The Package Integrity Control is the solution designed to inspect pharmaceutical products such as syringes, ampoules, bottles or vials in trays.

 

PIC is fully compatible with the Antares Vision network architecture, and it can be the perfecrt compound of

  • traditional line controls (blister filling control, Universal Packaging Inspector suite)
  • Track and Trace systems and Antares Tracking System for production traceability

 

PIC is a configurable system based on one or more cameras with both low or hi resolution and in B/W or Color, depending on the specific product layout.

 

  

 

IT WORKS WITH ANY KIND OF PRODUCT AND MATERIAL

  • Inspected products:
    • Syringes
    • Ampoules
    • Bottles
    • Vials
  • Inspected materials:
    • Plastic
    • Glass
    • Metal

 
 

IT WORKS WITH ANY SUPPORT TRAY

  • Any material:
    • PVC, PET-G, and PET are the most commonly used thermoformed materials, but the PIC works even with cardboard.
  • Any shape:
    • Single pack trays
    • Combo pack trays

 

PERFORMED CONTROLS

With intermittent or continuous motion machines the security controls performed by the PIC include:

 

  • Presence and integrity:
    • Package filling
    • Syringe needle and stopper
    • Cap and flip-off closure
    • Glass and plastic integrity
  • Shape check:
    • Product shape check
    • Geometry (area, contour, major/minor axis)
  • Colour check:
    • Product colour
    • Rings on ampoules
    • Single inner part colour, as syringe piston and stopper

 

 

SMART AND EFFICIENT FEATURES

  • PIC inspects up to 12 trays, each one containing up to 40 different check areas, thanks to the high resolution colour camera (up to 1600x1200 pixels).
  • Simple and fast self-learning procedure: the software guides the operator along the phases of format creation.
  • Easy and user-friendly graphic user interface based on stand alone 15” touch screen display or directly integrated in the machine control.
  • An automatic self-tuning procedure optimizes illuminator set up, product colour selection and tray position detection.
  • Advanced statistical analyses with detailed reject typology identification, to help detecting the reject causes in the upstream production process.
  • The highest reliability is assured by image processing performed with real time-embedded technology and by the total absence of critical components such as hard disks.
