Pure Pills: Packaging System for Pills with Basler scout GigE Cameras
British company Pharma Packaging Systems Ltd (PPS) specializes in packaging systems for the pharmaceutical industry. Their main 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.
The purpose of the inspection is to check for goods that are broken, or that do not match with the desired shape. What’s more, products can be detected, that are not part of the correct batch in order to prevent cross contamination. In the pharmaceutical industry, cross contamination, if left undetected before the affected batch leaves the manufacturer can cause the whole factory to be shut down for a period in addition to crippling fines.
