Pharma & Healthcare Products

High-speed cameras for quality assurance

The pharma and healthcare industries are subject to a variety of regulations. A 100% inspection during and after production ensures compliance with high quality standards and legal regulations. Camera-based inspection systems can check for example whether labeling and packaging contents match, whether the instructions and warning sheet are included and whether the promised volume is inside. Transparent packaging and high speeds in particular represent special challenges for optical inspection systems.
Basler cameras are outstandingly well suited for various applications in the pharma and packaging industry. Among their features:
  • High resolution
  • Fast image transfer rates
  • Small design
  • Cable lengths up to 100m
