Vision inspection systems and PAT tools for pharmaceuticals

Product and packaging quality inspection systems

The quality control of the drugs and their packaging is essential to reduce risks of defective products, but also to automatize the production processes.

SEA Vision has been developing industrial machine vision software for the pharmaceutical industry since 1995. Today the vision portfolio has evolved into a complete range of hardware and software solutions, always integrating latest-generation technologies such as infrared spectroscopy, laser absorption and many more.

Vision inspection systems, workstations, and vision kits: a complete range of products featuring proprietary algorithms developed in-house to perform a number of different control functions both on products or their packaging to ensure total quality.

QUALITY INSPECTION

A complete range of controls

SEA Vision systems perform a full set of control inspections on colour, shape, size, components, correct assembly, OCV / OCR on variable data and codes. The systems work with any kind of support material and can inspect tablets, capsules, blisters, sachets, stick packs, vials, bottles, syringes, cartridges, bottle packs, nests, trays, squeezable tubes, medical devices, secondary packaging, and others.

VISION INSPECTION SYSTEMS FOR PHARMACEUTICALS

Total quality, 100% guaranteed

Vision systems for quality control guarantee accurate visual inspections directly on the line. Thanks to specifically written algorithms and programmable measurements, even the most complex checks are carried out in just milliseconds on 100% of the product, and results are displayed in real-time without affecting the production speed.

PAT TECHNOLOGIES

The PAT Technologies

These are non-destructive checks that are used to guarantee the quality of the product and the efficiency of the production line. This technology analyses the products directly on the production line without sampling, thus verifying 100% of the products.

The result? No sampling, shorter production times and no product “withdrawal” risks.

KITS

Software and hardware kits

The so-called “Kits” are a combination of software and hardware ready to be installed on different OEM machines – and preset to perform a specific check; just a few examples: to check the presence of the product and its components, defects in shape, size and colour, presence of foreign bodies, and others.

It is possible to install one or more kits and perform multiple checks simultaneously.
