ChecKITtube. Quality controls for flawless squeezable tubes
ChecKITtube is a hardware and software kit that can be installed on every tube filling and closing machine on the market. It is a complete packaging inspection equipment that comes in a pre-assembled kit, and allows the reading of pharma codes on squeezable tubes and the checking of tubes correct orientation.
Accurate code acquisition during tube rotation
Perfect tubes closure and artwork centering
Control 100% of the products
Real time control
No machine speed reduction
Squeezable tubes, packaging and codes inspection at an higher level
ChecKITtube is a complete solution for packaging inspection that combines an Hardware Kit and a software developed by SEA Vision to control squeezable tubes packaging codes, even during the high-speed rotation on the tube filling and closing machine.
The software is designed to control: the squeeze tubes correct orientation, the printed pharmacodes or mini-pharma code, and the printed vertical notch on the tube’s side to be sealed.
In order to overcome the limits of a traditional cameras images acquisition in the reading of long codes on cylindrical objects, checKITtube uses a sensor provided with a LED emitter and RGB photodiodes. While the RGB photodiodes allow the control of pharmacodes (even coloured), the LED technology allows the reading of long codes printed on cylindrical objects.
According to the position of the codes or notch, the vision system is able to exchange a signal with the machine to correctly orientate the tube, ensuring perfect graphic artwork positioning.
An integrated microprocessor ensures inspection results in just milliseconds, without affecting the machine’s speed.
The installed software and the integration with the machine PLC, grant the highest quality inspection procedures and a defects-free production: while 100% of products units are inspected, the vision system manages the rejection of each non-compliant item.
The vision system is specifically designed for the pharmaceutical market, and it is compliant with the industry regulations, with user access regulated by FDA 21 CFR part 11 and annex 11. All events are registered by the software in an audit trail file to keep track of all the security-relevant activities.
The continuous Software development follows Gamp 5, to always improve products quality and consistency.
The powerful vision inspection system: Databox
The kit is provided with Databox system, a powerful vision system completely developed in-house by SEA Vision. Databox is capable to control 1D, 2D and non-serialized codes, perform OCV/OCR control on variable data and special inspections on the packaging.
Fully integrated with yudoo
The solution’s software is natively integrated with Yudoo, the 4.0 pharmaceutical software suite for the full management of automation processes, digital quality, data analysis and for Track&Trace. A digital hub that is everywhere accessible through a secure-access web interface or dedicated devices.
A scalable and modular suite, including tools for automation (centralized management of production, workflows and timesheet), for the digital quality (creation of paperless systems, support systems for line clearance operations), for data analysis (analysis of production data, business intelligence dashboard, condition monitoring and predictive maintenance) and for Track and Trace (complete solutions for Level 3 and 4 of serialization, monitoring of serialization operations).
Yudoo offers multiple advantages such as the possibility to centralize production formats and data, avoiding duplicates and reducing work time. The suite can connect to existing company systems to retrieve updated data exactly from where they are.
One player, one vendor, one solution provider
SEA Vision provides an extensive product portfolio of natively integrated solutions. Vision, traceability and data management solutions for pharmaceutical packaging lines are developed with a common approach to obtain a seamless ecosystem.
