OCS Checkweighers offers an intuitively
usable system which treats coders as actuators and cameras as sensors. It’s a system
that combines maximum flexibility with easy
operation. Their solution is the Traceable
Quality System (TQS). All components
including the conveyor system, the coder and
the camera are operated and controlled by one single software. Other systems usually need different
user interfaces for individual components. With
this innovative approach this nuisance is a thing of
the past. Traceable quality and checkweighing for single
packs: TQS-HC-A. The TQS-HC-A stands for serialization and checks for completeness in
one single unit. It combines a precise, weight-verification check for completeness and a reliable serialization of folded boxes limited space. A sophisticated, flexible and optimally synchronized top and bottom conveyor picks up the folded boxes from the cartoner up-stream.
The precise robust conveying system is a crucial prerequisite for an accurate coding (Thermal
ink-jet or laser) and the subsequent verification. Incorrectly coded packages are ejected into
a lockable rejection bin before they reach the weighing conveyor. Packages with incorrect
weight, however, are rejected by a separate rejection system after the weighing conveyor.
One single software with a unified user interface allows for a convenient operation of all
components. Therefore, the same user interface can be used to control all components of
the system and no program change is necessary. The status of all items including the weight
is recorded in the connected SQL database. This results in a direct, quick, easy and efficient
2-in-1 end-of-line check.
