CS Inspection Machine Improves Efficiency

The small platform of the CS series allows up to seven camera stations for the inspection of ampules, cartridges and vials up to 100 mL of size, to detect particles in the product and cosmetic defects of the container. In addition to the visual inspection by camera high voltage leak detection, head space gas analysis, near infrared spectroscopy or glass stress verification can be integrated into the machine to detect invisible defects. The CS is equipped with improved software design and a new integrated electrical cabinet. The HMI offers the operator a graphic user interface and scores with advanced recipe manager, smart camera trigger technology, and OEE report for easy analysis of line efficiency. The separated cabinet at the back of the machine allows for quick access to electrical components as well as accessibility from all sides for cleaning.
