Manual serialization|aggregation

Manual serialization and aggregation system for pharmaceutical boxes

This workstation enables the manual serialization of drug packages and their aggregation into shipping cases. For this purpose, each individual box is first printed with order-related serialization data by a thermal inkjet printing system as it passes by and then manually placed in a shipping carton. As soon as it is filled, the downstream thermal transfer label printer creates an individual serialization label.


The correct print data and print quality are permanently monitored by a vision system.





Serialization of filled boxes and one-level aggregation in carton

Serialization of boxes | aggregation in carton | aggregation carton of pallets (two level)

The operator places the medicine products to be serialized on a reference edge at the infeed. As soon as the thermal inkjet printer has printed the serialization data, the integrated vision system checks that the data is correct. If an error is detected (e.g. insufficient grading), the product stops at a certain position marked by red LEDs. The removal of the rejected product must be confirmed by pressing a button on the HMI. This is to ensure that only GOOD products with correct serial numbers are placed in the shipping case.


When the filling quantity per carton is reached according to the specified packing scheme, the system automatically generates a serialized label for the shipping case. It is applied manually by the operator and the application is verified by the handheldscanner. 

Depending on the number of products in the shipping case and the number of aggregation levels, approx. 10 to 12 products/min can be serialized here.
