Contraceptives

SPECTRA HR - Contraceptives

Hormone preparations are a particular challenge for inspection systems as they are usually very small and different products, often sorted by week of intake, are brought together in one blister. With the high-resolution SPECTRA HR colour product inspection in combination with special inspection algorithms, scanware offers producers a safe solution for this product group as well. 

Für eine hohe Genauigkeit selbst bei großen Folienbreiten setzt scanware Mehrkamerasysteme mit 3CCD-Kameras ein. Um Farbabweichungen durch die in diesen Systemen entstehende Wärme zu vermeiden, kommt eine Wasserkühlung zum Einsatz. Für den Ausgleich von unvermeidlichen Farbunterschieden zwischen den Kameras arbeitet das System mit getrennten Farbinformationen pro Kamera und der Benutzer daher mit einem einzigen bereinigten Bild.

Inspection criteria and objects

Inspection objects:

  • Different colours within one blister
  • Different shapes in one blister
  • Special blisters like dial packs
  • Special shapes e.g. tablets with rounded corners, D-shaped or triangular

Examination criteria:

  • Presence
  • Size
  • Colour
  • Shape
  • Circumference
  • Fragments
  • Overfilling
  • Serial defect

Advantages of hormone preparation application

This application enables the inspection of different products and shapes in the same blister. The high-resolution blister inspection system detects the smallest differences in shape and colour and can also inspect all blister geometries. With the use of multi-camera systems, the most demanding inspection tasks are no challenge for scanware. The application is suitable for post-seal inspection. 

With resolutions from 1,024 × 768 to 4,092 × 768 pixels and the use of 3CCD cameras, outstanding colour separation performance is guaranteed.

Application examples

Hormone preparation with different tablet types.

The SPECTRA HR software is equipped with improved algorithms for shape recognition. This means that even different products in the same blister as well as different shapes with the smallest differences in shape can be reliably detected.

Hormone product with minimal colour differences

The SPECTRA HR software is equipped with improved algorithms for shape recognition. This means that different products in the same blister and different shapes with the smallest differences in shape can also be reliably detected.

Dialpacks and other special blisters

The software is format-independent, so that a wide variety of blister geometries can be inspected. Different product-foil combinations are also possible.

Optimal illumination for post-seal inspection

The software is format-independent, so that a wide variety of blister geometries can be inspected. Different product-foil combinations are also possible.
