Ginolis has announced the launch of Pixie, a standard system for automated optical quality inspection.

Ginolis Pixie can be used to inspect a wide variety of medical device and diagnostic components, including difficult-to-measure colours and materials, such as glossy, matte and transparent surfaces.

Measurement possibilities include 2D/3D and visual defects such as spots, impurities, scratches, air bubbles, voids and foil continuity.

Pixie can be configured with two to five servo driven axis movement and the high-speed measurement capabilities make it suitable for inline and stand-alone solutions.

Ginolis metrology specialist Pia Pihl said: “Pixie is the result of combining Ginolis’ core values from innovative and flexible automation with novel optical sensors. Our users will be able to analyse both topography and intensity values from the same scan and at high speed.

“Pixie will provide our customers with unique solutions for metrology and quality inspection. I am looking forward to the upcoming launch!”

Ginolis will be showcasing the Pixie Quality Inspection platform at AACC Clinical Lab Expo in Chicago, IL, from 31 July to 2 August.

It will also be present at Medica in Düsseldorf, Germany, from 12 November to 15 November.
