Blister Pack Inspection

Blister Pack Inspection

Blister Pack Inspection

The Challenge:

Medical blister packs are formed and filled at a rate of 3 packs per second. Each blister pack needed to be checked to ensure that:

  • The right tablets/capsules are in the blister packs.
  • That there are no missing tablets/capsules.
  • That the tablets are not broken.

The solution needed to meet the requirements of  CFR 21 Part 11 compliance standards. The cameras needed to be integrated to the PLCs / production line and reject mechanisms to ensure containment of the defective packs. Images of the defects need to be logged and displayed to the operator to help identify manufacturing faults.

Our Solution:

A turnkey vision inspection solution with a simple interface checked every pack at a rate of up to 5  packs per second. The cameras are enclosed in an IP68 rated Stainless Steel enclosure and the whole system meets CFR 21 Part 11 compliance standards. The solution was integrated to a PLC and associated reject mechanisms to provide containment of any defective packs. Images of any defects are stored on the network and displayed to the operator to help identify manufacturing faults.

Features of the system:

  • Uses a robust Cognex In-Sight stainless steel sensor
  • Easy-to-use operator interface
  • Inspects at rate of up to 4 blister packs per second
  • Blister Pack Inspection
