Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. is excited to contribute to the growth of PACK EXPO and Pharma EXPO, showcasing new and innovative automation solutions for the packaging, processing and pharmaceutical industries.
Toronto, ON, October 18, 2016 – In a 300 sq. ft. booth in the South Hall of McCormick Place, Chicago, Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. will be exhibiting at PACK EXPO 16 with the FlexJet DOD (Drop on Demand) Personalization System, Flat Carton Serialization Solutions, two SF 12 Frictions Feeders, a HSF 12 Friction Feeder and a HSF 24 Friction Feeder. In Booth S-1432, Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. is excited to be demonstrating their innovative automation solutions for packaging, processing, friction feeding and pharma serialization.
“As a member of PMMI, Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. is excited to be exhibiting in the South Hall at PACK EXPO International/Pharma EXPO,” states David McCharles, President of Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. “At PACK EXPO, we will be showcasing new and innovative automation solutions for the packaging, processing, and pharmaceutical industries,” continues Mr. McCharles. “With over 50,000 attendees expected, Pineberry Manufacturing is locked and loaded,” concludes Mr. McCharles.
The FlexJet DOD Personalization System barcodes, codes, labels, prints and personalizes plastic cards, lottery tickets, envelopes, letters, magazine subscriptions, and much more. The FlexJet DOD on display is comprised of a Pineberry HSF 12 Friction Feeder, labeler applying scratch-off labels on plastic cards, Atlantic Zeiser inkjet printer, UV lamp, and a Lake Image camera verification system. We will feed, print and apply scratch offs to plastic cards at a speed of 40 meters per minute. The FlexJet DOD is a proven high quality solution for personalizing plastic cards, lottery tickets and other flat media. Pineberry offers DOD UV/LED, CIJ (Continuous Inkjet) and HP heads with custom inks or toners that adhere to the product material being fed. This inkjet solution is project specific, customized to the needs of the customer. The FlexJet DOD prints up to 400 DPI resolution in X and Y direction using DOD. The resolution is flexible and can be altered according to job requirements.
Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. has introduced a serialization system (CartonTrac FC) that produces the cleanest codes on the market, verified with an in-line reader and cannot be tampered with. The pharmaceutical cartons are controlled with precision under the laser providing codes that are superior to inkjet, with zero printing consumables or downtime. The serialization and track & trace solution aims to help fight the immense market of counterfeit products and to enhance consumer safety in accordance with legislations, such as the Drug Quality & Security Act (DQSA) and the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). Serialization requires a comprehensive system to track & trace the passage of prescription drugs and pharmaceutical products through the entire supply chain. Serialization is able to identify every product's serial number, origin, shelf life and batch number; tracing the products life cycle from production, through distribution, to patient. With a reliable 1D or 2D barcode reader, pharmaceutical products can be verified to ensure 100% accuracy. Pineberry manufactured its pharmaceutical serialization machinery system so it is modular and can act as a leaflet verification system as well, saving customer’s from purchasing two separate machines.
Manufactured with robustness and versatility, the SF Friction Feeder is available in widths up to 20 inches (508 mm) and serves product assembly lines, bindery equipment, automated packaging systems, collation systems, printing machinery, and material handling lines. Pineberry SF Friction Feeders can be installed in-line or operated as a stand-alone friction feeder and can feed many products, such as: leaflets – insertion, dispensing; cards; magnets; CD’s & DVD’s; pamphlets; flyers; pharmaceutical inserts; die-cut specialty pieces; virtually any flat media. Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.’s SF Friction Feeder is reliable and easy to operate with high speeds. The SF is servo motor driven with stainless-steel shafting, and FDA design features. The SF can also come equipped with many features, including ink jet printing, barcode scanning, batch count/exit trays, u-board and paper folding, speed matching and food grade stainless steel.
Reduce packaging machine downtime through open source controls. Built with 100% non-proprietary electronic components, Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.’s Open Source HSF Friction Feeder demonstrates an unbeatable level of operational simplicity, reliability, robustness and cost efficiency. Available in widths up to 28 inches (711 mm), The HSF Friction Feeder can be easily integrated into manual and automated lines, and comes with a user-friendly Schneider PLC touch screen controller, reducing the overall number of components to the machine. There are fewer connections and wires going from the combination of the HMI PLC and the power supply servo control power supply that was previously in a large 24x24 grey box is now incorporated in the integrated servile device, making our friction feeders portable. It’s a smarter machine but overall it’s a simple machine to use. Users can get information from the terminal through an app on a smartphone. The Pineberry HSF Friction Feeder with Schneider Electric touchscreen controls provide the end user/operator with ease-of-use and full availability of real-time machine performance data. The feeder is built to deliver optimal speed and accuracy. Open source technology is the way the future is being built.
