Higher quality requirements in the medical technology and pharmaceutical industry, combined with faster production lines, also place increased demands on the automatic inspection of the containers used. It is important to reliably detect both critical and cosmetic defects in the production cycle and to exclude non-compliant products from further use in the process.
The Octum System Solution for Container Inspection automatically detects the following defects:
- broken container
- scratched container
- dark spots on container
- light spots on container
- damaged side clip
- damaged & scratched tab
- dark & light spots on the tab
- contour and geometry inspection
- correct fit of the tab
- position and length of the tab
- inspection of glass, plastic or metal containers
Automatic inspection is done usually with smart cameras at cycles rates up to 40,000 items/h. Individual inspections can be parameterized customer-specific and therefore can be adapted easily to any product range changes. Inspection severities can also be set customer- and product-specific. Implementation of the complete system solution can be compliant with GAMP 5. The process interface with specific process-related error messages enables immediate process feedback and ensures that quality of the supplied products is consistent. The OCTUMISEr system software is used for visualization and configuration. OCTUMISEr is available on a stand-alone computer and also, of course, as a 21 CFR Part 11.
