On the way to ‘zero defect’ glass tubing
Roughly 100,000 data tags per minute to reach a single goal: a perfect glass tube which will eventually become the best-possible packaging of a vital drug. These glass tubes are converted to vials, syringes, ampoules or cartridges – and the more precise the tubing, the better the container. A unique Big Data approach now makes it possible to determine the tiniest of deviations in the geometry of a glass tube and sort it out, while providing a new benchmark for an entire industry.
Medical Devices: Shining bright
When medical devices need to transfer light into smallest spaces, LED technology is coming into play. The SCHOTT® LEDgine4 allows for efficient coupling of high-power LED light and optical fibers with active diameters as small as 3 to 5 millimeters. The module is able to achieve high luminous intensity and features a configurable Color Rendering Index (CRI) to meet customer-specific application needs.
