Supreme colour separation.

The scanware Product Inspections provide an application for every task – whether black and white, colour, high resolution or in 3D. All systems are tailored to project-specific requirements and offer highest security with simple handling. The illumination adjustment enables the inspection of various product-foil combinations at highest reliability.

Colour Product Inspection

Colour inspection used to detect cross-contamination, size, position as well as broken products and double fillings. It is the ideal solution for common inspection tasks. For use in complex tasks, soft- and hardware can be upgraded. Due to the adjustable illumination and highly specialised software, the system offers a lot more than average inspection systems.

Area of Application
Applicable Objects:
  • Tablets
  • Oblongs
  • Sugar-coated tablets
  • Hard and soft gel capsules
Inspection Critera:
  • Colour
  • Presence
  • Size
  • Shape
  • Perimeter
  • Position
  • Broken products
  • Overfilling
  • Surface defects
  • Consecutive errors
  • Magnificent speed and encompassing analytical options
  • All parameters can be used simultaneously – at the same high speed
  • Homogenous, reproducible and adjustable illumination
  • Prime hardware and a large software package based on real-time operating system QNX®
  • The system can be upgraded to SPECTRA HR at any time in case of increasing requirements. That way, specialist requirements can be fulfilled.

The use of the real-time operating system QNX® enables high-speed signal processing and high failure safety.

Security is increased by more advantages of the system:

The modular built enables the expansion for increasing and future requirements. This makes the system future-proof.

The system is fully 21 CFR Part 11 compliant; format versions are saved separately. The memory contains up to 50 images which are the basis for an individual suggestion of parameter settings. This offers a higher level of security than standardised settings that the user needs to adjust according to his inclination and higher user comfort.


The Camera Link interface enables the safe and low-noise transfer even of large data. Compared to USB and FireWire, Camera Link enables a greater cable length.
The evaluation unit offers high performance so all parameters can be used simultaneously at high speed.

Our medium option others cannot reach. Thanks to using QNX®, the software runs in real-time. All features can be used simultaneously – at high speed.

Some of our extraordinary software features:

  • Documentation of production and format
  • Evaluation of pocket and lane feeding
  • Partial teach-ins for product colour, size and background colour enable adapting to lot-specific varieties
  • Thorough Audit Trail
  • Easy-to-follow guided menu

Automation of the teach-in simplifies the process so production can start in minimum time. Object position, blister geometry and product colour are recognised automatically. A manual teach-in is also possible.

Feeding statistics for lanes and pockets available for optimising production and error analysis. The visualisation of statistical data enables simple recognition of consecutive errors.

During format testing, pocket-specific values of deviations are displayed. This allows a precise analysis of faulty products.

Tolerances can be set on a global level by the administrator. Thus, the user can only operate within these frames when making changes. This increases production security.

Illumination Adjustment

scanware offers numerous standardised illumination units suitable for every application. Top light, back light, side light units can be combined to achieve ideal illumination. The use of W-LEDs offers a long lifetime without any loss in brightness during their lifetime.

The illumination is adjusted to the optimal level using a simple measuring line. Every unit can be adjusted in 16 levels to achieve the ideal contrast between product and background. The settings are saved as part of the format and consequently remain constantly reproducible.
