New approaches to selecting and using inspection and weighing equipment can help pharmaceutical processors better meet accuracy and safety objectives.
Metal detectors have long been a staple in pharmaceutical tablet press, capsule filling and deduster applications. This technology is also used in conjunction with packaging line operations. However, there can be challenges and limitations when metal-based packaging components, such as metalized film and foil seals, are part of the primary structure.
Implementing new technology—such as X-ray inspection—can help expand both inspection and detection capability.
