Marchesini Group’s BL A309 automatic labeler applies a vignette label on the upper panel of the carton. It’s built with an ergonomic balcony-design that offers full access to ensure cleaning and management comfort. It guarantees a full view of the entire production process. The unit works with a carton accumulation infeed conveyor to allow smooth feeding even at high speed, and an indexed carton transport—by means of a toothed belt—that permits correct carton positioning during code printing.
The BL A309 is designed to allow the installation of tracking devices plus corresponding cameras, to print and subsequently verify 2D codes and relevant human-readable characters, on the lateral flaps and on the upper panel.
The possibility to install all the main tracking devices available on the market—as laser or inkjet printers—makes the BL A309 a complete, easy to use, versatile solution to meet needs related to pharmaceutical traceability.
An OCV System is installed on the BL A309. It manages the printer directly (inkjet or laser) and can self-generate the serialized codes using a timestamp-based algorithm or manage the codes received from the server. The vision system measures the quality of the codes printed online.
