New to Antares Vision is ATS Four: the most complete Level 4 solution. The ATS Four ecosystem provides the most comprehensive, flexible, fast and cost-saving solution to allow the widest connection capability for any traceability framework. It is based on two modules: ATS Link and ATS Hub. The ATS Link module provides a unique point of interface (multi-site, multi-vendor and multi-enterprise) with Level 3 plants ERP and serialization platforms, enabling interface exchange with government agencies.

It can also operate in connection to other Level 4 providers. ATS Hub is the full Level 4 software solution providing global data repository and serial number generation, implementing serialization data flows with the manufacturing and distribution network.

Antares Vision also proves superior technological capabilities in the sector with their inspection machines: the Tablet and Capsule Inspector (TCI) and Visual Rotating Inspector (VRI). Both machines introduce the concept of automatic inspection of products and containers, even in applications previously managed manually.
