PrintSpect handling system

The PrintSpect handling system introduced by German firm Laetus is the fruit of 35 years" experience in the pharmaceutical machine vision, control and security fields.

The company says the system meets all medicine identification standards such as EFPIA or the French CIP 13 regulation (GS1 Data Matrix), to be enforced by 31 December 2010.

PrintSpect is equipped with a conveyor and two vacuum belts that control each carton, leaving the entire superior surface and both sides accessible for marking. It supports any kind of printing or marking device to guarantee an optimum data matrix quality.

The Laetus Inspect wt camera system performs the quality measurement, conforming to ANSI/ASCII standards and inspects the sell-by date, batch number and marketing authorisation number. Only products of acceptable quality will be allowed to pass through to the rest of the packaging process.

The control camera is linked to the marking device and only one adjustment is necessary for printer and camera set-up. Invalid or wrongly printed material will be rejected safely by an integrated eject station.

There is a choice of three conveyor models in widths from 0.70m to one metre, handling from 150 to 400 cartons a minute.

PrintSpect is compliant with pharmaceutical requirements, made from stainless steel and easy to service.
