“Smart, easy to use, and we can use it very quickly on all processes without a big change.”

Production Engineer, Pharmaceutical Manufacturer, France

“We generated powerful data in this easy manner and were able to improve reject rates. We were also able to use the drone before buying new equipment for qualification activities. That’s why SmartSkin was a perfect fit for us.”

Process Specialist, Pharmaceutical Company, Belgium


Purpose-built for your environment.

SmartSkin drones and Quantifeel™ software are built for your environment. Whether you want to map the forces across your line to optimize performance, determine the optimal baseline setup for faster changeovers, or diagnose the root cause of breakage and damage events, we can get you started.

All solution suites include a ready-to-use tablet with the software pre-installed, a pair of SmartSkin drones and charging cables, and a protective case.

No integrations required – just open the box, charge the drone and you’re ready to start collecting data.

The Power Trio: Hardware, Software, Industry Expertise.

Step into the future with SmartSkin’s technology. SmartSkin drones are sensor-enabled replica containers that measure pressure, shock, and motion across your line. Quantifeel™ software transforms this data into actionable insights highlighting critical areas where the risk to container integrity and product quality is high.

And don’t worry, you’re never alone. Our support team includes industry experts, with decades of experience in pharmaceutical manufacturing and machinery, who are always there to maximize your SmartSkin system’s potential.

Get instant insight as soon as you receive your system.

Simply turn on your SmartSkin drone and place it on the line alongside empty or water-filled containers and run it in-line through the area being investigated. Use the provided tablet with Quantifeel™ software to view the data, capture video footage, and pinpoint the exact areas that are experiencing adverse forces – no need for additional downtime or resource-intensive consultants.

It really is that easy.

Our patented SmartSkin drones use hundreds of surface sensors and internal sensors to precisely measure the sidewall pressure, shock, tilt, spin, and rotation that your containers experience on the production line.

Standard SmartSkin drones are available for vials, syringes, ampoules, and cartridges. Specialty drones include our latest Seal Force Drone for vials and cartridges, the Syringe Tip and Flange Drone, and Autoinjector Pen Drones.

At SmartSkin, we’re happy to support custom designs. Contact us if you have a unique format or packaging line challenge.

SmartSkin drones are built to travel on most areas of your production line: washing, filling, stoppering, capping, crimping, labelling, and warehouse handling. These wireless container replicas are durable and built to withstand the demands of the factory floor. In the unlikely scenario damage occurs to the sensors, you are covered by our warranty replacement guarantee.
