Pharma is a complete series of visual inspection systems for pharmaceutical and medical applications. The Pharma series systems are specifically designed for the accurate dimensional measurement and surface control of pharmaceutical and medical packaging components made of rubber, aluminium or plastic, such as aluminium caps, spray valves, plungers, stoppers and needle shields.
The Pharma series includes three models: Pharma, Pharma Cap and Pharma Valve with different fields of view according to the specific application.
Guaranteeing hermetic sealing and non-contamination for all the components that come in contact with pharmaceutical or medical content is mandatory.
UTPVision's defect detection technology is the most efficient on the market and for this reason our machine vision systems are the solution of choice for many of the top pharmaceutical and medical companies worldwide.
Pharma is the latest evolution of our visual inspection technology and it’s designed specifically for dimensional and surface control of pharmaceutical and medical packaging components in rubber, aluminium and plastic.
Pharma is the most advanced UTPVision's product line and it is able to accurately inspect the entire surface of a part through non-contact optical inspection, up to a maximum part size of 35mm.

Independent measurement sensor for dimensional control pieces, with the following characteristics:
Related control program features
The software for analysis and control of components with complex shape allows the recognition of planar rotation of piece. It also recognizes the top and bottom sides and independently processes the image of the piece regardless of load position.
This system consists of two stations (internal side and external side) with each 6 progressive 2 Mpixel color scan cameras, with framing of the outside and inside of the piece.Each camera has a very low distortion lens. In addition, the system is characterized by 2 levels of colored LED lighting arranged above and below the piece. The system allows to optimize the illumination of the piece thanks to the independent regulation of the illuminators with pulsed light.
The control program allows you to detect defects on the external and internal edge of a piece and anomalies related to the mold closure and production defects that frequently occur in that area.
