We at Nipro hold ourselves to the golden standard of continuous commitments. We are committed to innovative solutions, to being your preferred partner, and to progress.

Even though our pre-fillable syringe (PFS) assembly process is already state of the art with automation, laser-based cutting, and in-line camera inspections – we still strive to provide you with first-class, future-proof solutions.

“Progress is not inevitable. It’s up to us to create it.”

We are proud to introduce a 100% in-line X-ray inspection system for our PFS assembly process.

This innovative, double-stage X-ray inspection system significantly increases the accuracy of closure placements.

With this technology added to our already highly sophisticated camera inspection system, we have implemented yet another quality step in the manufacturing of PFS – to meet the quality requirements of the pharmaceutical packaging market of today and tomorrow.

x-ray inspection
Our Technology:

Pulsed X-ray, low irradiation.  

Aspects controlled:

  • Pierced and bent needles
  • Dimensional inspection
  • Inspection for damage
  • Correct assembly
  • Inclination
  • Orientation
  • Depth of needle penetration into solid part of needle shield

Your benefits:

  • Improved Total Cost of Ownership
    Less risk of closure failures during Fill Finish operations due to 100% in-line inspection of needle & closure.

  • Patient Comfort & Safety
    Safer and more comfortable injections thanks to significantly reduced risk of bent needles or pierced needle shields

  • Gentle Inspection Process
    No risk for the product as a result of applying pulsed X-ray low irradiation. The radiation grade is lower than the X-ray exposure during a transatlantic flight.
