Numina Group, automation experts with over 25 years of expertise, recognised a need for a faster and more flexible mail order pharmacy automated bottle packing system. RxPack is a non-proprietary automated pack and ship solution that simultaneously processes mixed single and multi-bottle orders. Each order is validated to FDA standards. Numina Group's RDS control system time stamps and archives each prescription bottle barcode, literature barcode, and shipping bag label to its internal Oracle® MySQL database.
RxPack is said to eliminate manual packing and document insertion for both single and multi-bottle pharmacy orders, eliminating errors, and resulting in faster, more accurate and lower cost order fulfilment. It utilises the latest generation, high speed pick and place SCARA Robot to process over 700 orders per hour, outperforming 5 or more manual pack stations. The space saving system fits into 100 square feet.
The robotic pack process includes redundant print, fold, and literature insertion with camera based barcode and image archival prescription validation of the entire pack and ship process. Numina Group's control system, RDS validates each prescription bottle barcode, literature barcode, and shipping bag label, and seamlessly interfaces to new or existing pharmacy automation systems.
Numina Group's warehouse control system, RDS, is a scalable, real-time software platform that executes an entire suite of order fulfilment automation control modules. RDS controls and unifies picking, packing, and validation operations in both new and existing pharmacy automation applications. Communication toolsets integrate plant floor automation to existing ERP and Order Management Systems.
