CARTON TRACKER™

FAST AND ACCURATE SERIALIZATION FOR CARTONS

 

The CartonTracker™ performs printing and verification of up to 400 cartons per minute. A unique identifying number and other batch details (expiry date, batch number, etc.) are printed on the cartons. This automated system provides great stability for printing and inspection, and includes an integrated ejection compartment for rejected cartons. The software enables the generation of reports for production monitoring and auditing. The CartonTracker is an ideal solution where it is not possible to position cameras or printers. This unit can be customized or preconfigured.

The CartonTracker is part of OPTEL’s fast track to serialization solutions that are preconfigured to enable pharmaceutical packaging lines to meet compliance fast.
These solutions are easy to operate and require minimal training—a perfect solution to meet tight regulatory compliance deadlines.

HOW IT WORKS

The cartons arrive at the level of
the CartonTracker on a conveyor
belt and at this point a unique
identifying number and other batch
details (expiry date, batch number,
etc.) are printed. At this stage, the
identification number is classified as
“encoded.”

After printing, the camera inspects
the quality and the details printed
on the carton. The details are
verified against the batch recipe and
once they are approved, the unique
identification number is changed to
“commissioned” or “active.”

The OPTEL software validates all
the printed details and generates a
report of all the activities (encoding,
commissioning, destruction, sample,
etc.) for production monitoring and
auditing.

Cartons that fail the inspection are
removed from the line through an
integrated ejection system.
