Pharma is the latest evolution of our machine for visual inspection, dimensional and surface control of rubber pharmaceutical components. Pharma is now the most advanced product of UTPVision and is able to control all the surfaces of the workpiece using the optical inspection and the through the glass technology up to a maximum size of the piece of 35 mm.
Hermetically seal and no-contamination is absolutely mandatory for the function because these items are in contact with pharmaceutical liquids. For this reason the defects inspection Is the most performant that UTPVision can offer. The system Real-Time offers a good stability to the system and extremely elevated control speed till 45.000 pcs per hour.
After thickness control through a barrage laser, the captured images and the following elaboration, the pieces are sorted in the different areas of accumulation depending on their pass/fail criteria or they can be reworked. The equipment is controlled by a PC managed by an operating system Real-Time that make both the elaborations on the images and the interaction with the operator through simple and intuitive windows interface.
You can view real time statistics and all production times, the number and the type of defects and the state of filling of the accumulation zones, it is possible to save the production reports with graphics and statistic data and integrate them on the management system for subsequent processing. The statistic software elaborates the data and calculates the values of production capability (CPK), furnishing a feed-back on the production parameters.
Machine downtime is kept to a minimum by:
The software for the analysis and the control of components with complex shape allows the recognition of planar rotation of the pieces. It also recognizes the top and bottom sides and independently process the image of the piece regardless of load position.
Independent measurement sensor for dimensional control, with the following characteristics:
This system consists of 6+6 color cameras and two levels of
color led lighting placed above and below the piece. Allows
you to detect defectiveness on the outside and inside peripheral
surface of pieces, anomalies related to the mould and
production defects that frequently are locate in these areas.
The control program allows to regulate the different crowns of led in order to optimize the illumination of the component. Can be defined many independent control areas.
