Indicator liquids for chemicals, such as drugs and medication, are applied to a band-shaped carrier so that they can be used easily and reproducibly in practice (test strips). Since the test result is strongly influenced by the homogeneity of the application of the liquids, a real-time control of the application process is necessary.
ISW used an existing needle application device and equipped it with a camera-supported monitoring system for the running process. The corresponding software was also written by ISW and adapted to the special requirements. In addition to monitoring the process, including the marking of faulty areas on the continuous test strip tape, the user also has evaluation and statistical functions at his disposal. The fact that the solution is integrated into the customer’s existing production control and ERP program is also part of the services provided by ISW GmbH.
The system has been running since acceptance without any problems and to the full satisfaction of the customer.
