If you’re reading this then you are no doubt familiar with the concept of serialization. To put it simply, the process includes printing, inspecting and rejecting. A unique identifier, often a number, is printed on the carton. The printed information is then inspected and if not compliant, rejected.
As serialization requirements increase, many companies are left scrambling for a solution. Especially companies with existing packaging equipment, such as a cartoner. There are a few options. One would be to purchase a new cartoner with serialization capabilities. The other is adding the MGS Machine CIM (Carton Inspection Module) to an existing cartoner. The CIM is a small, one meter unit that prints, inspects and rejects all in one. The CIM can be installed downstream from any OEM cartoner easily. This self-contained, discretely validatable unit can accommodate up to 350 cartons per minute.
