KTM 0800

Fully Automated Tablet Inspection Machine for various Types of Tablets

Only available in Japan

  • Overview

    High Capacity and Inspection Accuracy

    The new KTM 0800 realizes high-speed tablet inspection while enhancing precision detection capability.

    The highly accurate camera-based imaging system ensures a 360° inspection of each tablet without blind spots. Using intense LED lighting with dimming functionality and a new 45 µm high-resolution color line camera with 10 viewing angle optics and Image Processing Unit (IPU) developed by Bosch, the KTM 0800 accurately identifies small foreign particles and tablet defects such as decoloration, breakage, chipping and stains.

    User-friendly and hygienic design

    Minimizing accumulation of dust and powder inside the machine was essential for the machine design, which is especially important to protect camera lenses, as all cameras are facing downward. In addition, flat and smooth surfaces ensure easy cleaning.

    Consequently, machine idle time for cleaning is minimized. Its position can be flexibly changed by the operator. Moreover, a tool-less design facilitates changeover and cleaning efforts. The height of conveying surfaces is considered for operator's accessibility. In addition, the machine has a compact footprint that contributes to saving valuable space.
