Code readers manage product control by tracking the series and manufacturer data.

Identification is carried out by 1D and 2D codes. They offers quick reading performance with an efficient and fast code analysis.

Through compact design with integrated optics and lighting, code reader provides flexible opportunities to be attached on various packaging solutions. Identifying process can be done in motion as well as static

Camera control


The camera controls increase your product quality.

Poor or damaged products are identified and diverted via camera controls. The packaging quality is continuously being checked, hence minimizing bad and cost intense returns.

Track & Trace


The Track & Trace system ensures a secure traceability of the production process. Through the constant capture process during production, the track of the products can be traced from pharmacy down to the production site.

Within the packaging process the packaging units are identified with product relevant data via 1D or 2D codes which are stored in a central database system. Depending on customer or size-specific needs, the imprinted data of the individual packages can be adjusted to the GS1 standard.

Through this ADDons+, which can be retrofitted to any of our packaging solutions, the demands of forgery and product safety within the pharmaceutical industry are guaranteed.

Folding units


Folding units has various folding sizes for leaflets and inserts to offer a high product flexibility.

Existing customer folding units have been modernized and technically updated and can be intergraded in cartoning machines. The high folding accuracy and simple operation enables a clean package process. Through the combination of parallel and cross fold we provide the right solution for your product needs.

We not only offer the integration of new folders, but also used and refurbished folding units.



To support successful quality assurance we offer a retrofittable ADDons+ to combine our packaging solutions with checkweighers of several manufacturers.

Through the high weighing accuracy of the implemented check weighers, the manufactured products achieve a higher warranted quality standard and better compliance to quality guidelines and legal provisions.



Another retrofittable ADDons+ is the fast and accurate positioning of products and packaging units. Through a multitude of modular possibilities we offer the suitable positioner for your solution. Size-set positioners take care of a continuous packaging prove.

For additional packaging of the cartons, we supply tailor made positioner- and grouping solutions for an optimum transfer to the following process.

An extract of possible positioners cover bottle transfer via screw-conveyors, collators, star inserts, tube transfer with feeding conveyors and many other options to optimize your packaging process permanently.
