Vial Inspections

Complete Vial Inspections from a single Source

When it comes to vials, there is plenty to inspect: from the quality of the container to the position of the stopper through to the crimping of the cap. Many companies inspect vials using multiple machine vision systems, each of which inspects individual aspects.

The VINSPEC HEALTHCARE machine vision system from VITRONIC on the other hand simultaneously conducts multiple inspections and auto ID/read tasks, offering a complete solution from a single source. Inline or atline as an automatic inspection machine. You therefore receive a complete solution from a single source.

The VINSPEC HEALTHCARE-machine vision systems can be used for the following inspections:

  • Container quality inspections
  • Inspections of the stopper for correct positioning
  • Inspections of the crimping quality on the cap
  • Partial crimping depth measurements

Quality inspections are also conducted on the cap, including in terms of the cap color and shape, and the auto ID process (1D/2D codes, OCR, OCV) is conducted on the top of the cap and its jacket area. Depending on requirements, one, several or all individual inspections can be used.

Overview of all inspections:

  • Detection of product mix-ups on the basis of the cap color and shape
  • Quality inspections of the cap and the crimping with regard to

    • deformations, defects and tears to the cap surface
    • Wrinkled crimping
    • Partially or entirely missing crimping
    • Deformed and destroyed crimping

  • Fill level checks
  • Reading and verifying 1D codes, 2D codes, OCR and OCV
  • Stopper inspections: correct positioning and color
