Insulin Pen Inspection

Cost-efficiency and patient safety thanks to a precise inspection

The Solution for a Cost-Efficient, Safe Quality Inspection

The incidence of diabetes worldwide is increasing all the time. Insulin pens allow patients to manage their therapy themselves. During the manufacturing process, full inspection of pen assembly is essential to ensure a high degree of patient safety.

With VITRONIC, you check that each assembly step has been completed correctly. This is done directly after each step, so that you can detect any therapy-relevant defects that will no longer be visible in the final assembled product.

AVI enables efficient avoidance of false rejects

Identify All Defects

When inspecting insulin pens, it is important to detect assembly errors before final assembly and exclude defective component groups from manufacturing as early as possible. Due to the fast cycle rates, automated visual inspection (AVI) is the only option for a 100% inspection.

VITRONIC solutions are also designed so that, even with multi-line assembly, full inspection is possible while still minimizing the hardware costs of camera stations. You also benefit from the modular approach to covering the scope of inspection. The inspection can be performed after each assembly step in the process or following the assembly of a component group.

  • 100% inspection even at max. cycle time

Insulin Pen Inspection—Areas

Insulin pen inspection with AVI in numerous areas

100% inspection maximizes product safety
Outstanding Product Safety

Reduce the Risk with Automated 100% Inspection

As a manufacturer of insulin pens, patient safety is your top priority. Which is why you need to guarantee the functionality and operating safety of each pen. The products must be flawless and ready to use. A comprehensive inspection ensures that no deviations occur in the assembly of the pen or the geometry of the components.

In other words, 100% defect detection optimizes product safety, thereby contributing to maximum patient safety.


Qualification Package – Play It Safe

Our inspection solutions are developed according to the GAMP® principles.

The qualification package enables a significantly simplified and accelerated implementation of the qualification process. Upon request, you can rely on having a qualification documentation according to regulations facing external audits by the authorities (e.g., FDA). Thereby, the integrated audit trail and the user administration fully comply with 21 CFR Part 11.

Insulin pen inspection—seamless integration, optimal coordination


You can integrate the VINSPEC HEALTHCARE AVI system for insulin pens seamlessly into your assembly line. The solution uses perfectly coordinated hardware and software, plus an adapted sensor design. The intelligent algorithms in VITRONIC software are specifically adjusted to meet the requirements of each inspection task thanks to easy-to-use parameters. This optimizes inspection performance.
