The G180

Inspect Medication &
Medical Devices

The G180 uses active pixel sensor technology to generate high resolution imaging in real-time for medical and pharmaceutical applications.

Utilising the latest active pixel sensor (APS) technology, the G180 inspection system can achieve a resolution 10 times greater than traditional x-ray technology. The G180 is designed specifically for the needs of the pharmaceutical industry with a capability to inspect medication and medical devices (such as insulin pumps and inhalers). The system can confirm component integrity, as well as checking fill levels in vials, dosing levels in capsules, the integrity of blister packs, seals, and patient leaflet verification.

Sapphire’s systems are unrivalled in the industry for sensitivity, speed, and sophistication of detection, identifying critical assembly errors or contaminants in medication and medical devices, where other techniques may not.

Using a wide range of product handling methods to feed the products into the inspection station, the G180 can automatically reject and mark defective items.
