Packaging Machinery Manufacturer, Sepha Ltd.Reports Record Year for Sales of its Visionscan Leak Detection Machine and its Pharmaceutical Deblistering Equipment

Belfast, Northern Ireland (PRWEB) January 29, 2013

Sepha Ltd. has reported a significant increase in new orders at the end of its Financial Year, 40% of which are for its non-destructive blister pack inspection machines such as Visionscan. Visionscan uses hi-resolution imaging technology to test for leaks in the packaging of pharmaceutical tablets and capsules. Sepha's machines have given customers a flexible and lower cost entry-point into non-destructive leak detection which is more technologically advanced and reliable than traditional leak testing practices.

Visionscan is the world's first tool-less, vision-based leak detection machine for blister-packs. It has been developed to meet growing demand from pharmaceutical blister pack manufacturers for a low cost yet accurate and modern leak detection alternative to the blue dye test that can be integrated into their quality control systems. It uses high resolution camera imaging technology to detect defects in individual blister pockets and weak seals in less than 60 seconds. Because it is tool-less, 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and capable of detecting defects down to 15 micron, it is ideal for contract and generic manufacturers where speed, accuracy and multiple product change over is required.

The strong performance comes on the back of a 30% increase the previous year and has enabled the company to invest in an increase in its skilled workforce in the areas of customer support and R&D. 95% of Sepha's sales are now exported around the world and the company is selling its specialist leak detection, blister packing and deblistering machinery to pharmaceutical companies across every major continent. In the past year, the company has added Argentina, Colombia and New Zealand to the list of countries where it is currently doing business.

Sepha's CEO, John Haran said the company's success is down to a three-pronged approach, "an increased focus on direct customer engagement, continued product innovation & product launches over the past two years, and being able to respond quickly to the changing regulatory requirements of our major customers."

Underpinning the success has been an improved agent training and support programme, as well as global road-shows to supplement attendance at major international trade shows. "Rather than wait for new customers to visit our stands, we have been able to visit client facilities directly and provide live demonstrations of our machines utilizing their products. This has proven extremely beneficial and has demonstrated the cost saving and quality improvement benefits of equipment," continued Mr Haran.
