Serialization, Top and Tamper-evident Labelling Pharma 4

Automatic system for serialization, bollino/vignette application and tamper-evident labelling

Pharma 4 is the most complete system for online Track & Trace, providing in one compact system different functions, e.g. pharmaceutical tracking & tracing and serialization, top labelling (application of bollino/vignette style label, label for Chinese serialization) and tamper-evident labelling with the application of 2 closing seal labels on the flaps of parmaceutical boxes.

This Track & Trace system has 2 main of strong points: reduced bulk, for a quick and easy installation within operating packaging lines, and flexibility, the machine has been designed, both electrically and mechanically, to fit any of the most used  inkjet and vision systems available.

Etipack is partnering with major manufacturers and developers of vision systems for pharmaceutical markets and has designed a modular machine, to meet customers’ requirements and in order to accommodate different tracking and tracing needs worldwide.

Pharma 4  is equipped with failsafe software for the peripheral devices diagnosis complying with  the rules of pharmaceutical market.

This system belongs to the Etipack Pharma line, especially dedicated to labelling, coding, serialization and track and trace of pharmaceuticals; this line has been designed to ensure high standards of quality, safety, productivity and maintenance complying with the guidelines for good manufacturing practice of pharmaceutical markets.

The  Etipack Pharma line includes different labelling machines, labelling systems and friction feeders to handle a variety of products: ampoules, vials, boxes, syringes, single-dose, inhalers, Blow Fill Seal, inspection and inserting of information notices.
