High-Speed, Precise Vial Coding
The increased need for product identification and traceability, especially prior to labeling, has forced the pharmaceutical industry to implement coding and code verification on existing or new packaging lines.
The VCV-MD Vial Coding & Verification Platform is specifically designed for high-speed and accurate coding of unlabeled vials. With its own PLC and separately validated controls the VCV can be integrated within an existing packaging line, or run as a stand-alone machine. It is capable of handling vials at speeds well above 300ppm.
In this video, filled and capped vials are accumulated on a bi-flow table and then coded on the plastic cap area with a CIJ ink jet printer. The code is UV ink 2D, but can also be alpha-numeric. The code is inspected and rejected vials are sent to a reject lane. The coded vials are again accumulated and fed to an automatic tray loader. To learn more about vial coding, contact Weiler today.
