Compatible! Modular weighing and inspection technology
We offer OEM components tailored exactly to your machines and applications as well as complete checkweigher solutions. Target industries include mainly the food and pharmaceutical sectors, although our products are used in many machines and lines in other industries. Our modular weighing and inspection technology is space saving, incorporates perfectly into the production and packaging lines you manufacture, and guarantees your customers the highest precision and throughputs.
The Track & Trace solutions aimed specifically at the needs of pharmaceutical manufacturers are of highly flexible, modular design. With the first-class service from Wipotec and the low maintenance requirements of our systems, we ensure that you and your customers are highly satisfied from the start.
In the following, you will learn more about the areas of application of Wipotec weighing and inspection technology in the mechanical engineering sector.
We offer high-performance weighing solutions
In view of the fierce global competition, machine manufacturers are dependent on competitive weighing solutions. Our Checkweighers represent a cutting edge technology allowing you to maintain your competitive advantage. With constantly high belt speeds and the smallest object spacings, the weigh cells determine the exact weight value at lightning speed. We are renowned for compact integration into your machines or production lines.
As space-saving devices integrated into your packaging machines, our checkweighers with Wipotec Weigh Cells measure the exact filling weight of packages and send the data to your output devices. Thanks to this information, filling quantities can be regulated without wasting time and packages with the wrong weight can be ejected. The high measuring accuracy of the Wipotec Weigh Cell and checkweigher is optionally supported by Active Vibration Compensation (AVC) by filtering out disturbing vibrations and shocks in the environment. AVC thus enables Wipotec weighing technology to be used even in environments that are not free of vibration, and the active compensation process does not affect either the accuracy or the product throughput.
TQS - Flexible Serialization & Aggregation Solutions
With TQS (Traceable Quality System) we provide a state-of-the-art Serialization & Aggregation solution for packaging lines in the pharmaceutical industry. These systems permit the complete traceability of medicines along the entire supply chain. This feature will make a significant contribution to the safety of medicines according to the requirements of several national regulations, e.g. the EU Falsified Medicines Directive coming into effect February 2019 and supports the exposure of pharmaceutical counterfeiters. The TQS portfolio comprising stand-alone and integration solutions that adapt flexibly to your application requirements. Whether you are looking for a serialization machine or an integrated aggregation solution for a case packer, we are the right partner for you.
Machine readable coding ensures a globally unique product classification in the form of a serial number, combined with a Tamper-Evident label on each individual pack, to form the basis for consumer protection against counterfeit drugs. Serialization and continuous aggregation provides transparency of product origin all the way to retail sale and creates trust and security in the market. The serialization of individual boxes begins with the stable positioning on receipt from the cartoner.The labels are then applied as required to the front or back side, or the top of each folding box. Thanks to the compact design of the labeler, a Tamper-Evident label can be applied to prevent illegal opening of the original box. The TQS top conveyor system transports the folding boxes from the cartoner and has demonstrated maximum flexibility in adapting to the most varied of folding box dimensions
Aggregation: TQS provides optimal Serialization & Aggregation implementation
The series of machines in the Traceable Quality System (TQS) provides delivers a format independent aggregation for all packaging levels (sets, cartons, palettes) tailored for the individual requirements of every customer. TQS enables the consolidation of the serial numbers of multiple individual packs into a separate unique serial number for the set. in In addition to semi-automatic aggregation of manually repacked cartons, where the operator places previously aggregated sets lengthwise into the shipping carton. The operator conveniently assigns the units from a lower packaging level (e.g., folding box) to a higher level (e.g., sets or shipping cartons). Therefore, a hierarchical relationship is created in the database.
Inspection Technology tailored to your needs
Our X-ray product line specializes in the detection of foreign bodies in foods and other products. At the same time the high-tech Wipotec X-ray scanners contribute to product optimization and thus increasing productivity. They monitor filling levels, the shape and condition of packages, as well as check for damages, completeness and flawlessness of products and trays. Due to its compact design and modularity, our X-ray technology can be easily and swiftly integrated into your production lines.
Metal elements in the package do not affect the measured result, instead they can also be checked for completeness. The high-resolution X-ray images are shown on the display in real time and are used to log ejected products and production optimization. Metal detectors detect dangerous metal chips in packed and unpacked foods that are then withdrawn from the product flow.
