JOT Automation and Tensor ID Work on Syringe Inspection Platform

Feb 11, 2014

JOT Automation, a supplier of test and production solutions, and Tensor ID, specialists in machine vision solutions, will highlight the benefits of the companies' combined service and technology offering at ATX West as the companies exhibit together for the first time. The companies have started to codevelop a fully automated solution for the quality assurance of auto-injector syringes.

"Together we are pre-promoting an auto injection syringe inspection platform. The vision-based platform enables inspection of silicone coating inside glass syringes,” said Jorma Venäläinen, business line director of Life Sciences at JOT Automation, in the press release.

“The quality of silicone oil and its distribution on the inner syringe surface are two important factors that affect the injection performance of auto-injector devices. To better identify and screen out syringes with insufficient or non-uniform silicone oil distribution, our new technology visualizes, quantifies, and analyzes silicone oil distribution.”

"The market for auto-injectors is set to rise to 1.07 billion dollars by 2015," said Stacey Swall from Tensor ID in the press release. "In addition we see possibilities to exploit this technology for quality inspection of pipettes, vials and tubes.”
