Wipotec-OCS TQS-MD Quality Control Machines Have Modular Design

Can be designed in a variety of configurations

Wipotec Tqs Md Weigh+label+metal Detection

Wipotec-OCS 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 a broad array of products. 

The modular concept inherent to TQS-MD machines makes them very adaptable. Depending on a product’s size, shape, weight, and desired throughput speed, Wipotec-OCS can combine the relevant modules for a solution tailored to meet specific needs.

Regardless the number of functionalities a TQS-MD model entails—including weighing, marking and verifying, labeling, 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 shortest possible delivery times. 

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 basic setup marks, verifies, and weighs products on a footprint of 1 meter 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 and trace module is also usually engaged in these instances.

All TQS-MD models employ a weighing station featuring the company’s high-tech Electro-Magnetic Force Restoration (EMFR) weigh cells, a differentiating engineering design that guarantees precise weighing results.
