WIPOTEC-OCS to showcase new series of modular quality control machines at Pack Expo
WIPOTEC-OCS, a leading manufacturer and supplier of precision in-motion weighing, track and trace/anti-counterfeiting solutions and X-ray scanning equipment, will showcase a new series of modular quality control machines at Pack Expo booth S-4172, October 23-26 in Chicago. The company’s new Traceable Quality System Modular Design (TQS-MD) uses a “building block” concept yielding compatibility with an exceptionally broad array of products.
The modular concept inherent to TQS-MD machines makes them extraordinarily adaptable. Depending on a product’s size, shape, weight and desired throughput speed, WIPOTEC-OCS can simply combine the relevant modules for a solution tailored to meet specific needs.
A cornerstone of WIPOTEC-OCS’ new series is central control. Regardless the number of functionalities a TQS-MD models entails – a lengthy list that includes weighing, marking and verifying, labelling, metal detection and serialization/aggregation integration, among others – the unit offers one user interface. This makes product changes, article setup and layout modifications less error-prone and more user-friendly. The “one system, many capabilities” approach also has availability benefits amid a challenging supply chain landscape: With 85% of components produced in-house, WIPOTEC-OCS is well positioned to deliver not only exemplary quality standards but the shortest-possible delivery times.
As the name suggests, the TQS-MD series can comprise a wide array of configurations. Typically applied to print “best before” dates, batch codes or lot numbers on boxes, the popular basic setup marks, verifies and weighs products on a footprint of just one metre in length, and can be upgraded to execute full serialization where required.
Another TQS-MD setup, geared toward food applications, can weigh, label and inspect for metallic foreign bodies in a single process step. And by adapting product handling modules to a larger dimension, TQS-MD models also can be arranged to handle big boxes like shipping cartons. Since such cases generally entail unit-level information for serialization, aggregation or shipping, a track & trace module is also usually engaged in these instances.
As with other WIPOTEC weighing solutions, all TQS-MD models employing a weighing station feature the company’s high-tech Electro-Magnetic Force Restoration (EMFR) weigh cells, a differentiating engineering design that guarantees precise weighing results.
