The Raised Stopper Inspection, a solution for detecting industrial bottle clogging errors in a sterile environment – Controls Tests Measures

The only solution on the market dedicated to the inspection of freeze-dried vials in a sterile environment, the Raised Stopper Inspection (RSI) is equipped with a system of high-performance cameras and manages the zone located between the corking and the capping, hitherto uncontrolled. in primary pharmaceutical packaging.

Antares vision group, Italian leader in traceability, product protection, visual inspection, tracking solutions and intelligent data management and located in France in Lyon (69), participated for the 5e consecutive year at Pharmapack, the European pharmaceutical packaging exhibition which took place at Paris Expo – Porte de Versailles on May 18 & 19, 2022.

The opportunity for Antares vision group to present on its stand C38 Hall 7.2 the Raised Stopper Inspection, an innovative solution for detecting industrial errors in the clogging of vials in a sterile environment.

RSI reduces the risk of air ingress and contamination

Developed to acclimatize to sterile Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) manufacturing environments, the Raised Stopper Inspection has the following actions:

  1. Detect the space between the neck and the base of the bottle stopper;
  2. Dismiss those whose caps do not fully adhere to the vial collars, such as tilted, misplaced, missing or damaged caps.

The risks of air ingress and contamination are then reduced and in the event of repeated faults, the machine provides immediate feedback to pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Raised Stopper Inspection technology is part of Antares vision’s track&trace solutions.

It makes it possible to manage the zone located between corking and capping, hitherto uncontrolled in primary pharmaceutical packaging.

Raised Stopper Inspection lends itself to the development of new vision applications in sterile and non-sterile pharmaceutical operations.

Compact (total length of 760 mm) and autonomous, specifically designed for detection in a sterile environment, Raised Stopper Inspection can be integrated into both existing lines and new lines.

RSI is at the service of performance

  • Inspection speed: up to 30 units/min.
  • Compatibility with a wide range of bottles, from 10 to 300 ml, and caps, from 20 to 32 mm.
  • Quick format change: 15 minutes is enough!
