Bosch Packaging: Vial inspection machines
NEW AT INTERPACK! Camera-based system inspects up to 600 containers per minute.
Bosch Packaging Technology offers a vial inspection machine, the AIM 8 series, characterized by a modular design, which allows an easy adaptation of the machines to customer-specific requirements. “With its range of different modules, we can flexibly tailor the AIM 8 to customer specifications, for instance by choosing from standardized inspection units or adding an extra inspection table,” Katsumi Shimizu, technical project leader at Bosch Packaging Technology K.K. inJapan explains.
Higher output and improved camera system
The basic module of the AIM 8 is equipped with a CMOS camera-based particle inspection system and a table for up to five inspection stations. Each station can in turn be equipped with a wide range of different inspection units. Most of these units combine two inspection types, leading to significant space-savings on the tables. Depending on their requirements, customers can expand this main module by connecting it to a sub-module containing an additional inspection table, as well as to a prespin table to reduce bubbles in the liquid or homogenize suspensions.
In contrast to previous series, a camera system is integrated into the main module as standard particle inspection unit. The new AIM 8 series is designed to inspect up to 600 containers per minute for product and cosmetic container defects, such as particles inside liquid pharmaceuticals or scratches and spots on the container. The machine model that Bosch presents at Interpack 2014 handles 450 vials per minute. Depending on product requirements and customer preferences, the proven light transmission-based SD (Static Division) system for the inspection of moving objects and fill levels is available as an option.
