Line confocal imaging is a powerful method for automated medical seal verification. This technology develops high resolution 3D and 2D scan data of the internal structure of the blister pack layers and pouches commonly used in medical packaging. With multi-layer data acquired from inline scans of the sealing regions, defect detection software can isolate contamination and air gaps, flag incomplete sealing, and detect defects such as wrinkles and burn marks.
FocalSpec® sensors offer a unique solution for inline roughness characterization of moving surfaces that allows manufacturers to achieve 100% inline quality control with laboratory accuracy. These sensors are easy to integrate into existing manufacturing lines, and deliver continuous non-contact, ultra-fast scanning and analysis of surface microtopography with real-time reporting for a range of automated production processes.
