Zetesâ€™ Product Serialisation, Identification and Traceability Solutions at Propak 2013
Mar 5th, 13:49
Zetes South Africa, a leading provider of supply chain, identification and mobility solutions will use Propak 2013 to showcase the companyâ€™s expertise in the field of serialisation. Zetes is flying the worldâ€™s first serialisation machine to South Africa for the event and visitors to the show will be provided the opportunity to see the machine in operation.
â€śSerialisation is the first and a very important step in the product identification and traceability process,â€ť comments Karin Parker, Senior Executive â€“ Marketing and Promotions for Zetes South Africa. â€śThe process however involves several more steps including marking/coding, item labelling, data aggregation before and after box labelling, box labelling, pallet labelling and pallet control.â€ť
Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS), one of the largest biopharmaceutical producers in the world, produces 400 million boxes of medicine at its production sites in France. In order to comply with French legislation, that requires every pharmaceutical product distributed on the French market to be marked with a Datamatrix code, BMS partnered with Zetes in the design, production and installation of 25 machines for the purposes of serialisation.
The machines were constructed in line with BMSâ€™ strict requirements with regards to marking, labelling, sealing, quality control and performance. At a rate of 400 containers per minute per packaging line, the machines installed enable BMS to fully control the quality of identified products.
Zetes will use also Propak to introduce the MD3000e launched in Europe in September 2012. The MD3000e, a unique labelling device, is 38% smaller than a typical Print & Apply machine. It gives users all the standard functionality expected of a Zetes print and apply solution, including high speed labelling at item, box, bag and tray level. Furthermore, the MD3000e contributes to reduced manufacturing costs through 68% lower operational energy consumption.
The serialisation process is not complete until accurate verification of the data has taken place. Zetes will showcase its data verification capabilities in the form of Visidot that will be demonstrated live on the stand.
