Fully integrated system for Late Stage Customization and/or Serialization of flat carton in one single pass – in color.
Atlantic Zeiser DIGILINE Versa is a fully integrated and modular system for late stage customization in color and/or serialization of flat and glued cartons in one single pass.
The stand-alone system combines multitude up-to-date technologies for an efficient and process safe turnkey solution. It assures that all of todays and future serialization requirements can be fulfilled – including the serialization with QR-code for Chinese veterinary medicine.
The late stage customization functions enables the production of many different country specific styles starting from almost blank carton, thus considerably reducing the number of carton variants to be managed with respect to procurement, storage space and stock keeping. Emerging demand for special or only in small quantities required styles, design changes and test batches are manufactured with shortest process time, close to demand and just in time. The application range is processing of folding carton in pharmaceutical environment.
The system is optimized for operation at:
• Folding box manufacturers
• Packaging operations in front of packaging lines eliminating the need for upgrades with serialization equipment
• In shipment centers in which flat cartons get erected and filled with high value products possibly on demand and in low quantities
The high precision transport can hold, depending on the specific demand, different ink jet printer types such as the well-proven monochrome spot color ink jet printers of the OMEGA family that are available with a print width from 36 to 210 mm. The excellent transport quality results in combination with the brand new OMEGA Pro color inkjet printers – specifically developed for late stage customization applications – into a highest possible print quality.
A line scan camera verifies for late stage customization applications all of the prints made on the carton. An eject mechanism assures that only good products arrive on the delivery. Components of the well-proven and successful DIGILINE Single 450 complement the DIGILINE Versa system. These components are: label unit, e.g. for Italian Bollini, intermix camera as well as the Unique Code Software that assures process safety for serialization. Interfaces to database systems of ISA level 3 and 4 are integrated.
