Semi-Automatic Machine Showcasing Inspection Technology at P-MEC Europe
The Marchesini Group - together with its partner and co-exibitor Sea Vision - will take part in P-MEC Europe, part of CPhI Worldwide, from November 5 – 7. The machine on show at Stand 110D60 is a SV model designed by CMP Phar.Ma, a new company of the Marchesini Group.
SV is a semi-automatic machine for the inspection of liquid, lyophilised or powder products in ampoules, vials and cartridges or pre-filled syringes. It is equipped with brushless motors for fast rotation (before inspection) and slow rotation (during inspection) to guarantee complete and efficient product control, states the company. The containers are conveyed to the inspection station where the operator inspects them through a magnifying lens. The rejected products are automatically collected in trays.
The machine can operate in line with other units or factory-set to be loaded and unloaded in trays with customised dimensions. It can be configured as multiple inspection stations placed sequentially or in parallel according to the customer’s requirements.
Capacity ranges from 1 ml to 1,000 ml; the machine can handle up to 100 pieces per minute. According to the firm, in 1982, CMP was the first in the world to launch automatic laser inspection machines for vials. From then, CMP has continued to grow and today is one of the leading brands for inspection technologies.
Following the CMP acquisition in December 2018, the Marchesini Group has confirmed its name as manufacturer of complete lines for producing and monitoring the whole pharmaceutical packaging process, from start to finish, thanks also to the Group’s partner, Sea Vision, which also participated in the CMP transaction. The firm opines that P-MEC Europe will be the occasion to showcase at an international fair its Made in Italy technology for the inspection of pharmaceutical products.
