After multiple joint projects, image processing machine vision experts Vitronic and Ilshofen packaging machine manufacturer for the pharmaceutical industry, Bausch and Ströbel, have entered into a framework agreement for even closer co-operation in the future.

The partnership will benefit from Bausch and Ströbel’s 40 years of experience as a packaging machine manufacturer for the pharmaceutical industry and medical technology sector as well as Vitronic’s 30 years of machine vision expertise in standardised single-source solutions for complex processing methods. The aim is to ensure that all their projects are conducted with a single contact and short durations.

Many demanding customer projects have already been jointly completed. For example, thanks to the Vitronic machine vision systems integrated into the Bausch and Ströbel filling and packaging solutions, it is possible to inspect the quality of crimp caps on vials, even in the high-performance sector.

Further GAMP-related inspections include the correct fitting of the rubber stoppers and the cap colours of the crimp caps. In addition, the auto-ID systems can automatically record 1D/2D codes and characters (OCR) on the top of the caps and the cap casing area.

The companies have several new projects involving global pharmaceutical companies ready for implementation.
