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

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.

IT WORKS WITH ANY KIND OF TABLETS AND CAPSULES
  • The system can process tablets, capsules, hard and soft gelatines.
  • It performs controls on mono and multi color products.
  • Presence of text on capsules or tablets do not affect the control.

 
PERFORMED CONTROLS
  • mixed-up products
  • colours correctness
  • shape
  • geometry (area, contour, major/minor axis)
  • cracks and breaks
  • chipping
 
 
SMART AND EFFICIENT FEATURES
  • Up to 12 vibrating channels can be inspected at the same time.
  • Virtually unlimited number of memorized formats.
  • Easy mechanical and electronic integration on every counting machine.
  • Simple and fast auto-learning procedure: the software guides the operator along the phases of format creation.
  • Automatic self-tuning procedure optimizes illuminator set up.
  • Easy user-friendly graphic user interface based on stad-alone 15” touch screen dispaly or directly integrated in the machine HMI.
  • Automatic threshold tuning: analysing the last found errors, the software automatically adapts the acceptance thresholds, thus minimizing false rejects while keeping utmost control reliability.
  • Advanced statistical analyses with detailed reject typology to help detecting the reject causes in the upstream production process.
  • Easy cleaning procedure: lighting system can be easily removed.
  • The highest reliability is ensured by image processing performed with real time-embedded technology and by the total absence of critical components such as hard disks.
