Pharmaceutical and Medical: Pharmacy Automation
Our products are used to solve a number of automation applications, such as verifying the presence of a cap or closure, measuring fill levels, detecting tablets as they are dispensed, ensuring label presence and accuracy, and capturing images of filled medications for drug verification. Across the industry, companies rely on products and solutions from Banner Engineering to solve challenging applications throughout pharmacy automation, prescription fulfillment, and drug storage and retrieval systems.
One global provider of healthcare products had been using vision machines to detect particulates in their liquid pharmaceuticals. When the machines were no longer able to detect contaminants to the required percentage level, the company began using human visual inspections. Since many of the particulates are extremely minute, the company needed to install bright and highly uniform illumination in their work stations so operators could effectively verify the quality of products.
A recent industry switch from polypropene (PP) to polyethylene terephthalate (PETE) bottles prompted a leading US mail-order facility to re-evaluate their fulfillment process. With over 2,000 red LED sensors to be replaced, the facility turned to Banner for a solution.
