Tablet inspection and printing system

World’s First
Tablet visual inspection system + Tablet print inspection unit = Tablet inspection and printing system
No.1 market share "tablet visual inspection system", and the high-performance "tablet printing inspection unit" have been combined.
A high-performance tablet inspection and printing system that uses inkjet printing.
Compatible with Ultra-fast-drying DRY Ink
Our originally developed DRY ink can be used with a wide range of tablets from uncoated to film-coated, sugar-coated, etc.
The ultra-fast-drying ink eliminates misprints and ink stain.
Print Inspection System
Based on the technology cultivated in our tablet visual inspection systems, Viswill have developed our own print inspection algorithm and can reliably sort out of good tablets and defects.
Providing the optimized design
Viswill provide the optimized print design, including printing on both sides of a scored line and printing on shaped tablets.
Stress-Free Maintenance Function for Inkjet Head
The inkjet head unit is designed to be easy to attach and remove, allowing easy maintenance through the use of a Separately located offline washing unit.
The inkjet head unit is set to the offline washing unit, and the process form ink collecting – cleaning – ink filling is performed automatically by pressing the operation button.
There are three change over parts
Changeover for different tablet setting takes only 15 minutes.
The only parts to change are Punched plate for larger and smaller tablets rejection and the height gate.
Easy Dock
Tablet print inspection unit with inkjets (Easy Dock) that can easily be docked to our TVIS-EX Series tablet visual inspection system.
Docking makes it possible to combine the tablet visual inspection system with tablet print inspection unit.
PS-A and PS-W
The Easy Dock inkjets come in two types—PS-A for pigmented ink and PS-W for dye-based ink.
