Complete Vial Inspections from a Single Source

Patient safety is priority one in pharmaceutical industry. Even the smallest defects in filling and sealing of pharmaceutical vials can have a big impact on the quality of the product, and in turn, on the health of the patient.

When filling vials, many different aspects need to be inspected to ensure perfect quality – from the container itself to the position of the stopper through to the crimp on the cap. Companies often inspect vials using different machine vision systems, each of which inspects individual aspects. Automatic optical inspection systems from VITRONIC provide the most consistent and reliable quality control.

More Safety. Better Health.

The VINSPEC HEALTHCARE machine vision system hand simultaneously conducts multiple inspections and auto ID/read tasks, offering a complete solution from a single source. Wether inline or atline as an automatic optical inspection machine, our systems ensure 100% quality control of parenteral products - for maximum patient safety.
