At its ACHEMA booth in Frankfurt (hall 3 booth D95) from 11 to 15 June, the WIPOTEC Group will present an extensive portfolio of integrated serialisation solutions for Track & Trace projects which will meet global serialisation regulations in the shortest possible time.

TQS Fast Track (Traceable Quality System) solutions provide CMOs and pharmaceutical companies with an extremely fast way to achieve FMD compliance.

WIPOTEC-OCS opens up another product focus with its E-M-A checkweigher series which is perfectly matched to the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry thanks to a high degree of modularity. At Achema, companies manufacturing pharmaceutical machines will meet WIPOTEC Weighing Technology, the market leading OEM partner for easily integrated, high-performance weigh cells and weighing kits in the microgram range.

The WIPOTEC-OCS TQS Fast Track portfolio presented at ACHEMA includes the full range of modular systems for the serialisation, aggregation and tamper-evident packaging of individual folding boxes and HDPE pharmaceutical containers through to the entire pallet. Across the whole production process, open XML interfaces ensure flexibility when connecting to different level 3 providers. Leading level 3 partners of WIPOTEC-OCS will offer their assistance at the booth on all issues relating to the unobstructed exchange of data between production, warehousing systems and the enterprise systems.

The focus at the 175 square metre, two-storey ACHEMA booth of the WIPOTEC Group will be on live demonstrations of TQS Fast Track solutions. The solutions can be installed on site and put into real-time use at the premises of interested customers in just a few weeks. The portfolio of Fast Track solutions presented includes the TQS-SP TE, an application system that serialises folding boxes on a minimal footprint. An integrated tamper evidence unit handles tamper-proof sealing of folding boxes to ensure the tamper-evident functionality indispensable for many pharmaceutical products.

The TQS-HC-A TE, which is also demonstration-ready, goes a step further. Equipped with all the features of the TQS-SP TE in terms of product management, serialisation and tamper evidence, it adds a final completeness check using weight acquisition. High-precision weighing of the folding boxes makes it possible to check sealed boxes for the presence of a patient information leaflet. The same applies to verifying the number and filling of blisters in drug packages that are ready for dispatch.

Another live demonstration at the booth presents the TQS-CP Bottle application solution developed for bottles or vials which is ideally suitable for integration into product lines. The system is set up at the exit of labelling machines and enables 360° all-round inspection and omni-directional verification of the labels which have previously been serialised and then applied to the product. Any unreadable or invalid serial numbers result in product ejection. All serialised products are collected by TQS-CP Bottle for semi-automatic aggregation to the target amount. This application solution is also part of the Fast Track portfolio and therefore features the shortest possible implementation times.

There will also be a large number of checkweighers suitable for the pharmaceutical industry on show and ready for demonstration at the WIPOTEC booth. They start with the heavy load checkweighers for dynamic weight acquisition used for palletising pharmaceuticals in the logistics and warehousing sector. The range extends from IP65-specified systems constructed entirely in stainless steel for use in the light and medium humidity environment through to solutions for automated and continuous precision weighing of ultra-lightweight parts (e.g. stick packs) in the milligram range. A four-track pharmaceutical checkweigher for cylindrical products, such as cans, plastic or glass vials, will also be showcased.

Theo Düppre, CEO and founder of the WIPOTEC Group: "We are registering a global increase in market share in the pharmaceutical business segment for all the three product ranges that are Track & Trace and serialisation, weighing technology and product inspection. With the TQS Fast Track line we can guarantee our customers conformity with the EU Directive within the shortest time by offering them an agile product platform for the serialisation and aggregation of products. As the global market leader in high-precision weighing systems with ultra-fast transient response, we are using the ACHEMA as a platform to communicate with customers and persons interested in the field of mechanical engineering in the pharmaceutical industry in order to make their machines and solutions even more efficient. Our third mainstay, the WIPOTEC-OCS checkweighers that stand for precision and speed in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry provide substantial advantage for customers thus increasing revenue worldwide.“

Experts from WIPOTEC will be on hand on all five days of the ACHEMA trade fair to answer questions on Track & Trace projects, the TQS Fast Track serialisation platform as well as checkweighers and weigh cells suitable for the pharmaceutical industry. The WIPOTEC ACHEMA trade fair portal can be used to make appointments and order free entrance tickets for ACHEMA.
