, all of our serialization solutions combine the best features of both worlds: robust hardware and state-of-the-art digital technology for aggregation and coding for every production level from Level 1 to Level 5.

Everything from a single source: Our serialization and aggregation systems

ItemUnit

The ItemUnit is a modular system for the online coding, serialization, and verification of individual pharmaceutical packages. Its main features are:

  • Precisely running four-lane conveyor belt    
  • Labeling and serialization.
  • Inkjet and laser printing of serial number and variable data such as expiry date, batch number and Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) as text and machine-readable code.
  • Camera checks of printing quality and verification of data
  • Reject system and batch controller

Depending on requirements, the ItemUnit inspects preprinted folding boxes and reads the serial numbers or prints the folding boxes with codes using inkjet or laser printing. Printed codes can be checked and verified using the tried and tested Körber VisionKits or Cognex Insight smart cameras. It’s also possible to apply and check tamper-evident seals and to determine a product’s stipulated properties such as its weight and dimensions. Incorrect boxes are automatically sorted out and rejected.

The ItemUnit has an integrated label designer for the print layout as well as configurable software features so that it can be adapted to all regulations worldwide with minimal effort. If the ItemUnit is used as an inline solution, the boxes are automatically transported to the next stage of the packaging process after they have been serialized. When combined with manual product removal, it can also be used as an independent solution.
