AB Graphic International has supplied Syracuse, New York-based H.P. Mile with a fleyeVision pharmacy control inspection system. The system was supplied to upgrade one of the company’s existing Omega slitter/rewinder lines also from AB Graphic International.
Michael Brady, president and owner of H.P. Mile, said: ‘As a printer to the pharmaceutical industry, we have to stay ahead of the curve with our inspection equipment. The fleyeVision Pharma Control System is a major upgrade to our existing inspection program and is going on an Omega SR1300 slitter/rewinder. We have had an excellent relationship with AB Graphic International and have been very satisfied with their products. We are excited about the company’s recent acquisition of flytec and are upgrading our current flytecVision System with the new Pharma Control System.’
The fleyeVision Pharma Control System relies on a digital camera with a resolution of up to 1392 x 1040 pixels. By using a double-camera system, the inspection accuracy can be still further enhanced attaining a resolution of up to 2784 x 1040 pixels, in effect, obtaining a level of 200 per cent label inspection. When a flaw is detected, the machine slows down and the web stops the defective image in a position enabling the operator to verify the defect and instigate corrective action. Once the machine has been powered up, reference images with printing tolerance are taught into the system. Irrelevant print face areas can be excluded from the inspection or defined for multiple areas.
Brady and his family have been involved in the pharmaceutical printing business for over 20 years. H.P. Mile was founded five years ago to integrate the latest technologies in the production process. Verification and multiple inspections are critical to the production of pharmaceutical labels. Using the Pharma Control System on all productions assures defect free labels.Tags: Optional, Popular
