Adents Uses Omega Design Program for Coding & Inspection System
Adents (adents.com) is utilizing Omega Design’s (omegadesign.com) Remote Integration Program to offer the Intelli-Code Carton Coding & Inspection System for the printing of unit-level data on individual cartons via thermal ink jet or laser printing.
Omega Design Corporation is a global provider of innovative packaging machinery and serialization solutions. Its remote integration program is a software-agnostic platform allowing its machines to be preconfigured for easy installation and deployment on an expedited basis to any and all end-users. The Intelli-Code employs an integrated vision system to verify printed data and serialization data management system connectivity. The machine can be easily incorporated into new or existing carton lines, or deployed as part of an independent serialization cell.
Units offered through Adents will be operated by Adents Seriza, a fully configurable, standardized serialization software solution. A unique centralized configuration tool at the site level, Adents Seriza offers flexibility and scalability for pharmaceutical manufacturers and packagers. Speed to deployment and ease of integration are key factors for a successful Level 2-3 serialization solution.
The high-speed and versatile Intelli-Code supports a variety of customer choices regarding preferred printing technologies, camera and inspection vision systems. The module has been standardized to include most common specifications of top 10 pharmaceutical companies, such as multiple user security levels and NFPA 70e split voltage enclosures. The use of fail-safe programming logic ensures only cartons that pass inspection continue down the packaging line.
Intelli-Code features two HMI touch screens: One monitor is dedicated to the serialization system, while the other screen manages machine automation controls. Carton spacing is assured via two variable speed conveyors. Its reject system directs all out-of-spec products to a reject bin, allowing only verified units to pass.
“The combined expertise of our companies—Omega’s material handling and controls integration expertise plus Adents’ exemplary software-based solutions—creates an unsurpassed system for unit-level carton serialization,” said Christophe Devins, CEO of Adents.
