The machine controls filled hard capsules directly on the line by meticulous examination of pharmaceutical or nutraceutical products. It allows accurate inspection of capsule appearance performed by color line sensor cameras with the possible immediate expulsion from the production line through an appropriate rejection system, when the machine detect itself anomalies on the product.
SECTORS OF USE:
Pharmaceutical, chemical, cosmetics, food, dietary, medical devices, manufacturing.
This Qualicaps inspection machine combines computer image processing technique and CCD line sensor camera to capsule rectification-transfer mechanism. The appearance of the capsule is inspected by direct image capture with the camera, controlling its orientation and rotating the capsule during intermittent transfer. The small installation footprint allows direct connection to a filling machine, and the filling machine can be controlled in accordance with the defect rate detected. Inspection is fast and highly accurate. The multi-row rotary rectification system is used to control the direction and stop the rotation of capsules for inspection at a throughput of 50,000 capsules per hour, resulting in high inspection accuracy with no blind spots. The capsule rectification and conveyance mechanism, which has a proven record in filling and sealing machines, provides gentle capsule feeding and stable inspection accuracy, making unattended operation possible. The following defects can be detected: foreign matter, dirt, tears, broken capsules, splinters, punctures, crushes, granule bites, fissures, dents, double caps, mid-capsule folds, tear-off (unjointed capsules), dissimilar, non-printed capsules, print-out, and length defects. Rectification of capsules is made by many lines rotary rectification equipment. By rectifying, inspection accuracy and high speed image processing has become possible, which is superior in stability and reliability. Capsules rectified are transferred to inspection drum which turns intermittently at high speed. By parallel lighting highly accurate and reliable inspection without dead angle can be made. Defective capsules are discharged from inspection drum turning intermittently by pressed air. Graphic panel is equipped as standard and current operation and inspection can be checked by camera, row at real time.
