THE 7TH CEE PHARMACEUTICAL MANUFACTURING EXCELLENCE AWARD
PHARM Connect is the largest and most important pharmaceutical and biotechnology business summit in the Central Eastern European region, taking place annually with more than 500 participants from more than 25 countries in the region and beyond.
This award recognizes Antares Vision Group’s strong commitment to guaranteeing the quality of pharmaceutical products by designing and producing innovative inspection machines.
The Group has two production sites in Parma and Vicenza, Italy, dedicated to inspection machines. Its Inspection Machine Product Unit has more than 70 employees, including specific R&D and quality personnel.
ANTARES VISION GROUP’S AWARD-WINNING SOLUTION
Antares Vision Group designed its award-winning solution for a primary Polish pharmaceutical company. It comprises an inspection machine perfectly integrated into the customer’s production line that allows them to perform visual inspection and leak detection of four Blow-Fill-Seal (BFS) product formats. BFS containers are among the most important packaging for pharmaceuticals, but they are challenging to inspect due to their design and physical properties. However, international regulatory standards require every container to be thoroughly inspected from all sides to detect defects, contamination or foreign particles, leaks, and cosmetic flaws in the packaging.
The in-line machine features advanced inspection technologies with a reliable transportation system and dedicated infeed, eliminating BFS product deformation risk. The machine’s dedicated lighting patterns and advanced imaging techniques can identify the thinnest scratches, deformed bottles, inclusions, embedded air bubbles, and hanger defects.
Furthermore, a deep R&D plan allowed Antares Vision Group to design the appropriate solution to spot particles: free moving particles, heavy particles, and floating particles, and in-depth testing identified vacuum decay leak detection as the best technology to detect the presence of leaks in hermetically sealed plastic containers.
“We are honored to receive this award and be recognized as an innovative solution provider,” said Carlo Marconi, Business Owner Inspection Machines, Life Science & Cosmetics. “We believe this award will help us strengthen our brand awareness as a group of companies offering a wide-ranging portfolio of solutions and services to support the business growth of our customers through the digitalization of production and supply chains.”
