The AutoFinisher is a feature of Deacom’s ERP software and built specifically for manufacturers of serialized and/or catch-weight products to efficiently weigh, serialize, label, palletize, and report on production. This tool provides the most value to industries like food and pharmaceutical, where requirements for serialization and catch weight production adds complexity to the manufacturing process.
For food manufacturers producing catch weight items, the AutoFinisher automatically confirms that the item adheres to the weight specifications maintained within DEACOM ERP. It then produces the appropriate label for the product with the catch weight, serial number, and a barcode to be later used within DEACOM Warehouse Management System.
For pharmaceutical or nutraceutical manufacturers running production lines well over 100 units per minute, sustaining this rate while meeting product serialization requirements set forth by new regulatory laws such as the U.S. Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), is of great concern. The DEACOM AutoFinisher is able to generate serial number information and print relevant labels at unit, case, and pallet levels without affecting production speed.
