The 1st new data-matrix code-compatible sorter. The latest innovation by the manufacturer APOTEKA and the OMEGA robot is yet again a revolution!


With the appearance of the new data-matrix codes and the traceability law, we wished to offer all pharmacies, whether automated or not, a solution for saving time when scanning and validating references entering the pharmacy.


AUTOMATIC SORTING AND VALIDATION OF REFERENCES TO STORE


Simply empty wholesaler boxes or your purchases directly into ALPHA or onto a buffer stock conveyor (ALPHA Plus option),
ALPHA scans the boxes one by one,then sorts them, thus validating the order.


USE - STANDALONE : Tip it in and it’s sorted !


When coupled to your computer system (and hence to product geographic codes), the ALPHA sorter can distribute your order into trays according to their location in your pharmacy (doublesided shelving, cabinets, advice, para, etc. and, of course, the APOTEKA PLC if you have one), thus speeding up storage considerably.


COUPLED with OMEGA : tip it in and it’s sorted !


The ALPHA sorter can also be integrated into the lower part of the OMEGA robot’s loading hatch (see specific documentation), thus allowing fully automated storage of your order.


Thanks to its automatic positioning technology, the ALPHA sorter, in addition to separating and identifying boxes, can present them to the OMEGA robot in the correct orientation. This latter can accept up to 9 boxes at one, thanks to its multipicking technology, placing them in its storage cabinets, or in the channels of the APOTEKA PLC (that may also be coupled) that may be integrated into the OMEGA storage cabinet (see specific documentation)


ALPHA is an economical solution for simplifying your back-office tasks. It checks your order and sorts your product for quicker storage.


WHY IS ALPHA A REVOLUTION?


INNOVATION: The first automated solution compatible with the new data-matrix codes that are scheduled to become effective as of January 1st 2011, requiring you to scan all boxes individually on receipt of your order.
SPEED: The fastest technology on the market, the aim is to not waste the time saved from not scanning all boxes. The ALPHA’s speed (8 seconds/box) saves time under all circumstances. Your order is thus more rapidly available for sale.
EXPERIENCE: Since 1999, MEKAPHARM, designer, manufacturer and fitter of technological solutions for pharmacies is the undisputed automation leader with its APOTEKA solutions, the PLC for maximum productivity.


OMEGA, the robot for storage, delivery of small turnovers, inventory and automatic restocking is attracting an increasing number of pharmacists thanks to its reliability and speed associated with the multipicking technology (up to 9 different boxes in a single robot movement).


All that was needed was an efficient and profitable sorter to complete the range and to make your work as simple as possible. And for those of you who have decided to equip yourselves with the ALPHA sorter / OMEGA robot and/or the APOTEKA programmable logic controller, you will discover the drugs at the same time as your customer, i.e. at the counter.
