Introduction

Pharmaceutical companies are becoming increasingly demanding with regard to the cosmetic quality of containers: scratches and breakages may indeed cause problems during the filling phase.

Stevanato Group systems allow for detecting cosmetic defects based on customizable quality levels. The cosmetic inspection systems are installed after the annealing section and ensure 100% cosmetic camera inspection.

Stevanato Group cosmetic control systems are able to satisfy the most demanding pharmaceutical quality requirements.

Features

  • Multiple areas of inspection
  • Customisable quality level
  • Automatic rejection of defective products
  • Statistical analysis of each parameter
  • Digitally stored measurements
  • Real-time production data on HMI
  • Combination of linear-scan cameras and matrix-scan cameras

 


 

Cleaner cosmetic control:  multiple eyes to ensure quality

Stevanato Group’s latest development in the cosmetic control area is Cleaner Plus, which can be installed on the conveyor line from the annealing oven to the packing unit.

Cleaner Plus is comprised of 9 cameras that inspect each part of the vial (body, shoulder, collar, neck, mouth, bottom) and detect the most critical defects (contamination, scratches, deformations, bubbles, pressure marks, airlines, chips, and cracks).

Features

  • Multiple areas of inspection
  • Customisable quality level
  • Automatic rejection of defective products
  • Statistical analysis of each parameter
  • Digitally stored measurements
  • Real-time production data on HMI
  • Combination of linear-scan cameras and matrix-scan cameras

 

Argo: in-line Advanced Cosmetic Camera Control

The Argo (Advanced Cosmetic Camera Control) system is suitable for flexible packaging configurations, using large box buffer and different reject trays.

Thanks to its plastic cell belt, it prevents glass-to-glass contact and boasts improved performance due to the absence of mechanical components in the inspection area.

Features:

  • Product: vials
  • Speed: max 9,000/hour (depending on format size)
  • Format size: min Ø 14 mm / max Ø 30 mm
  • Motion: indexing
  • Large-size LED lights
  • Machine dimensions:3,800x2,800x2,150 (mm)
  • Weight: 4,500 kg
  • Type of control: cosmetic

 

EVA

The pharmaceutical industry is increasingly demanding with regard to the cosmetic quality of glass vials, therefore an automatic inspection system is necessary to guarantee the effectiveness and reliability of controls.

To satisfy the requirements of converting companies, Spami has created EVA, an automatic inspection machine that checks pharmaceutical containers (vials) at a higher speed compared to conventional converting machines.

For this reason, it was designed as an off-line machine capable of processing containers coming from multiple lines. EVA is equipped with a high-performance camera inspection system that detects cosmetic defects along the entire surface of the vials (body, shoulder, neck, collar, flange surface, bottom side), such as cracks, scratches, airlines, bubbles, dirt marks, etc.


Technologically advanced in-line or stand-alone systems for detecting cosmetic defects, capable of satisfying the most demanding pharmaceutical quality requirements

Thanks to its high speed – up to 12,000 pieces per hour – it can process the output of several vials forming machines.

The machine is extremely flexible and can cover the full range of standard vials.

The containers can be loaded on trays or on a conveyor. Unloading can occur either on trays or directly on a conveyor.

The machine is manufactured with FDA-approved materials and components and is therefore suitable for operating in a pharmaceutical environment.
