Prizewinner: Pharmaceutical Tablet Tracking and Inspection System with Basler scout GigE Cameras
The PPMA Show in Birmingham gives the UK’s processing and packaging industry a platform to display new trends and technologies. The most recent winner of the PPMA’s industry award is a pharmaceutical tablet tracking and inspection system. This innovative system was developed by Pharma Packaging Systems Ltd (PPS), which approached Machine Vision Technology (MVT) to help them develop the inspection system. MVT is a long-term-customer of Multipix Imaging, Basler’s exclusive distributor in the UK.
PPS is a company that specializes in packaging systems for the pharmaceutical industry. Its primary business is design and manufacturing of counting systems for tablets and capsules. PPS identified an opportunity to offer their customers the benefits of Machine Vision by creating an inspection solution for their existing range of counting and bottling machines.
MVT spent over one year developing this very sophisticated tracking system that tracks each individual tablet. This continuous tracking of high volumes of tablets, with their associated inspection results, is a real accomplishment. This system can inspect up to 10,000 tablets per minute. A typical feed rate for the existing system is 2,500 tablets per minute.
Thanks to our distributor Multipix, Basler scout GigE cameras play an important part in this innovative system. Congratulations to Multipix Imaging, Machine Vision Technology (MVT) and Pharma Packaging Systems Ltd (PPS) for achieving this important industry award!
