Serialized labels inspection and printing station
Labels are a key component in pharmaceutical packaging lines as they include a lot of data. Multiple packaging lines require many label print formats to be used with different products. Packaging lines using manual labor use separate stations for printing, inspection and serialization of label reels. But multiple stations increase the product cycle time, reduce productivity and may even jeopardize product quality with human handling. A single automatic workstation integrates all activities of printing, control and serialization of a variety of label reels for multiple products such as ampoules and vials.
