30x faster inspection increases production throughput

Challenge

Patient safety & faster inspection

To ensure the safety of pharmaceutical packaging, Pfizer required a sophisticated solution that was reliable and fast. The production process requires inspection and measurement of all pharmaceutical packaging to identify defects or anomalies. This process must be quick and accurate to ensure production levels are maintained. To date, this process was performed on an outdated machine which could not save or share images or reports detailing any findings or defects. In addition, the machine was stored in a facility outside of their department and could not be moved. This unnecessarily created additional operator time for each sample. The old system also took thirty minutes to start up.

Solution

Fast, accurate and reliable solution

Omni was the ideal solution for Pfizer. It provided a digitised, capable solution within their department for quick accessibility. This allowed for rapid inspection and measurement of defects. Reports are automatically generated and stored within Omni or an external USB, streamlining reporting for documentation and traceability. The Ash solution has also complimented their ability to work with international departments through live sharing results from the Omni via video meetings.

Result

30X faster inspection increases production throughput

Originally, Pfizer’s process, from start to finish, took thirty minutes, it’s now down to less than one minute. And all aspects of the process are improved – better identification, capture, reporting and sharing. The footprint of the new solution is minimal relevant to the previous, and is sited alongside the production line.
