Newman Labelling demonstrates FMD compliant systems


The company will show the S350, compatible with the Track and Trace requirements of the Falsified Medicines Directive, at Interpack 2017

Newman Labelling Systems, supplier of specialist pharmaceutical labelling systems, will be displaying its S350 fully automatic versatile labelling system at Interpack 2017 in Dusseldorf, Germany, 4–10th May.

The S350, along with all of Newman Labelling’s systems, is compatible with the Track and Trace requirements of the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) and is available with comprehensive validation support and a wide range of printing and inspection systems.

The S350 has been designed to operate 24/7 at a production rate of up to 300 containers per minute with high levels of efficiency, according to DIN 8743.

It is capable of applying both paper and clear plastic labels to cylindrical containers in glass, plastic, metal and composite materials.

Both label and container size changes can be rapidly achieved without the use of tools and digital scales.

A compact cGMP Design, manufactured in stainless steel 304 finish, the S350 comes with a range of features as standard, such as Auto-teach label length facility and In Process Control.

The latest data-bus technology has been utilised to simplify the integration of security and ancillary devices such as Visions Systems.

This ensures full compatibility with the Track and Trace requirements of the FMD.

A further enhancement to Track and Trace requirements comes in the form of Newman’s unique Faulty Label Removal (FLR) System with its automatic controlling of reject labels.

Should the FLR system not receive good signals from the scanning / security devices in use (including bar code reader, missing overprint detector, OCV camera and 2D matrix code reader), the faulty label is securely removed from the label web prior to application onto the container.

These faulty labels are then transferred to a paper roll for batch reconciliation and inspection.
