METTLER TOLEDO PCE launches DMS XMV Marking and Vision System.

The METTLER TOLEDO PCE (Pharmacontrol Electronic GmbH) Datamatrix Station DMS XMV Marking and Verification system is a serialization solution that adds Track & Trace capabilities to existing or new production lines. The DMS XMV is a compact package serialization system requiring 800 mm of floor space. It combines ink-jet printing of codes with immediate machine high-resolution vision verification of the codes, and can be integrated into any production line, according to the company.

The system is flexible and designed to be a standard solution for the majority of production lines that are slotted for global deployment. All components of the system, including ink jet printing or laser marking systems, high-resolution verification cameras, mechanical transfer units and sorting devices, have been designed to work in unison, including extremely high speeds of up to 90 m/min. The mechanical transfer unit of the XMV takes the collapsible box directly from the cartoner and transfers it to the printer in the optimal position for serialization marking. The marking is immediately verified for legibility and correctness using a very sensitive optical camera system.

As an option, the XMV can also detect whether the box has open flaps or is not correctly aligned, in order to protect the printer head and downstream bundle packaging equipment. All cartons where the marking cannot be 100% verified as being "good" are rejected into the lockable catch bin. All "good" boxes are then transferred to the customer's conveyor for further processing.

The XMV is compliant with existing regulations and guidelines for the many different Track & Trace concepts currently in use. The open software interface enables communication with all standard data protocols and network systems, with upgrade procedures for future Track & Trace requirements.
