Filling and Packaging Inspection
3D measurement systems are often used in the pharmaceutical packaging process ensuring that items are sorted correctly, and that packages are filled properly without any defects. ProPhotonix provides a range of robust lasers ideally suited to this task, guaranteeing repeatable performance.
For quality control, pharmaceutical companies need to inspect every capsule they manufacture. Their system needs to be able to scan different sized capsules, printed text on capsules, and be able to inspect inside the capsules themselves. This is complicated by the fact that capsules are typically made from parts of two different colors and can vary in color from white to black. Therefore, the white lights need to have a dynamic current range to work across such variation in color. A further complication for pharmaceutical companies is that the entire circumference of the capsules needs to be inspected.
Correct labelling of products is of the utmost importance in pharmaceutical manufacturing and these can be inspected using Optical Character Recognition systems. The quality of the illumination products used in these systems will impact on the performance of the overall system. Uniform lighting will deliver the best results. Prophotonix provides a range of lighting with extremely high uniformity providing excellent results. UV products are also available for inspection of invisible inks.
