Building a Track & Trace Program

At METTLER TOLEDO we draw on a wealth of industry experience and develop solutions tailored to suit your needs. For example, R-Pharm Germany GmbH, a contract manufacturing organization (CMO), partnered with us to develop their new pharmaceutical production lines. They were looking for a track and trace solution that would allow for quick product changeovers and easy processes to adjust settings. In order to develop their production layout, we teamed up with OEMs to provide the necessary hardware...

Software Integration

Conducting track and trace operations requires software that communicates effectively with production software. Achieving this is difficult if the track and trace software doesn't support different forms of data transmission and communication. This can lead to significant problems when trying to implement a program. Our PCE Software Suite is built with open architecture in mind with the latest security considerations for encryption of sensitive data. A standard application interface and software...

Software Integration

FAQ's

What is integration for track and trace?

Integrated solutions refer to the software and hardware incorporated into a manufacturer’s facility where packaging equipment already manages the product handling and track and trace components are expected to work in conjunction with these processes. This process of integrating our products into the packaging process involves key steps towards developing a specific solution to address a customer’s needs.

What components are included in an integrated solution?

Each of our integrated product lines comes as standard with a reading device, such as a Smart Camera or High-Resolution Camera, a control cabinet and an HMI. The control cabinet provides the hardware needed to connect to the camera and third-party printers or sorting equipment (as applicable); the camera inspects whatever has been printed, and the HMI serves as the interface for the operator to setup and review the processes in place are performing to specifications. Additionally, you will need to purchase PLM Serialization or PLM Aggregation software depending upon your application.

What is an OEM?

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) refers to any supplier providing packaging equipment to the end customer. In our case, OEMs could potentially be companies that make conveyors, case packers, palletizers, etc. In the setup of an integrated solution, we will work with the customers’ OEMs to tailor our software and hardware to fit any spacing limitations or connectivity concerns. For our hardware, this means we help choose the right smart camera, cables and connectors to fit the installation space available. For our software, this means we work closely with the IT vendors, network administrators or other key stakeholders to ensure the solution is communicating effectively with every application interface.
