  2. 2. Create a seamless work environment by connecting employees with accurate information, and empower them to do their best. Whether on the production line, in the warehouse or at the dock, better data means fewer errors and lower costs. Handheld Computers and Tablet PC’s Today’s pharmaceutical manufacturing environment demands the convenience of a conventional computer in a portable, handheld device. Access to data while on the move ensures information is accessible in real-time while increasing mobility and productivity beyond the office to the production floor. VisionID supply and support a range of mobile devices from the worlds leading manufacturers of these product ranges including Motorola, Symbol, Intermec, Honeywell and Xplore. Intrinsically Safe/ATEX approved equipment Intrinsic Safety (IS) and ATEX approved is a concept developed for operation of electronic equipment in hazardous environments. For some pharmaceutical manufacturers the need for handheld devices to comply with dust zone 21 or 22 atmospheres, as well as gas zone 1 environments, is paramount. The diverse range of intrinsically safe and ATEX approved equipment available from VisionID means that we can cater for your specialised needs for hazardous area electronic equipment for both maintenance and production purposes.

  3. 3. RFID for Pharmaceutical Applications RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) solutions for pharmaceutical applications provide a number of benefits including strong counterfeit protection and a complete track and trace solution. By augmenting existing bar code technology with RFID the pharmaceutical manufacturer can create an electronic “pedigree” for every product. An electronic pedigree contains a full account of how a specific product (such as bottle of pills) moves through the supply chain to the customer, identifying unique information such as serial number, lot number and expiration date. The benefits of RFID technology to the pharmaceutical sector includes increased brand protection through anti-counterfeiting technology, improved operational efficiencies and improved data accuracy and integrity. Direct Part Marking Solutions Tracking individual components or simply tagging valuable assets can be a costly proposition when standard product labelling techniques fail to measure up over time. Direct Part Marking (DPM) provides a permanent marking solution that ensures readability throughout the life of your asset or products, even when subjected to harsh environments. The most common methods of marking are Laser-etching, Dot peening, Ink-jet and Chemical-etching and the method of etching is dependant on the material to be marked, the required lifespan, accessibility of area to be marked etc. VisionID technicians can advise on best permanent marking solution for your product Service and Support VisionID not only guarantee great products but can support each through service contracts that will provide added benefit through preventative maintenance and breakdown cover. Our dedicated Service and Support Department can offer consultancy on configuration and set up as well as a range of on-site and return to base services. CASE STUDY “Our dealings with VisionID have been very positive. The job they completed for us exactly met our requirements. I would have no problem in recommending them”. The Requirement As with any world-class pharmaceutical manufacturing facility the requirement for state of the art scanning and printing equipment would prove paramount. Secondary to this requirement was a reliable in-country supplier who could advise on the best equipment to allow smooth integration of production, warehouse and back office processes. As well as a focus on actual production facility within the Cork plant there was also a requirement to automate the warehouse facility to accurately monitor and reconcile throughput of in-bound ingredients and out-bound finished products. Centocor is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson and The Solution manufactures active ingredients for medical products at A combination of MC9090 handheld devices and LS3408 scanners from Symbol their Cork site in Ringaskiddy.

  4. 4. THE WAREHOUSE Mobile devices are an essential tool for today’s modern warehouse and combine a mixture of handheld computers and wearable technology. The pharmaceutical warehouse is a busy place with large volumes of data being processed and an emphasis on speed, control and accuracy. The key to a healthy supply chain is real-time, total visibility solutions that effectively manage all of the integrated operations that are required on a daily basis. Inbound goods must be processed quickly, with pertinent data being recorded and then sent to the warehouse management system. Outbound finished goods must be loaded and shipped according to the shipping order, and pallet data is again captured and transmitted to the warehouse management system. The pharmaceutical warehouse managers and employees can keep track of every item as they arrive, where items are located and when items depart using a warehouse management A Wireless LAN network will transmit data in real-time to track system that incorporates inventory and warehouse processes. When a barcode is scanned, mobile computers, bar its information is transmitted wirelessly to access points mounted code scanning, bar code on the ceiling throughout the warehouse.
