Robotic Tube Loading

Automated tube loaders eliminate glass-to-glass contact and maintain continuous operation. This approach also improves process control and quality standards by ensuring tubing is loaded in a reliable way without the need for human contact.

Outer / Inner Dimensional Camera Inspection

High-speed digital camera systems provide 100% quality control monitoring of product dimensions. This enables complete statistical analysis of each individual vial, ensuring defects are automatically rejected and final products are manufactured to exact specifications.

Surface Quality Annealing

Annealing ovens ensure a consistent temperature is maintained by providing an automatic control of the thermal cycle. This eliminates the impact of stress on the glass vials, ensuring a high-quality product is manufactured.

Cosmetic Camera Inspection

Inline cosmetic camera inspection takes place between the annealing oven and the packing unit to ensure industry leading quality assurance by eliminating the most critical defects, including contamination, scratches, deformations, bubbles, pressure marks, airlines, chips and cracks.
