InspectifAI: for a more sustainable pharmaceuticals production

InspectifAI uses intelligent algorithms and continuous learning from data to optimize the inspection processes in pharmaceuticals production, thus making an essential contribution to sustainability.

Compared to conventional inspection machines, the AI-based solution impresses due to its versatility and precision during visual inspection of drugs. The latter is crucial for patient safety while also preventing the unnecessary discarding of perfectly good drugs. Precise inspection significantly reduces the number of errors, ensuring an increase in drug quality and a significant reduction in waste. Technological innovation contributes to the production of high-quality drugs without consuming excessive resources and enables the pharmaceutical industry to implement more efficient, more sustainable production processes.

Value4Data: data for sustainable decisions

The Value4Data initiative creates the technical basis for implementing sustainability projects across the Group.

The initiative provides a data lake and digital tools for data acquisition, storage, management, analysis and visualization as a foundation for data handling and analysis, which the Körber Group can use directly. These can be used to undertake sustainability projects for internal and external purposes which are related to the carbon emissions footprint of our machines and the associated analysis of carbon emissions. 

Value4Data can serve as a basis for deriving measures for sustainable production within the context of the Green Digital Twin. During this process, data are utilized from various sources along the value chain and analyzed using AI-based technologies.

Switch 75: for greater resource efficiency

The compact, fully automatic Switch 75 is a visual inspection machine for vials and syringes and helps to ensure sustainable production thanks to its flexibility and efficient processes.

The Switch 75 can be quickly retooled and offers numerous connectivity options for further data processing. With a footprint of a mere 4 m², the machine performs safe, reproducible inspections of small batches in line with regulations without glass contact for the inspected products.  Its compact design ensures that only a few format parts are needed for a product change. This means manufacturers can make a swifter change between individual orders than otherwise possible thanks to a high-performance machine. Switch 75 boosts the efficient use of resources by enhancing efficiency in production processes, particularly for small batches. 

As the first flexible inspection machine for vials and syringes, Switch 75 impresses from a financial and ecological perspective since producers only need one inspection machine for different application options.
