DIR Technologies Announces Trial with Pfizer for Integrity Inspection System



DIR Technologies reported that Pfizer will perform a three-month trial of the company's packaging integrity testing systems based on thermal imaging. DIR technologies will install a 100% inspection system for exploration of the technology, to potentially replace destructive seal integrity testing across a number of packaging operations to evaluate speed, accuracy, and cost.

The Induction Integrity Verification System is testing in-line the integrity of the aluminum foil sealing of induction-sealed bottles. It is the first system capable of inspecting 100% of the bottles undergoing induction sealing, without resulting in production slowdown and providing continuous process verification. The inspection is done through the cap by means of high sensitivity thermal imaging. The system was launched by DIR Technologies at PACK EXPO in Las Vegas in September 2013.
