Bench Vision Unit


Our Bench Vision Unit has been developed to provide maximum flexibility, with the same software and component design as our automatic visual inspection equipment used on production lines throughout the world.

  • Container range: ampoules, vials, cartridges, syringes
  • Inspected products: water-like, viscous, suspensions

With this smart and user-friendly unit it is possible to:

  • Process images and inspect both cosmetic defects and particles
  • Re-inspect containers rejected by automatic inspection lines to reduce false rejects
  • Support operators in the fine tuning of inspection recipes
  • Setup inspection parameters offline (rotation of the mandrels, light intensity, inspection tools, to name a few) in order to increase overall yield and efficiency of the process


  • Future proof equipment: from R&D and pre-clinical tests to market phase
  • High flexibility and modularity
  • Easy to set up, use and maintain
  • Same inspection software as SG automatic inspection systems
  • Adjustable inspection parameters
  • Compact dimensions


R&D applications

  • Laboratory Equipment
    • Cosmetic and particle analysis and remote image processing make it a useful lab tool to speed-up R&D activities
  • Minimize False Rejects
    • Re-inspect rejected containers and reduce the risk of false rejects, reducing TCO especially for high value difficult-to-inspect drugs
  • Production Quality Preview
    • Inspect new products with the same technology and accuracy of a full scale Automatic Vision inspection Machine

Operational Applications

  • Batch Release
    • In combination with SG Lab services, we can support batch release activities (e.g. protocols for light inspection)
  • New Recipe Generation
    • Speed up the generation of new recipes for automatic vision inspection systems by preparing and performing knapp tests offline
