For consumers to know that a medicine is genuine, products in the pharmaceutical industry need distinctive drug labelling and counterfeit-proof identification features. That’s exactly what Track and Trace ensures. Pharmacists, for example, can clearly identify the products and can track the transportation of every package end-to-end. This, together with a tamper-evident closure, creates security and confidence.
Because the pharma serialisation requirements for differ from country to country, we offer highly flexible Track and Trace systems like the Traceable Quality System (TQS): a reliable and future-proof solution for our pharmaceutical customers.
In addition, we successfully integrate OEM components into packaging machines. The standardised interfaces also support perfect Track and Trace IT integration. As a result they are fully compatible with existing machine and system components.

As a result of EU Directive 2011/62/EU, from February 2019 the pharmaceutical industry must not put any more prescription-only drugs on the market unless it is possible to verify their authenticity by serial numbering and tamper-evident sealing. This is used to improve consumer protection in the case of drugs.
It poses a challenge for companies in the pharmaceutical industry because the production environment, serialisation and aggregation requirements may vary widely at national level. We know what’s important in terms of country-specific Track and Trace pharmaceutical advice and have compiled and analysed all the crucial information for you on an interactive world map.

Folding boxes are serialised by printing the side surfaces or the top. Weight acquisition to check whether they are complete. And we offer the tamper-evident application for this so that the closure is also tamper-proof. Aggregation can be built up in several stages through to pallet level. Rejecting defective packages that fail the weight, application and printing test ensures 100% product monitoring.

Bottles or vials are serialised by sticking on labels. This is followed by full-surface print verification using optical inspection. If labels are not readable, they are identified and rejected before being applied. In addition, a 360° all-round inspection with verification of bottles and vials takes place at the exit of labelling machines. If necessary, a helper code is printed on the base or lid of bottles or vials.
