The S350, along with all of Newman Labelling’s systems, is fully compatible with the track and trace requirements of the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) and is available with comprehensive validation support and a wide range of printing and inspection systems.
The S350, on show at Interpack, has been designed to operate 24/7 at a true production rate of up to 300 containers per minute with high levels of efficiency according to DIN 8743. It is capable of applying both paper and clear plastic labels to cylindrical containers in glass, plastic, metal and composite materials. Both label and container size changes can be rapidly achieved without the use of tools and digital scales provide repeatable container changeover in minutes.
A compact cGMP Design, manufactured in stainless steel 304 finish, the S350 comes with a range of features as standard, such as ‘Auto-teach’ label length facility, a positive accept security system and In Process Control.
The latest data-bus technology has been utilised within the machine, so as to simplify the integration of security and ancillary devices such as Visions Systems to ensure full compatibility with the Track and Trace requirements of the FMD. The S350 at Interpack will be displayed with a working Vision System to demonstrate these capabilities and effectiveness.
A further enhancement to track & trace requirements comes in the form of Newman’s unique Faulty Label Removal (FLR) System with its automatic controlling of reject labels, which will also be demonstrated at Interpack. In operation, should the FLR system not receive “good signals” from the scanning / security devices in use (including bar code reader, missing overprint detector, OCV camera and 2D matrix code reader), the faulty label is securely removed from the label web prior to application onto the container. These faulty labels are then transferred to a paper roll for batch reconciliation and inspection.
All Newman Labelling Systems have many optional extras to suit budget and specification, details of which are available at the show.
Interpack 2017 marks the first major show for Newman’s newly appointed managing director Shaun Baker who said: “Since starting at Newman in March I have been immersing myself in the business. Interpack will be my first chance to meet a wide range of Newman’s customers and partners from around the globe, so is an excellent relationship building tool as well as a key sales opportunity.”
Dusseldorf, Germany, 4-10 May, Hall 15 / A10.
