Our SureCount Inspection System mounts directly to a high-speed bottle filler and provides that extra level of quality assurance to every bottle. Every bottle will have the correct number of tablets or capsules. Any bottles with an incorrect count are rejected by the system. The SureCount Inspection System consists of five different modules: the sensor head, the light head, the control software, the reject system, and the air knife.
Features of the SureCount Inspection System for Your Tablet Counter
‘Snap-in’ sensor head and light head make for quick changeovers.
Sealed, through-beam technology offers highly reliable and fast sensing.
Infrared sensors are immune to visible light and eliminate the chance of false triggering.
All parameters are recipe controlled for validation, security, and easy changeover.
The software features an auto-setup mode for intuitive functionality.
How the SureCount Inspection System Works
Once the system is in place, the light head and sensor head work in tandem to shine an infrared light beam through a hole in the bottom of each slat cavity. If a tablet is missing from the slat, the beam is detected. The control software monitors the sensor and quickly makes an accept or reject decision for each bottle according to your preset recipe controlled parameters.
The reject station removes the designated bottles from the conveyor. Then, the air knife blows air through the holes in the empty slats to make sure there’s no buildup of dust in the holes. A secondary Tablet Verification System can be provided after the manifold to verify all tablets emptied out of the slats into the bottle.
