PCE - Pharma Vision Inspection

As the leading expert in Track & Trace solutions, Pharmacontrol Electronic GmbH (PCE) can draw on over 20 years' experience of supplying intelligent optical control systems for maximum process reliability in the pharmaceutical packaging industry.

Ease of use and seamless integration into the packaging process

Reliable, fast code-reading technology coupled with the latest integrated camera controls tailored to the specific requirements of the pharmaceutical packaging industry ensure the smooth execution of quality control procedures in the field of packaging. Central line and data management software modules are also key components in this regard. As a result, ease of use and seamless integration into the packaging process are a matter of course.

Group strength for reliable products and global service from a single source

Since August 2011, PCE has been part of the METTLER TOLEDO Group, a leading supplier of precision instruments with a global sales and service network. This merger led to the creation of one of the world's leading experts in the field of pharmaceutical Track & Trace systems with a combined total of 400 installed lines for French coding and serialization in Europe, the USA, Asia, Australia and South America.


We can now offer you, our users, high-quality, modular and standardized Track & Trace systems along with other key solutions for product inspection in packaging processes (such as checkweighers, metal detectors, X-ray inspection systems and vision inspection systems) from a single source. What's more, you can rely on global customer support services and a sound, long-term partnership.

Multi-level and integrated solutions for product traceability

The market demands reliable traceability from manufacturer to pharmacy. Proposed regulatory legislation will require all manufacturers to implement appropriate security systems to prevent counterfeit medicines. PCE control systems make sure that labelling and serialisation is performed correctly, starting with individual products and continuing through to aggregation into bundles, shipping cases and pallets.

The PCE Pilot software suite supports smooth system control and data exchange with higher-level systems. Thanks to our modular and highly-configurable systems, you can upgrade your processes as required to comply with new legislation and thereby protect existing investments

Your Expert Partner for Optical Quality Inspection

Over the years, PCE has established a successful track record of supplying further solutions and components for optical quality inspection tasks in the pharmaceutical industry and in other sectors (e.g.blister checking, tablet checking and large-area label checking) either as add-on products or in combination with dedicated Track & Trace systems.

The benefits are clear to see. By using the latest systems from METTLER TOLEDO for checking traceability, you can be sure that:
