Welwyn Garden City, United Kingdom, October 06, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- With the growing demand for datamatrix barcoding on cartons, Rotech have developed a system, specifically targeted at the pharmaceutical industry that allows for a carton to be fed, printed, scanned and, if necessary, rejected, all within much the same footprint of their standard RF1 stack to stack feeder range.
The intelligent control system tracks a number of cartons at a time as they travel along the conveyor with a number of trigger points at which the controller communicates with the appropriate device be that the printer, the camera, the reject device or the reject confirmation sensor.
As customers often have a preference when it comes to the choice of printer and camera system, Rotech have made connection of these devices very straightforward and can advise on the best way to optimise the performance of the machine.
Although a Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) Printer is the more usual type of printer as it is unaffected by changes in thickness of the carton, the systems can be fitted with a continuous Thermal Transfer (TTO) printer if so desired. Throughput can be up to 200 cartons per minute depending on camera response time.
