BFC - Blister Filling Control

The solution for total blister inspection

√  IT WOKS WITH ANY KIND OF CAPSULE AND TABLET
√  IT WORKS WITH ANY KIND OF SUPPORT MATERIAL
√  PERRFORMED CONTROLS
√ SMART AND EFFICIENT FEATURES
√  TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS
 
BFC, designed by Antares Vision for the inspection and correct filling of pharmaceutical blisters, is the result of the experience and the ten-year partnership between IMA, world leader in the design and production of blistering machine, and the worldwide pharmaceutical industry.

The system removes the risk of intermingling, vagrants and/or excess products, as it inspects the complete blister surface, including the part outside of the pocket.

The processing power of the unit allows for an extremely accurate control, whose speed is faster than every other blistering machine available on the market: production efficiency is therefore always guaranteed.

BFC can be integrated with all classic controls along the line, TLC on the lidding foil and/or PQC (BarCode Reader and OCV/OCR) on leaflets, cartons and labels, and Box Checking for correct case-packing verification, as well as the Antares Tracking System for the production traceability.

AFC - Antares Foreign Checker

100% MIXING UP PREVENTION AND PRODUCT INTEGRITY VERIFICATION DURING BOTTLES FILLING

√ IT WORKS WITH ANY KIND OF TABLETS AND CAPSULES
√ PERFORMED CONTROLS
√ SMART AND EFFICIENT FEATURES
√ TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS

AFC is the in-line inspection system designed to prevent cross-contamination and detect product defects during the phase of bottles filling with tablets and capsules.
 
Created out of the experience of Antares Vision in the most advanced industrial sectors, AFC was originally developed for the IMA-Swiftpack machines and is now available for retrofitting on all vendors’ counting machines.

The AFC comes with a stand-alone, easy to fit, integrated module containing two high resolution colour cameras and a lighting system optimized to minimize reflections from the inox channels, thus allowing highest efficiency in defect detection.

Input-Output signals allow to command rejects of non- conforming products as well as synchronizing with machine cycles (start/stop/suspend production, etc.).

The AFC is integrated into the Antares Vision architecture and may therefore be integrated with all traditional line controls such as tray inspection, all the Universal Packaging Inspector suite, as well as all the Track and Trace systems.

PSC - Printing Sample Check

100% SAMPLE VERIFICATION

√  AUTOMATIC DETECTION OF PRINTING DEFECTS
√  IMMEDIATE REPORT GENERATION & SHARING
√  IDEAL FOR CARTONS, LEAFLETS, LABELS, FOILS
√  FAST, IMPARTIAL, REPRODUCIBLE

Artwork Tutor supports the management of the packaging artworks in the pharmaceutical industry, from the original design to the mass printing of materials.
Based on a sophisticated software able to import and process the PDF files of the original artworks, Artwork Tutor compares them with the physical printings, automatically detecting and outlining the differences.
Artwork Tutor can work off-line on images simply scanned by a high quality scanner, or can work inline, connecting to 
a high resolution camera and comparing the image just printed, thus commanding rejects of the defective items or alerting 
the operator of the malfunctioning.
Advanced but very simple to use algorithms automatically align the master and the analyzed images, compensating the 
physiological deformation of the support and thus avoiding false alarms.
 
Printing Sample Check is the new system designed by antares Vision to support the management of the printed samples in the packaging industry, from the original design to the mass printing of materials.

Based on a sophisticated software able to import and process the original PDF files, Printing Sample Check compares them with the physical printed samples, automatically detecting and outlining the differences.

Printing Sample Check works off-line acquiring images of the printed samples with a high quality certified scanner station. This ensures the most reliable performances with a fast scanning tool that can give impartial and reproducible results from sample-to-file comparison.

Advanced but very simple to use algorithms automatically align the master and the analysed images, compensating the physiological deformation of the support and thus avoiding false mistakes.
 
 100% INSPECTION ACCURACY
• Shape and color:
- high precision inspection with all fonts: latin, arabic, chinese, korean or japanese.
- missing parts of letters
- missing, mismatched or different fonts
- missing ink
- poor printing
- stains and smudges
- stretches
- scratches
- streaks
- spots
- color difference (ΔE)
 
 
• Barcode inspection:
- identification, inspection and decoding of 1D and 2D codes 
- Datamatrix grade evaluation

 OFF-LINE OPERATION
• Interfaces with a supplied high speed certified scanner
• Wide range of scanner dimensional range (A1, A3, A4)
• File to file comparison
• Easy report printing and sharing of the results
 


HIGH EFFICIENCY AND EASE OF USE
A simple and fast procedure guides the operator along the main phases:acquisition of the image
automatic verification against the master image (PDF and other graphic formats supported)
manual error validation
reporting
Fast, impartial and reproducible results
Simultaneous acquisition and verification on a batch queue
Automatic alignment and comparison of the single master artwork with the multiple artworks printed in one sheet
Virtually unlimited definition of areas with different tolerances (up to 5 levels) to concentrate control on the most critical areas
Automatic cutting die detection
Advanced reporting to help locating the error causes in the printing process (ie. clogging of individual nozzles, stains)
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
• Folding cartons
• Patient information leaflets 
• Labels
• Foils
