Case History Retinae - Bayer

Normally, big groups like Bayer have a centralised purchasing policy, which is managed and approved by a single “central body” (for Bayer, the head office in Germany). This time, however, since it was a sample line in an experimental phase, the purchasing choice for the installation of the machinery (and therefore also of the vision systems) was delegated to Italy.

The sample line in question dealt with products for triglycerides, composed of a solid material, which had to be inspected/controlled by means of a vision system that had the task of verifying its compliance with the standards.

INSPECTION SYSTEMS INSTALLED FOR BAYER

Isocounter

Because of Bayer‘s need, we immediately identified our most suitable product and chose to use the ISOCOUNTER, an extremely flexible product that with a few simple upgrades was made suitable for the inspection of solids.

What is ISOCOUNTER?

It is an inspection system that performs quality checks on tablets, capsules and sharer. Cracks, splits and colour and stain non-compliances are easily detected.

ISOCOUNTER integrates a diagnostic program that checks position, focus and other camera parameters during the inspection process.

Following the success of this first installation and the upgrade of the sampling line to an actual production line, we were contacted for a second project involving cartoning and labelling machines, also located in the same plant. 

Argolabel

We chose ARGOLABEL as the most suitable Verification System for Bayer‘s case.

What is ARGOLABEL? 

ARGOLABEL is a code verification system that checks the correct packaging of the medicine, avoiding mix-ups of parts of the packaging (box, leaflet, etc.) belonging to different products. 

This function is very important because it can guarantee a safe result both for the health of the consumer and for the legal protection of the company.

The versatility of our vision systems has enabled us to meet a wide range of customer needs. A great group like Bayer often needs several control/inspection solutions to control several lines in large plants.

Starting from a single pilot project with a good initial result has given us the opportunity to establish a long-lasting and loyal partnership with a leading international company in the pharmaceutical sector.
