Packaging and print placement inspection
McKesson Packaging uses Cognex vision software for packaging and print quality inspection to keep up with FDA directives. The system, customized by Micron PharmaWorks Inc. is an addition to a pre-existing inspection system for the actual pills themselves. Its purpose is to increase the quality control of blister packs for McKesson Packaging. Cognex is performing several functions: looking for either a lack of, or excessive print, verifying bar codes, and searching for any deviations from an example provided. Cognex was able to supply a training mechanism that stores an exemplary image into the system that all other images are judged upon. This inspection system is replacing work that was previously done manually.
