Fully automatic serialization system for serialization of flat folding boxes

This powerful HSF friction feeder is the optimal solution when empty folding boxes have to be marked with variable data offline from the production line. The modular design of the system enables an easy integration of the desired marking technology. 

The HSF separates the folding boxes from the stack in the infeed magazine. The cartons are guided to the printing station by two parallel running belt conveyors. Print information could be e.g. serialisation data in the form of bar codes or data matrix codes and text. Depending on requirements, thermal inkjet, laser coders or label print- and apply systems can be used (also in combination).

The printed data is inspected and verified by an integrated vision system. The b+b Linemanager recognized all 21CFR Part 11 data for each serial number and is able to report this back to the Siteserver system (e.g. b+b Siteserver) 
Folding boxes inspected by the camera as unusable are automatically rejected by a rejection unit. A shingling conveyor belt takes over the finished boxes and can group them for manual pick up.
The performance of the system is adjustable between 10 and 30 m/minute. The HSF is easy to operate and uncomplicated to handle via the Touchpanel HMI. The system can be moved during multiple production line (lockable castors). As an option we supply the system with a labelling module (vignettes).
