An independent subsidiary of Uhlmann Germany, visiotec GmbH, was created on April 1, 2013 to focus on inspection, monitoring, and control systems for automated pharmaceutical manufacturing processes, the company announced in a press release.
The spin-off addresses the pharmaceutical industry’s demand for a more holistic approach beyond the traditional borders of manufacturing and packaging, said the company. Visiotec will provide solutions for product quality and safety using inline monitoring, based on its expertise in process analytical technologies, such as high-speed, near-infrared analysis and advanced mass-verification technology.
Visiotec GmbH will operate globally from offices in Germany, Switzerland, and the United States. The printing, inspection, and track-and-trace products formerly offered by Uhlmann VisioTec GmbH for packaging applications will be handled by the Uhlmann Group’s dedicated Uhlmann Customer Services division.
