Pharmaceutical Packaging Serialization Systems for Flat Cartons at PACK EXPO East 2018

 

Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.’s serialization systems mark flat cartons, bags and leaflets to add track and trace information, date/lot codes, UDI codes, and more.

Toronto, ON, January 12, 2018 – Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. will be exhibiting PACK EXPO East at the Pennsylvania Convention Center with a CartonTrac FC – Flat Caron Serialization System.  The CartonTrac Serialization Systems manufactured by Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. is designed for complex coding and high resolution thermal inkjet printing requirements for packaging and pharmaceutical serialization and traceability.  Producing the cleanest codes on the market, verified with an in-line reader and cannot be tampered with, pharmaceutical and packaging cartons are controlled with precision providing codes and data that are superior to inkjet, with zero printing consumables or downtime.  Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.’s serialization and track & trace systems aim to help fight the immense market of counterfeit products and to enhance consumer safety in accordance with legislations, such as the Drug Quality & Security Act (DQSA) and the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).

“This is a robust solution with a small footprint that can be used next to automated cartoners or a work station for hand fill packaging,” states David McCharles, President of Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.  “Our Flat Carton Serialization Systems can print using either laser or inkjet print, making it the most flexible solution on the market,” continues Mr. McCharles.  “The system is a perfect fit for semi-automated packages of pharmaceuticals or even as to pre-serialize cartons before they are filled into the hopper of an automated cartoner.  Both processes ensure 100% accuracy of track and trace serialization codes,” concludes Mr. McCharles.

Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.’s CartonTrac FC – Flat Caron Serialization System has a small footprint measuring 59.50 inches long by 32.56 inches wide.  Serialization requires a comprehensive system to track and trace the passage of packages, prescription drugs and pharmaceutical products throughout the entire distribution and supply chain.  Serialization is able to identify every product’s serial number, origin, shelf life and batch number; tracing the products life cycle from production, through distribution to patient.  With a reliable 1D or 2D barcode reader, pharmaceutical products and packages can be verified to ensure 100% accuracy.  Pineberry manufactured its pharmaceutical and packaging serialization machinery systems so they are modular and can act as leaflet verification systems as well; saving customer’s from purchasing two separate machines.

Lab Automates Serialization

Lab Automates Serialization

System handles cartons or flat blanks.

A large science and medical laboratory contacted Pineberry Manufacturing Inc., Toronto, Canada, to serialize its products and support traceability throughout its supply chain to comply with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) in the U.S. The problem: Limited space necessitated a compact system to print serialized codes on flat pouches and cartons.

A few weeks later, the CartonTrac FC – Flat Carton Serialization System was delivered. Measuring 60 in. long and 32 in. wide, flat cartons are placed on the Pineberry HSF 12 friction feeder and dispensed singly on a vacuum conveyor, which passes a drop-on-demand inkjet printer for application of variable serialized data. An integrated camera system verifies code data before the printed blanks drop into a catch tray.

“CartonTrac flat carton and erect carton serialization systems are available as turnkey systems or as specialty feeding units integrated to existing structures,” says David McCharles, president of Pineberry Manufacturing. “Our ability to adapt to a large, changing industry with heavy regulations has made us a trusted manufacturer in pharmaceuticals and packaging industries,” he notes.

He explains, “The Pineberry CartonTrac Serialization Series marks flat and erect cartons, bags and leaflets to add track-and-trace information, barcodes, date and lot codes, UDI codes, labels, inserts and much more. Our serialization systems produce the cleanest codes on the market, verified with an in-line reader and cannot be tampered with. Cartons are controlled with precision.”

With longer supply chains and rising e-commerce sales providing more opportunities for counterfeiters, regulations to serialize and trace products are or soon will be in place in more than 40 countries. Deadlines set to comply with U.S.’s DSCSA and the European Union’s Falsified Medicines Directive 2011/62/EU (EU-FMD) are fast approaching in 2017 and 2019, respectively. Pharma companies, contract manufacturers and contract packagers should already be taking steps to ensure lines are serialization-ready.

Pineberry Serializes Cartons

Pineberry Serializes Cartons

Erect or flat carton serialization systems can be added to any end-of-line process for efficient traceability printing and coding

The CartonTrac EC erect carton serialization system and CartonTrac FC flat carton serialization system from Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. produce superior print quality with either laser or inkjet and verify the print with a tamper-proof inline reader. Whether erect or flat, laser or inkjet, cartons are controlled throughout the process to ensure print quality and accuracy.

Designed for complex coding and high-resolution printing, the CartonTrac FC serialization system occupies a small footprint (59.5 x 32.6 in.) and marks flat cartons, bags and leaflets with serialized data, date/lot codes, UDI codes and other information.

“This is a robust solution with a small footprint that can be used next to automated cartoners or a work station for hand-fill packaging,” states David McCharles, president of Pineberry Manufacturing. It also can work as a standalone unit to pre-serialize carton blanks prior to loading into the magazine of the cartoner or serve as a leaflet verification system.

On the CartonTrac EC erect carton system, a modular vacuum conveyor simplifies installation on any end-of-line process. Fan-based technology on the vacuum transport dramatically reduces the noise level of a single pump or blower. The serialization solution integrates on any packaging line and addresses the serialization and track-and-trace requirements of various regulatory agencies.

“This is an inline, robust solution with a small footprint that can be added to any end-of-line pharmaceutical process,” explains McCharles.

Serialization requires a comprehensive system to track-and-trace the passage of prescription drugs and pharmaceutical products throughout the supply chain. Serialization makes it possible to identify every product’s serial number, origin, shelf life and batch number so products can be traced from production through distribution to the patient. With a reliable 1D and/or 2D barcode reader, pharmaceutical products can be verified to ensure 100% accuracy.
