Track & Trace Workstation: serialization in pharmaceutical packaging

Trackflat. Flat cartons serialization, at your fingertips.

Robust and compact, Trackflat is a stand-alone machine in stainless steel, for serialization in pharmaceutical packaging, conceived to serialize flat cartons and is ideal to manage small and medium batches. Once serialized, the cartons are ready to be packaged on existing cartoners.
A solution built to approach to automatic or manual packaging lines, which need to be quickly compliant to the serialization requirements.

Lightweight and compact

Integrated vision system

Quick format change

User friendly interface

Track&Trace Rapid compliance

Versatility and efficiency

Made to fulfill every the packaging serialization of small and medium-sized batches

Trackflat is the best solution in terms of accuracy to rapidly-produce serialized batches, from small to medium-sized.

TrackFlat guarantees ergonomics and accessibility to batch operations. The open frame structure offers a visual control on all the process phases, as the automatic management of the rejects through the expulsion in the dedicated bin. Thanks to the small footprint, the workstation can be positioned everywhere for production spaces optimization.

The workstation displays inspection results in real-time, and carries out clear, precise, and understandable work instructions to guide operators. A risk-free production is ensured thanks to the integrated vision system, able to eject flawed products containing print defects or low ANSI Grading quality.

FEATURES AND COMPLIANCE

Compact workstation, compliant to regulations

The cartons are manually positioned into an infeed storage and from here, by means of two conveyor belts working with different speeds, are automatically spaced and transferred to the printing and inspection stations. The presence of feed rolls guarantees the cartons are maintained flattened for highly precise transport. Flat cartons can be printed with different layouts for each batch, depending on the customer requirements and the destination market.

The next operation consists in checking codes and data printed on the cartons by means of a high resolution camera, inspecting all the products and managing the possible rejects, which are then transferred in a safe dedicated bin. Variable data from a specific process order, including lot number, expiry date and serial number are checked in both human readable and 1D/2D code formats.

During the control, an elevated quality and safety standard is guaranteed thanks to the ANSI Grading inspection. Once the information printed on the cartons has been checked, the good cartons are placed into a vertical storage, from which they are manually retrieved to be transferred to the following phases.

The system is specifically designed for the pharmaceutical market, and it is compliant with the industry regulations, with user access regulated by FDA 21 CFR part 11 and annex 11. All events are registered by the software in an audit trail file to keep track of all the security-relevant activities.

The continuous Software development follows Gamp 5, to always improve products quality and consistency.

The core of Trackflat

A powerful inspection and automation software: Tracker

The workstation includes Tracker, a powerful system, completely developed in-house by SEA Vision. Tracker is capable to perform complete sets of inspection on 1D, 2D codes, data matrix and OCV/OCR controls on characters in a completely trusty way and allows the complete serialization and aggregation of the products according to GS1 standards and worldwide Track&Trace regulations (e.g. DSCSA for the USA, EU-FMD for Europe). Tracker communicates with Level 3 and Level 4 serialization software for serial numbers provisioning and posting operations.

The key for automation

Logi-C virtual PLC

The latest generation systems of SEA Vision include a virtual PLC, in always more performant software. Logi-C is the new software tool developed by SEA Vision to program complex automation logic. The smart tool is useful to perform different automation processes, with the help of guided instructions. Logi-C works just like a traditional PLC, adding more power and configurability.

A cost-effective and secure solution

Fully integrated with yudoo

When the lack of space for a serialization station becomes a limiting factor, Trackflat is the right solution to solve this issue, and requires significantly lower investment efforts.

The solution’s software is natively integrated with Yudoo, the 4.0  pharmaceutical software suite for the full management of automation processes, digital quality, data analysis and for Track&Trace. A digital hub that is everywhere accessible through a secure-access web interface or dedicated devices.

A scalable and modular suite, including tools for automation (centralized management of production, workflows and timesheet), for the digital quality (creation of paperless systems, support systems for line clearance operations), for data analysis (analysis of production data, business intelligence dashboard, condition monitoring and predictive maintenance) and for Track and Trace (complete solutions for Level 3 and 4 of serialization, monitoring of serialization operations).

Yudoo offers multiple advantages such as the possibility to centralize production formats and data, avoiding duplicates and reducing work time. The suite can connect to existing company systems to retrieve updated data exactly from where they are.
