Vial Stopper Inspection

Challenge

In the pharmaceutical industry where vials are filled with liquid medication at high-speed, as soon as each vial is filled, a stopper must be properly inserted into the vial.

Solution

To ensure that a stopper is properly inserted as each vial leaves the filling station, an iVu Series sensor—set up for an Area with Motion application—verifies that the vial has a stopper inserted into its neck and that the stopper is positioned correctly to provide a proper seal on the glass vial. If the stopper is missing or incorrectly positioned, then the sensor sends a fail output to the line.
