TQS – the perfect modular Track & Trace solution for global serialisation requirements

Track & Trace is an individual identifying feature in the pharmaceutical sector and the key to guaranteeing the authenticity of medicines. The identification and complete traceability of originator medicines in the entire value chain combined with the tamper-proof sealing of folding boxes form the basis for unconditional trust on the part of consumers.

As a response to the various national requirements, with the Traceable Quality System (TQS) we developed a highly flexible Track & Trace platform that offers our pharmaceutical customers a reliable, future-proof solution.

The modular machine portfolio is aimed at the main applications of serialisation & weighing, Tamper-Evident and consistent aggregation of all relevant forms of packaging. In addition, we successfully integrate state-of-the-art OEM integration solutions into packaging machines. Perfect line integration is also supported by open, standardised interfaces and as a consequence unrestricted compatibility with existing machine and system components is achieved.

Outstanding features of TQS

ConfigureFast: for very easy, fast operation

Intuitive and ideal to operate, thanks to ConfigureFast, TQS provides the greatest possible flexibility with very easy usage. With ConfigureFast the transport system, coding unit, camera, checkweigher and labeller are controlled from a single software package. For the operator this means convenient set-up and short changeover times on product change during which the usual lengthy changes in several different user interfaces are no longer required. This consistency covers all levels of aggregation.

A central element of Track & Trace is the traceability of the products based on the serial number. A unique feature of TQS is the acquisition of additional product data beyond the relevant serialisation parameters. These include, e.g., the weight and the code quality, which are saved together with the serial number. This additional data can be used in a number of different ways to assess product quality and derive adequate measures.

TQS Line Manager - open interfaces for avoiding Lock-ins

Irrespective of your current IT structure: you must reliably integrate into your structure the Track & Trace data required and generated. TQS relies on the usage of an open XML standard interface to avoid a proprietary island solution.

Verification and In-Line Grading


All TQS serialisation machines (TQS-SP and TQS-HC-A) are designed with a function that checks the print quality of the printed codes in line. This control (grading) takes place continuously during throughput of the packages and is based on ISO/IEC 15415 (for 2D Codes) and 15416 (for 1D Codes).

This evaluation is a good indicator of the print quality and is useful as a trend indicator. In-line grading does not replace the full-scale, standardised verification of the printing results.



Secure Remote Service for Minimum Downtime

Once the lines are equipped for serialization of pharmaceutical products, the next step is to ensure seamless production flow. At WIPOTEC-OCS, we recognize that efficient support service is crucial for the success of your pharma serialization project. Consequently, we offer our clients a remote service solution that enables immediate real-time support and quick troubleshooting to ensure your production lines run smoothly.

Intelligent systems for more drug safety

Tamper-Evident seals

A key component in meeting European regulations regarding drug safety, is the application of a Tamper-Evident seal on every individual package. The Tamper-Evident seal can be implemented in various ways. The serialisation modules TQS-SP and TQS-HC-A use our very compact Tamper-Evident labeler to apply the safety seals. Our unique top belt system gives the necessary support to the packages.

In-Line Thermo Transfer Printing of Labels

It is necessary in some applications to provide the individual packages with an additional, country-specific label or vignette. This step is also performed in the TQS-SP and TQS-HC-A machines by means of space-saving labeling units. There is an option of using thermal transfer printing facilitates, for example, the flexible printing of batch data.
