Description

The CTE450 is a fully automatic labelling system which applies a wide range of self-adhesive tamper-evident labels, anti-counterfeit and hologram labels to erected cartons. It has been designed primarily for the pharmaceutical industry where high levels of production efficiency will be a prerequisite for the introduction of Track and Trace systems onto existing packaging lines compatible with the EU Falsified Medicines Directive and other global Serialisation initiatives. The CTE450 is also highly energy-efficient, compact and incorporates full Newman ‘validation-friendly’ specifications.

Operation

At the infeed, cartons are separated, held between top and bottom belts, past the Print and Inspect station where Serialised codes can be printed and then verified by a Vision system. Cartons are then transported past two stepper motor-driven label stations. Labels are dispensed on to the overhanging vertical faces of the carton and applied with a roller. Aeroplane and reverse tuck formats can be accommodated. Cartons proceed to the sensing station where sensors detect label presence prior to wipe down. Both labels must be present for a carton to be accepted; if not, it is ejected into a secure reject area.
