The STS-B was developed for the simple aggregation of pharmaceutical packs into a bundle. For this purpose, the barcodes of serialized products are captured from below by the vision system through a scratch-resistant glass plate. The distance between camera and barcode therefore always remains the same. The maximum working surface is 420 mm (W) x 300 mm (D).

The detected serial numbers are marked in green so that they are easy for the operators to understand. Depending on the configuration, the system can compare the recorded serial numbers with the default values of the L3 installation. Particular attention was paid to user guidance (workflow) in order to achieve maximum process reliability. In order to completely fill the carton layer(s) or spaces, barcodes that cannot be placed with the barcode facing upwards due to their orientation can be manually added in each layer by the integrated handheld scanner to complete the respective layer or carton.
