Safe Pharmaceutical Products with Sealing

Case Study

At Krewel Meuselbach GmbH

The medium-sized pharmaceuticals company Krewel Meuselbach GmbH manufactures top-quality, affordable pharmaceuticals at its Eitorf (North Rhine-Westphalia) and Gehren (Thuringia) sites in Germany, using state-of-the art technology. The pharmaceuticals specialist has been putting its trust in METTLER TOLEDO solutions for a number of years now.

Traceability and Prevention of Product Falsification

At the Eitorf site, Krewel Meuselbach uses the compact XS2 MV TE system from METTLER TOLEDO in a thermoforming line to ensure comprehensive quality control and prevent the falsification of its products. It achieves this through data matrix codes and tamper-evident seals.

The XS2 MV TE combines precise weighing, marking, sealing, and verification with global requirements for traceability and the prevention of product falsification – even meeting the market requirements of the future. This is especially important for a pharmaceuticals manufacturer like Krewel Meuselbach, which produces goods in line with EU Directive 2011/62/EU and the GMP standard, and markets its products on an international level.


“The XS2 MV TE system has proven to be a reliable solution that meets our requirements when it comes to safety markings and tamper-evident seals. What’s more, it integrates perfectly into our existing production environments in Eitorf and Gehren,” explains Hilmar Höhne, Head of the Technical Department at Krewel Meuselbach.

4-in-1 System Combines Checkweighing, Serialization, Opticalcode Verification and Tamper-evident Seal applicator in one Reliable Unit

The spacesaving combination system XS2 MV TE offers reliable checkweighing with serialization, optical code verification and a tamper-evident seal applicator. The weighing unit ensures the completeness of the pharmaceutical packaging. If, for example, the contents are missing or a blister is incomplete, the product is automatically removed from the production line by means of an air jet.
