Packaging System White-Line
Instead of handling a multitude of different packaging materials and leaflets, the concept is based on plain (white) material. The specific information is printed on cartons and leaflets in the packaging line. Inspection and camera systems enable 100 % checks and therefore provide pharmaceutical security. The concept permits many small lots to be bundled to one larger lot. In a conventional packaging line this would mean long changeover times. The changeover to another language is guided by a line management system and is fully automatic. It is accomplished in 10 to 12 min. This enables the use of small lots in blister packaging, frequent changeover of country specific design, and a maximum OEE when handling small lots. The system provides fast changeover and high flexibility in cases of late stage customization.
