QualiVision Print & Check Unit
Data server and control unit for labelling processes (middleware)
QualiVision Print & Check Unit is an integrated all-in-one solution, offering flexible labelling, encoding, personalisation, control and data processing and, in particular, late-stage product customisation. The system coordinates data exchange between different applications and output devices such as printers, read-back systems, user input, ERP systems, data archiving processes and control units.
Operation and process flow
A suitable layout is loaded into the printer via touchscreen user input or ERP system-generated command. Depending on data type, printed data is either stored as fixed text (e.g. product name, Pharmacode, GTIN, etc.), determined as production-specific variables (e.g. expiry date, production lot) or generated internally from the database for each product individually (e.g. serial numbers). Parameters can be adapted automatically from a higher-ranking system or defined manually. Printer and camera system are activated externally. Throughout the production process, the system continually compares printed data against read-back data, controls hardware to safely filter out products with faulty labels and logs ongoing production processes and user inputs. The production process is terminated by an operator. Automatic report generation is optional.
QualiVision Print & Check Unit is based on standard software. The system is available for consumer goods, food and industrial products. Solutions are additionally available for pharmaceutics, cosmetics and medical equipment.
The system consists of a small cabinet with touchscreen user interface, compact computer and data interfaces to labelling devices, code scanners, cameras and image/data processing systems.
