The operator places the pharmaceutical packaging units to be labelled against the reference edge of the conveyor belt. As soon as the serialisation data has been applied by the thermal inkjet printer, it is examined by the integrated image processing system for correctness.

If a defect (e.g. insufficient grading) is detected, the respective product is stopped at a position marked by red LEDs.

The removal of the non-conforming packaging must be confirmed by pressing the respective button on the HMI. This ensures that only fully conforming products with correct serial numbers find their way into the shipping carton.

The labelled products are placed in the shipping carton according to a predefined packing layout. When the carton is full, the system produces a serialised shipping label, which is then applied by hand onto the box.
