Solving Applications with Vision Sensors

Compared to the other types of sensors on the market, vision sensors greatly expand the types of simple inspections a pharmaceutical manufacturer can perform and provide information beyond whether a part is simply present or absent.

By reducing defects and increasing yield, machine vision sensors can help pharmaceutical manufacturers streamline their operations and increase profitability by:

  • Inspecting multiple elements per target
  • Differentiating between colors
  • Responding to misalignment and planned variability
