    More about medical device and pharmaceutical inspection systems

    Why do medical device manufacturers need to use machine vision?

    Machine vision is now a standard technology applied in medical device manufacturing. It allows for the seamless automated inspection or guidance, coupled with the ability to save tangible, easily-recallable data. Vision systems worked at speed, don’t get tired, and don’t need a break – allowing continuous, repeatable results with known payback for the producers. All systems are validated to GAMP and FDA standards, providing peace of mind that products are being 100% inspected, with the correct system, at speed.

    How does machine vision integrate into automotive production processes?

    How does machine vision integrate into pharmaceutical production processes?

    IVS systems support multi-protocol communication in the medical device and pharmaceutical industry. Industrial network connectivity is provided out-of-the-box to minimise time for integration and commissioning of the systems into medical manufacturing processes. Real-time ethernet and fieldbus interfaces including Profibus, Modbus, DeviceNet, EtherCAT, CANopen, Ethernet Powerlink, Profinet, Ethernet IP, CC-Link and MQTT are all supported for quick and easy integration into modern automation lines and cells.
