Ready for new legislation
25 January 2013
In anticipation of forthcoming EC legislation on pharmaceutical packaging, which will require the printing of a serialised 2D Datamatrix code on individual packs, Travtec is launching an enhanced version of its Pharmaca
Pharmacarton Lite is a compact version that has been designed to be easily integrated into packaging lines without extension. It provides total control of the carton during the print and vision process to ensure accurate and high quality printing of high density barcodes and 2D codes to ECC200/GS1 standards.
It combines a precision multi-belt conveyor with a synchronised top hold down belt and incorporates the Wolke m600 Advanced high resolution ink jet printer and an OCR/OCV optical character verification system. A fail-to-safety reject unit with pack confirmation further guarantees the authenticity of each coded pack and helps to maintain line speeds. The m600 can print in real time and data can be inputted from a remote server.
