The modular, comprehensive concept for the seamless traceability of pharmaceutical products

Track & Trace by Uhlmann is the solution to comprehensively combat counterfeiting and to ensure product and process reliability. Our flexibly structured portfolio permits quick adaptation to individual customer requirements as well as to future serialization specifications.

Track & Trace by Uhlmann allows the implementation of four options:

  • Codification
  • Label tracking
  • Full serialization
  • Aggregation


  • Legislation
    already in place
  • Tracking laws
    in preparation

Maximum flexibility: Our standalone solutions

The Uhlmann Serialization Platform USP is a compact standalone unit with fully automated format adjustment. The modularly designed platform, incorporating the functions printing, inspection, tamper-evident labeling, checkweighing, and top labeling, easily meets current statutory serialization requirements. It is ideal as a first step into the field of serialization and allows fast response to changing specifications.

The modular design of the unit means that it can be configured to suit each respective project. It can be used flexibly at various packaging machines and lines. Furthermore, significantly fewer revalidation measures are necessary than with an integrated solution.

Maximum flexibility: Our standalone solutions

The modular design of the Uhlmann aggregation platform UAP allows the implementation of aggregation solutions to meet a variety of requirements. The UAP offers flexible options to aggregate different packaging units (e.g., cartons, bottles, etc.) into a number of packaging levels (bundle, shipping case, or pallet). In addition, different units, or even packaging levels, can be decommissioned.

The platform can be used as a standalone unit or as an extension to existing packaging machines and lines. Various rework options can also be implemented as quick solutions to meet relevant needs.

Maximum modularity: Our software for your processes

At the heart of every Track & Trace application is a software solution that allows the acquisition and transfer of data. Data security measures ensure that serial numbers and codes cannot be duplicated or get lost.

The software, developed by Uhlmann internally, offers a flexible and modular system architecture that meets all extensive requirements. It is used to record, aggregate, and manage serialization data not only at machine level, but also at line management and site management level.

Linking to existing system landscapes as well as higher-ranking internal and external systems, such as government data bases, is likewise possible and has already been successfully implemented in numerous projects.

Maximum reliability: Our precision components for your line

Suitable, high-end, and thoroughly tried and tested components are needed to guarantee the required functionalities of a Track & Trace solution. The Uhlmann portfolio includes a broad range of printing technology and label application options, as well as intelligent OCR/OCV image data processing systems, and optimally coordinated printing and marking systems.

These standard components are combined to serve the respective applications and can be integrated into new Uhlmann machines as well as those already in operation. The same applies to lines and packaging machines from other manufacturers.

Maximum customer orientation: Our global support for trouble-free projects

Experience Track & Trace live

You can experience the interaction of an Uhlmann Serialization Platform USP together with the SAP Advanced Track & Trace for Pharmaceuticals (ATTP) system at the new demonstration center in Frankfurt. The USP, incorporating the functions printing and print inspection, is linked to the SAP Advanced Track & Trace for Pharmaceuticals platform via the Uhlmann site server. The SAP ATTP integration enables the USP to request and assign serial numbers, verify the order data, and monitor the use of serial numbers.

The Demo Center in Frankfurt is operated by Uhlmann and Movilitas.

About the OPEN-SCS Working Group

Uhlmann is a member of the OPEN-SCS Working Group (Open Serialization Communication Standard). In this capacity, it is helping to define and implement standardized, open communication interfaces between the various suppliers of tracking and tracing solutions in order to meet global serialization specifications.

OPEN-SCS is a commercial, open- source member subscription, combining the advantages of open source and the group membership. This allows members to efficiently and rapidly develop technology to deliver independent and open solutions. OpenThe OPEN-SCS Working Group was founded with the mission of enabling member organizations to benefit from the open- source ethos of a non-proprietary open standards and specifications built on innovation, independence and an open architecture.
