System touts total inspection of pills bottled via slat filler

By Jenni Spinner in Inspection on September 19, 2019

The new AV Slat View is designed to provide 100% inspection of tablets and capsules bottled with a slat filler. The scalable inspection machine from Antares Vision inspects uncoated and coated tablets, in addition to single- or two-color capsules, and comes in widths for 12 to 48 inches of coverage. It is suitable for handling pharmaceuticals, including over-the-counter (OTC) products, nutraceuticals and vitamins.

Designed to work with a variety of manufacturers’ slat-fillers, the AV Slat View is a turnkey unit offering ease of integration and simple setup. The unit enables quick, easy setup of product recipes, and unlimited recipe storage for rapid, reliable changeover down the road. It works with slat fillers reaching speeds up to 300 bottles per minute, ensuring correct counts where manual processes cannot.

Other features include a user-friendly interface, advanced color detection algorithm, robust dust management, and a validation package with high accuracy and low false reject rate. Additionally, a custom-configurable alarm flags and rejects bottles with potential objects, reducing the need to stop the line.

Antares Vision will show the AV Slat View at Healthcare Packaging Expo 2019 (Sept. 23-25; Las Vegas—co-located with Pack Expo Las Vegas) in Booth N-224.
