Vericode Track and Trace

Vericode Track and Trace is a complete range of solutions for carton Mark&Verify machines and aggregation systems for Pharmaceutical Serialization. Vericode Track and Trace solutions are the result of more than ten years of experience in pharmaceutical lines for the in-line printing and verification of variabile data and 2D codes. Our System includes print and inspection as one only process: the Vericode Track and Trace Software, entirely developed by Metapack, allows to manage any aspect of the print and camera set-up from the same HMI, regardless of the adopted specific printing system.

Vericode software

Vericode Track and Trace software is conceived to work with the usual HP based printing systems (“thermal ink jet”) but is also prepared for other printing systems like laser, DOD UV and so on. Camera inspection is based on COGNEX vision systems, being Metapack a Certified System Integrator (CSI) of Cognex.

VeriCode systems are 21CFR-Part11 compatible.

VERICODE TTE

Top version for the serialization and application of TE labels, with Positive Transport - speed up from 20 to 450 ppm

The TTE machine is the most popular model among the VeriCode range of Mark & Verify machines for Pharmaceutical Serialization. It is the result of more than ten years of experience in the pharmaceutical lines for the in-line printing and verification of variabile data and 2D codes, where print and inspection are managed as one only process.

Conceived with a positive transport system with servo-driven flighted belts, the TTE model guarantees print accuracy at any speed within 20-450 cartons per minute.

The Vericode Track and Trace HMI Software, entirely developed by Metapack, allows to manage any aspect of the print and camera set-up from the same HMI, regardless of the adopted specific printing system. Among the key SW features: the agile management of print and camera layout that facilitates the setup of recipes and their management.

As well as any Vericode  Track and Trace machine, the HMI control software is conceived to work with the usual HP based printing systems (“thermal ink jet”, or “TIJ”), but is also prepared for other printing systems like laser, DOD UV and so on. Camera inspection is based on COGNEX vision systems, being Metapack a Certified System Integrator (CSI) of Cognex.

Vericode Track and Trace systems are all 21CFR-Part11 compliant.

Vericode Track and Trace machines are available with a proprietary L1-L2 management system that is opened to third-parties L3 infrastructures. TTE model is available to integrate any third-party L1 serialization management system. This flexibility and “open” approach to integrate third-party L2-L3 solutions is well appreciated as a future-proof feature.

TTE model is designed for boarding up to three concurrent Mark&Verify stations and for the application of Tamper Evident Labels on both flaps of the folding, with related verification. The machine can be also supplied complete of:

  •      Integrated Vignette application on the top of the cartons
  •      Infeed module with CheckWeigher and dedicated reject box,
  •      managed within the same machine HMI
  •      Double Reject Box
  •      Weight scale

VERICODE TTF

Top compact version for the serialisation of cartons with Positive Transport - speed up to 400 ppm

TTF machine is the most compact and high-speed VeriCode machine.

As well as TTE model, it features a positive transport system with servo-driven flighted belts, for print accuracy at any speed within 20-400 cartons per minute.

The Vericode Track and Trace HMI Software, entirely developed by Metapack, allows to manage any aspect of the print and camera set-up from the same HMI, regardless of the adopted specific printing system. Among the key SW features, the agile management of print and camera layout facilitating the setup of recipes and their management.

All general “VeriCode features” apply.  This model can board up to two concurrent Mark&Verify stations and can be optionally supplied complete of:

  • Integrated Vignette application on the top of the cartons
  • Infeed module with CheckWeigher and dedicated reject box, managed within the same machine HMI
  • Double Reject Box
  • weight scale

VERICODE TTV

Compact version with vacuum-based transport for productions over a wider format range – Speed up to 300 ppm

Vericode TTV model is the most flexible and compact version of machine capable of printing and verifying variable data and 2D codes on the widest range of pharmaceutical cartons. It manages print and machine vision processes as one integral system thanks to the VeriCode software, fully developed by Metapack.

Print and control can be done on the side or on the top of the carton, with no-tool change over in a fast way.

The main feature of Vericode TTV design is the carton transportation system which integrates an aligning side-belts section followed by a vacuum conveying section. This solution allows to process a wide range of cartons, very different in dimensions, in a stable and reliable way.

Print can be performed on the flap or on the top of the carton, with no-tool change over reduced to few minutes.

The encoder tracking based on the servomotor encoder allows to track the carton all along the print and verification process. At the end of the transport, a sensor checks that the correct input-output sequence is maintained in all the situations.

All general “VeriCode features” apply.  This model can board up to two concurrent Mark&Verify stations and can be optionally supplied complete of:

  • Integrated Vignette application on the top of the cartons
  • Infeed module with CheckWeigher and dedicated reject box, man aged within the same
    machine HMI
  • Double Reject Box
  • Frame on pivoting wheels, for being moved in different off-line operations
  • Weight scale
