FOCUS Software & Security Systems Integrated software with built-in

process security for printing DIGILINE Single Pharma from Atlantic Zeiser is an end-to-end serialisation system for flat carton boxes that offers process security and it enables packaging printers and contract packers to comply with all current and future serialisation regulations

software ensures that serial numbers are not duplicated and reprinted, even in the event of operating errors, malfunctions or other unusual situations. All the issued serial numbers are permanently and securely saved together with status information in the database for further processing.

Following the recent publication and likely impending adoption by

the EU Commission of the relevant delegated act, pharmaceutical manufacturers will soon be required to serialise their secondary packaging. In addition, the Chinese authorities recently introduced a separate serialisation obligation for veterinary products. In particular for the packaging printers and contract packers that supply pharmaceutical companies, the growing complexity and number of regulations and coding principles is giving rise to major challenges as regards both print quality and data management. At this year's Fachpack exhibition in

Nuremberg, Germany at the end of September, Atlantic Zeiser presented DIGILINE Single Pharma, a new fully integrated system for printing serial numbers on flat carton boxes at high speed and with supreme process security. DIGILINE Single Pharma encompasses not only all of the essential printing, labelling, camera and transport systems, but also the new and powerful code software. It is designed to comply with all current and forthcoming serialisation regulations, including those governing the QR code for veterinary products that will become obligatory in China from next year. This code presents a special challenge because the software has to be capable of processing the plethora of Chinese characters. “Packaging service providers in particular need to respond to the call for fast and error- free delivery,” insists Helmut Schneider, product group manager, packaging at

Atlantic Zeiser. “The pharmaceutical industry imposes very strict requirements as regards product quality and the reporting of production data. In this context, DIGILINE Single Pharma represents an efficient and reliable end-to-end solution for delivering non-duplicated and error-free codes.”

Dependable and flexible Included in the attributes of the unique code software that forms part of the package is the ability to recognise duplication when data are being imported. Highly flexible and efficient production planning is facilitated by the option of apportioning production orders to several machines – without incurring any risk – and of interrupting production to redistribute orders. Integrated order management functions keep a constant check on both machines and orders, even when several machines are operating at the same time in different locations. In combination with inspection cameras, the built-in unique code software enables DIGILINE Single Pharma to make certain that the carton box type, code layout and serial number match one another. Products that do not comply with the prescribed criteria are automatically and reliably removed from the production cycle. In such cases, the unique code

Versatile retrofitting Depending on the user's requirements, the transport system of DIGILINE Single Pharma can accommodate or be retrofitted with various hardware units, such as OMEGA drop-on-demand inkjet printers in a variety of widths, labellers, or inspection cameras, allowing carton boxes to be printed on both sides if required. The packaging division of Atlantic Zeiser ranks among the leading suppliers of individual track & trace system solutions, which monitor product movements, verify authenticity, and reliably protect against counterfeiters. Specifically for the pharmaceutical and cosmetic sectors, the division develops tailored systems to ensure compliant, reliable, fast and cost-efficient application of security features to individual and mass products.
