Box Insert Detection

In the pharmaceutical industry where medication is boxed, each unit must contain a product information insert.

To confirm that each unit includes a product information insert, an iVu Series sensor by Banner Engineer is mounted above the packaging line. The sensor is configured for a Match inspection and checks that the product information leaflet is inserted into each package of medication. The leaflet can be placed in any orientation but must face up.The sensor can detect 360 degrees of rotation to find the insert. If the insert is missing or upside-down, the sensor sends a fail output to the line, and the package is rejected.


  • Ensures the product meets industry requirements without slowing the production.
  • Built in display for easy setup and product changes.
  • No PC required to configure, change or monitor.
