End of Lane
To maintain traceability and inventory control of finished products, the products must be labelled with a unique ID. Ovotrack End-of-lane consists of an Ovotrack panel PC, button boxes and label printers where needed.
There are several ways to set up Ovotrack End-of-lane software. Products can be selected manually but it's also possible to send sales or production orders to the software automatically or by scanning these orders from a list. By setting up the correct product, sales or production order for a packing lane, the lay-out of a label is also set, as well as other data to be printed on the label.
Whenever a bag-in-box or pallecon is ready, the operator will push the button for that packing lane and a label is printed with the correct layout and a unique ID, both in text and in barcode. Sometimes the ‘product ready’ signal can also come from a sensor or from communication with the filling machine.
The unique ID as well as the origin of the eggs in this product are now stored in the Ovotrack database.
Labelling can also be done automatically, with help of the Print & Apply module.
