Inspection for package inserts with
VISION EXPERT 4000+ LEAFLET

Package inserts for pharmaceutical products are extremely sensitive printed products. In the worst-case scenario, flaws in the print process can affect the dosing instructions and hence endanger health. The statutory regulations laid down in the “Pharmaceutical and active ingredient production” ordinance make high demands of secondary packaging material, such as packing inserts for pharmaceutical products. Suppliers of printing services must also be approved by pharmaceutical manufacturers as part of their quality management system.

Previously, package inserts were only inspected on a random sample basis – this is no guarantee for them being free of defects. Only fully automatic inspection with the VISION EXPERT 4000 PHARMA inspection system ensures flaw-free printing of package inserts and guarantees products which are completely free of flaws.
