Product category: Optical inspection systems

Automated Visual Inspection

The vision machine combines solid and proven mechanical engineering according to GMP standards with the latest digital inspection technology.

Container transportation system
The vial transportation system was designed to gently transport the test samples through the inspection stations with the goal of reducing bubble creation and vibrations that might impact the inspection result.

Cosmetic and particle inspection
The cosmetic inspection stations provide container rotation of 360° checking for cracks, scratches and other defects on the container and closure.
Particulates are inspected using image subtraction and corresponding algorithms.

Customized configuration of camera stations
High-resolution image sequences are recorded by several camera stations. Spinning profiles may be adjusted for different particle characteristics such as floating, or heavy particles. Additional camera stations allow for inspection of geometric measurements and detection of discoloration.
 
Specifications and highlights
  • Output up to 600/min
  • For lyo and liquid filled vials
  • Inspection of cosmetic defects and particles

Automated Headspace Analysis (HSA)

The R HSA is an inspection platform developed for non-destructive Head Space Analysis for pharmaceutical packages with modified headspace conditions. Head Space Analysis may be used for nitrogen purging efficiency, vacuum verification or container closure integrity testing (CCIT).

Due to the continuous developments of the laser head space system the R HSA qualifies for the highest requirements and provides the option to add further inspection technologies. Depending on the given conditions, up to ten test heads can be integrated. By increasing the number of test heads both the throughput and the sensitiviy are improved.

NEO DPX 3in1 CCI leak tester for manual inspection

The NEO DPX is a compact benchtop CCI tester that combines several pressure and vacuum decay test procedures and allows the container closure integrity testing of various packaging and product types.
The NEO DPX was developed for container closure integrity testing of various packaging and product types and sizes. With three differential pressure and vacuum methods in one system the NEO DPX provides improved sensitivity with the latest technology.

The NEO series is equipped with the intuitive user interface “MAVIS” that increases user friendliness and creates process safety at the same time. An LED status bar supports the operator by indicating inspection results. The graphic user interface is setup by widgets so operators can personalize their control center. The operator guidance system leads the operator through processes ensuring process robustness and reducing operator failures.

The NEO DPX is equipped with a PLC system allowing the data integration to higher levels such as MES and SCADA systems. Finally, the NEO was complemented with a futuristic product design bringing an eye-catcher into laboratories.

Specifications and highlights
  • Testing of vials, syringes, cartridges, ampoules and other specimen
  • LFC method® integrated
  • Vacuum and pressure decay test method
  • Deterministic test method preferred acc. USP1207

Headspace Analyzer (HSA-Lab)

The WILCOMAT® HSA-Lab is a system for non-destructive measurement of gas concentrations such as oxygen and carbon dioxide in headspace using laser absorption spectroscopy. It can test vials, syringes and ampoules or other packaging from a 1ml syringe to a 1000ml infusion bag for sterile pharmaceuticals.

The HSA Lab Series is equipped with our 3rd generation of TDLAS (tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy) providing industry leading sensitivity for the non-destructive Headspace Analysis of pharmaceutical packaging. The system can be configured to test either partial pressures of oxygen, carbon dioxide or water vapor.

Product category: X-ray inspection systems / devices

X-ray inspection

Our X-ray inspection allows a large number of applications for the highest of demands. Concealed particles, defects on or in the glass or under package components, for example the crimp, are reliably detected. We offer X-ray inspection solutions for the laboratory as well as for high-speed inline inspection for up to 600 products/minute. X-ray inspection can also be combined sucessfully with our other inspection technologies.

The two most important Critical Process Quality Attributes in the glass container handling process are the maintaining of sterility and the indemnification of foreign particle absence within a closed container. We have developed a foreign particle detection system based on X-ray. A low energy X-ray source, together with a highly sophisticated image recognition and processing technology, allows the detecting of non-visible particles in lyo cakes, powders, emulsions and in suspensions. It is usable for vials, ampoules and syringes of different sizes. The X-ray based system also detects glass defects under a vial crimp cap and functional defects such as poor needle alignment of syringes.
