sop for Checking of Proof and Overprinting
To define a procedure for checking of proof of foil, label, enclosure, carton and shipper.
2.1 This procedure applies to proof of foil, label, enclosure, carton and shipper in packing department at QC
Head- Quality Control
After setting the Blister or Strip pack machine, fix the required number of stereos on the drum or in case if overprinting is done using inkjet printer, align the printer head in the space provided on the foil. Depending on numbers of stereos affixed on drum or heads used for overprinting, remove the foil piece with impression and check the impression on foil.
Check the correctness and sharpness of overprinted matter by a Packing Officer and counter checked by a QA Officer with sign with date.
In case if the overprinting is done by using metallic stereos, then fix the stereos as per requirement and check the embossed pack by a Packing Officer and a QA officer.
Verification of the proof is to be done by ticking individual word and comparing it with the details mentioned in BPR. Tick marking by two Officers shall be at the opposite end of each individual word of impression.
Check the Item code on foil by a Packing Officer and a QA Officer against that mentioned on work order.
After checking the proof, the Packing Officer and QA Officer shall certify in the BPR.
Follow the similar procedure for label, carton and shipper. In case of enclosure, encircle the item code (if printings on both sides then check the item code on both sides) and sign it by a Packing officer and a QA Officer.
After verifying the correctness of impression, start the packing of the batch. Sample of verified impressions shall be attached to the BPR.
During batch running, if any stereos are changed due to wearing out of stereos or any change in inkjet printer is done due to problem on machine, then take the new impression, check and sign it by a Packing Officer and a QA Officer. Mention the shipper number from which the change is being done. Follow the same procedure if there is any change in A.R. no. of Packaging material.
