High-tech inspection of liquid or lyophilised parenterals at speeds of up to 24,000 containers per hr is no longer a privilege reserved only for global manufacturers. Seidenader’s CS machine customers now benefit from the same technology features and inspection stations as larger Seidenader MS or VI series customers:

• outstanding camera technology

• complementary inspection technologies

• smooth product handling by enhanced vacuum transport system — no side guidings in the starwheels

• programmable servo drives for individual rotation profiles in every position of the inspection carousel

• split infeed screw for controlled line clearance

• Seidenader hyseptic standard to meet GMP requirements.

The small platform of the CS series allows up to seven camera stations for the inspection of ampoules, cartridges and vials up to 100 ml in size, for the detection of particles in the product and cosmetic defects of the container. In addition to the visual inspection by camera, high voltage leak detection (HVLD), head space gas analysis (HSA), near infrared spectroscopy (NIR) or glass stress verification (GSI) can be integrated into the machine to detect invisible defects.

To meet various customer requirements, Seidenader has developed a new machine concept that offers flexibility by interchangeable infeed as well as outfeed systems. This concept allows the CS to run stable as well as unstable products, either inline from an upstream machine or manually loaded. This new concept will be adapted to all Seidenader machine platforms.

The CS is equipped with an enhanced software design and a new integrated electrical cabinet. The clearly laid out HMI offers the operator an intuitive graphic user interface and scores with advanced recipe manager, smart camera trigger technology and OEE reporting for easy analysis of line efficiency. The separated cabinet at the back of the machine allows for quick access to electrical components as well as accessibility from all sides for easy cleaning. Sealed optical elements, column concept, trimmed edges and hidden cables — the Seidenader hyseptic standard — also contribute towards GMP compliance.
