WIPOTEC-OCS Offers Three-in-One Checkweigher with Serialization and Tamper-Evident Functionality

TQS-HC-A-TE 3-in-1 CheckweigherWIPOTEC-OCS announced it offers a compact three-in-one checkweigher/serialization/temper-evidence module for pharmaceutical applications with a small footprint machine design. The TQS-HC-A-TE Checkweigher also offers the precision weight monitoring for which the company is known, plus added traceability and anti-counterfeiting elements increasingly required on pharmaceutical packaging lines.

The unit is literally bookended by built-in quality control: its lead acronym, “TQS,” stands for “Traceable Quality System,” indicating the machine’s ability to perform such serialization-centric duties as in-line printing of batch or unique product identifiers, print verification, and the ability to add extra sensory data to a product’s unique identifier.

“TE” indicates that the machine is equipped with tamper-evident labeling systems on both sides, allowing pharma manufacturers to seal the insertion flaps of folding boxes or even apply further anti-counterfeiting vignettes from above. Combined, the traceability and tamper-evidence elements provide compliance with all foreseeable worldwide serialization, including the U.S. Drug Supply Chain Security Act and the European Union’s Falsified Medicines Directive.
