Genesis Packaging Technologies
Genesis vial inspection platform is designed to be added either prior to or after existing capping operations to achieve additional inspection criteria. The VIP has a main star wheel and a discharge star wheel so that non conforming product can be rejected without human intervention. When placed in front of the existing vial capping equipment, it can be used to test for single or multiple attributes such as raised stopper detection, head space analysis or the presence of moisture using near IR technology. When integrated after the vial capping process, the Genesis VIP can be used to apply and verify lot numbers or other identifying features or could again be used as a platform for testing analysis. The VIP is designed to easily integrate with all forms of Westcappers® as well as most other commonly used capping machines.
