Relatively cheap and logistically effective, bottles have steadily become the standard for drug delivery. Bottles come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and the economics of bottles make them attractive for delivering a month or three months’ worth of medication cost-effectively. Companies tasked with packaging opt for high speed – high volume bottling lines that are predicated on efficiency. That efficiency is what makes the prospect of integrating product serialization such a daunting task for most drug companies.
With speeds reaching multiple hundreds of bottles per minute, a typical bottling line is the integration of many parts, each providing vital services to the overall delivery and each a lynchpin for the overall line efficiency. Bottles may be packed in trays, cartons, or bundled into groups by a shrink-wrapping prior to placement into shippers prior to palletisation. Adding supplemental stations for bottling serialization creates reasonable concerns for companies trying to achieve every percentage point of OEE.
