Hyperspectral Imaging is becoming an attractive process control technology for the pharmaceutical industry. Driven by the success in food quality and safety assurance, EVK has adapted Hyperspectral Imaging to be integrated into PAT systems of pharmaceutical medicine production lines.
Current PAT systems are not capable of delivering process quality information, for the whole production line, in a continuous way, with detailed spatially resolved data.
EVK’s Hyperspectral imaging solution targets the entire product stream for real-time inspection, in-situ and 24/7. Measurements of parameters, such as chemical composition, concentration, distribution and layer thickness, are easily integrated into a PAT system. This enables continuous steering and oversight of production, and real-time optimizations to speed up production.
Typical applications of EVK
Near Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging offers the degree of classification accuracy necessary for Food applications, by directly measuring the chemical molecular composition through the absorption of light (spectroscopy).
EVK’s portfolio of sensor-based sorting technology includes Colour, Hyperspectral and Inductive sensor systems, which can be used individually or, with Sensor- Fusion, can be combined to form a powerful sorting application that can process multiple material types.Hyperspectral Imaging
