How One Change Transformed a Company: LUSTER's Solution Boosts Efficiency and Saves Millions

Jul 19, 2023

When it comes to medicine, safety should always be the top priority. That's why we take great care in ensuring that the medicine packaging  are accurate and error-free. We know that even a small printing mistake can have serious consequences, potentially putting lives at risk.


Consider this scenario: a missing decimal point on the packaging could cause a dosage of "1.6" milligrams to be mistaken for "16" milligrams, resulting in a tenfold increase in dosage. This is just one example of how important it is to get the details right.


At LUSTER, we understand the critical role that packaging plays in medicine safety. That's why we are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality products, backed by rigorous quality control measures. Trust us to deliver safe and effective medicines, every time.


In the current low-profit printing era, printing and packaging companies face various challenges such as high production costs and the need for constant equipment upgrades, which can limit profit growth. For pharmaceutical packaging companies, it is essential to ensure both printing quality and production efficiency to control costs and provide safe and effective packaging.


In this article, we reveal how the "first stock of pharmaceutical packaging printing" has achieved both quality and efficiency through intelligent transformation, safeguarding safe medication for patients. join us to discover how our cutting-edge technology and commitment to excellence make us the best choice for your pharmaceutical packaging needs.

Unlocking Profitability: Navigating Challenges in the Promising Pharmaceutical Packaging Industry


As a leading pharmaceutical packaging enterprise serving multiple brands, Company A has a complete product line consisting of pharmaceutical aluminum tubes, instructions, packaging boxes and outer packaging boxes, with an annual output of 4.8 billion pharmaceutical cartons, and maintains stable cooperative relations with the world's top 500 pharmaceutical companies and domestic well-known pharmaceutical companies, such as Johnson & Johnson, Bayer, Novartis, Sanofi, Takeda Pharmaceutical, Hengrui Medical, Qilu Pharmaceutical, etc. With the growth of business volume, it is also facing the increase of labor cost and production cost.


Pharmaceutical Packaging Industry is a labor-intensive industry. Under the traditional operation mode, factors such as low efficiency, high costs, and unstable quality, hindering the scalability of the large-scale development of enterprises. Therefore, Company A hopes to upgrade the existing production line and realize cost reduction, efficiency increase and safe production by introducing advanced equipment.



Smart Bet: Achieving Quality Control and Folder Gluer Simultaneously in Pharmaceutical Packaging


After conducting extensive research, Company A discovered LUSTER's innovative Folder Gluer quality inspection equipment. This equipment combines Folder Gluer and quality inspection into one process, reducing the number of steps and maximizing efficiency.


After visiting the equipment in use at various customer sites, evaluating product stability and post-sales service, Company A decided to choose LUSTER's Folder Gluer quality inspection equipment to adapt to their rapidly growing business needs.



Since the equipment was put into use, it has significantly improved production efficiency and reduced the workload of frontline workers. The machine operator in charge of the Folder Gluer workshop at Company A stated, "We used to manually move several tons of materials every day. Now, the integrated machine combines quality inspection and Folder Gluer, eliminating the need for manual "inspection" and "material handling" steps. During high-speed production, the machine can also 100% reject defective products, which is more accurate and stable than manual inspection."



During the deployment period, LUSTER actively cooperated with Company A to upgrade and modify the equipment to suit their specific needs. LUSTER's post-sales service was responsive and quick, earning the trust and recognition of Company A. As a result, after the first successful application of the equipment, Company A chose to repurchase from LUSTER.

Revolutionizing Pharmaceutical Packaging: Achieving 100% Precision in Rejection and 30% Efficiency Improvement with LUSTER's Innovative Equipment


Company A's folder gluer workshop has five production lines. By deploying LUSTER's folder gluer quality inspection equipment, they were able to "liberate" around 20 workers from tasks such as paper collection, secondary handling, and sampling, saving nearly $150,000 in labor costs and significantly reducing production and operation costs. This implementation achieved "machine replacement of human labor" and full automation. Compared to traditional quality inspection equipment, LUSTER's folder gluer quality inspection equipment integrates quality inspection and folder gluer processes, maximizing efficiency in a limited area with its just-in-time capabilities.


Furthermore, LUSTER's folder gluer quality inspection equipment incorporates their core proprietary technologies, including "a method and device for detecting appearance defects, a calculation method and device for collecting images of negative spacing of folder gluer, and a folder gluer quality inspection device". This equipment can control the error rate to within 5%, increase inspection efficiency by 30%, and achieve 100% precision in rejecting defective products. Additionally, the equipment is highly compatible and can connect with various folder gluer machines, effectively meeting the diverse business needs of customers.



Currently, LUSTER's intelligent products and solutions have been widely used by thousands of leading enterprises in consumer electronics, metaverse, new energy, printing and packaging, and other industries. Our business layout covers 45 countries and regions. In the future, LUSTER will continue to focus on the strategic path of machine vision, using advanced intelligent manufacturing products and solutions to help customers solve problems in intelligent manufacturing and achieve intelligent upgrades.
