Quality assurance within the production flow: a matter of course.
Our customer KWK went one step further and automated the final inspection of the loaded pallets.
Quality assurance is particularly important in the pharmaceutical industry, and our customer, Kunststoffwerke Kremsmünster GmbH (KWK), is well aware of this. As a specialist in the manufacture of capping and dosing systems for the pharmaceutical industry, KWK not only pays attention to perfect quality within the production flow. Also the final inspection of the loaded pallets should be automated in the future.
Even the best product is useless if it does not end up in the place where it is needed. Up to now, the pallets were controlled according to the four-eyes principle. Complaints, returns and delivery delays were the consequences. In a worst case scenario, the end customer may face difficulties within the production process.
The most efficient solution was to use scanners to identify the cartons directly on the pallet. Thanks to the barcode, the cartons can be assigned to a unique order number. This ensures that there are only cartons on the pallet that actually belong to the respective order.
Thanks to this solution, we did not have to disturb the ongoing production process. The pallet scanning system operates completely independently.Let’s talk!
In the first step, the pallet is loaded by the employees. Afterwards, the packages are scanned manually using a hand-held scanner. In addition, the target number of cartons is registered via the touch monitor.
After that, the loaded pallet is rotated 360° by the wrapping machine. In this step, all barcodes are scanned automatically. The data is transferred to an operating panel with touch monitor and compared with the input values. If a green light appears on the signal lamp, the pallet is loaded correctly.
In the last step, the pallet is wrapped and marked with an appropriate label.Let’s talk!
