OCS Checkweighers has combined dynamic checkweighing with laser or thermal inkjet coding and camera inspection of pharmaceutical cartons in one system.

The German company has combined with coding and marking system manufacturer Domino and packaging security systems specialist Laetus to demonstrate the three tasks in one compact system.

Domino supplied the coding and marking component, which could be either the company's D-Series laser printer or the new G-Series thermal inkjet printer, to print high quality 2D codes, text, logos, special characters and graphics.

Laetus" offers in-line inspection of print quality with the PrintSpect module, which is said to be easy to operate from the Argus wt touch screen terminal.

OCS says the conveyor and servo drive design of its checkweighers will guarantee reliable product handling. It features an exact rejection system that sorts faulty weights and "out of spec" items.

The new OCS HC Avantgarde checkweigher could be included in the configuration. This features a large revolving and tilting stainless steel control terminal with colour touch screen. The pyramid design makes it easy to clean and there is an optional vibration reducing base for the weigh cells.
