AFC Foreign Checker
AFC is the in-line inspection system designed to prevent cross-contamination and detect product defects during the phase of bottles filling with tablets and capsules.
Created out of the experience of Antares Vision in the most advanced industrial sectors, AFC was originally developed for the IMA-Swiftpack machines and is now available for retrofitting on all vendors’ counting machines.
The AFC comes with a stand-alone, easy to fit, integrated module containing two high resolution colour cameras and a lighting system optimized to minimize reflections from the inox channels, thus allowing highest efficiency in defect detection.
Input-Output signals allow to command rejects of non- conforming products as well as synchronizing with machine cycles (start/stop/suspend production, etc.).
The AFC is integrated into the Antares Vision architecture and may therefore be integrated with all traditional line controls such as tray inspection, all the Universal Packaging Inspector suite, as well as all the Track and Trace systems.”
