Pharmaceutical Serialisation Set New Standards

The new XS2 MV system is one of the most compact complete serialisation and checkweighing solutions at present on the market allowing a seamless integration in near to all production lines with the absolute minimum of production line re-engineering. There are three major plus points which make the XS2 MV so innovative and interesting for multinational pharmaceutical companies:

  • Outstanding OEE – The Overall Equipment Effectiveness of the system has been designed to deliver a system OEE value of 99.98%
  • Flexibility – The XS2 MV has been designed to be a standard solution which will satisfy the requirements of near to all pharmaceutical production lines where global deployment is planned. It also has enough flexibility to offer a large range of optional extras and bespoke solutions where a standard solution is not possible
  • Designed for trusted partners – The XS2 MV has been designed to function with a multitude of world leading marking and camera systems giving complete freedom to choose components from suppliers already designated as "trusted partners" which greatly simplifies the integration into IT networks by using tried and tested data communication protocols

All components, which include world leading ink jet printing or laser marking systems, high-resolution verification cameras, mechanical transfer units, sorting devices and extremely accurate weighcell technology, have been finely tuned to work in perfect unison even at extremely high speeds up to 90 m/min*.

The XS2 MV’s high precision mechanical transfer unit takes the collapsible box direct from the cartoner and transfers it to the printer in the optimal position for serialisation marking. The marking is verified for legibility and correctness using a very sensitive optical camera system and then transferred to the weighing platform. The XS2 MV can optionally detect if the box has open flaps or is not correctly aligned to protect the printer head and downstream bundle packaging equipment. All cartons where the marking or weight cannot be 100% verified as being "good" are reliably rejected into the lockable catch bin. Finally all "good" boxes are safely transferred to the customer’s conveyor for further processing.

The XS2 MV is fully compliant with current regulations and guidelines for the many different Track & Trace concepts at present in use. The open software interface concept eases communication with all standard data protocols and network systems with simple upgrade procedures for future Track & Trace requirements where standards may change or are evolving.

The XS2 MV system is a complete serialisation and checkweighing solution giving Track & Trace capabilities to existing or new production lines with the highest degree of flexibility presently available on the market.
