Label verification is a standard in-line process control application for a vision system.
Depending on the production speed and the dimensions of the label a matching vision system is selected. The vision solutions are employed to verify labels for a wide array of requirements, including presence check, print quality inspection, barcode verification, OCR inspection, surface defects, data matrix inspection, label counting, label placement.
To secure that the labels are correctly applied and printed with perfect quality a vision system is used. The product is a battery where numerous different designs of labels are used. The label is checked for presence, print quality, OCR inspection and label placement. The typical speeds of manual inspections are approximately 30-40 products per minute. Our automated systems return results on real-time inspections of up to 300 products per minute, as part of a standard application.
The vision system checks that the correct labels have been applied to the product and the absolute position of the sleeve is guaranteed. OCV and vision tools are used to check all essential pre-printed and over-printed data such as barcodes, dates, lot codes and article codes are correct and legible. The benefits of this vision installation are to avoid label mix ups, to ensure the data is correct and legible, to reduce risk of product recall, to prevent poor quality barcodes and to electronically file inspection results.
One of the most common inspections in pharmaceutical packaging is that of print and text inspection and verification on products and packaging. Typical applications inspect for and verify: Lot & date code; batch code; OCV and OCR codes; 1D&2D barcodes; vial integrity; fill level; bag seal; vial counting; label inspection; packaging; IFU leaflets; pack confirmation.
Our company implemented a 100% inspection system in collaboration with VistaLink to detect and prevent defects at customer level and to meet their quality standards. The system was able to check parts quality with more than 15 quality criteria on a total production of 275 Million units per year. Despite the complexity of the project itself, the system was successfully implemented in more than 20 manufacturing lines and the quality delivered to our customers increased enormously. It helped us to prevent defects and to improve our process.
A relationship of trust based on the perfect mastery and performance of the installed equipment, competent contacts, available and sensitive to the optimization of existing solutions
With the development of our white stock system, VistaLink delivered a state-of-the-art solution 15 years ago to prevent product mixup. Since then VistaLink is our partner for our most challenging vision projects.
When nobody else solves my vision needs, I turn to VistaLink for help. And they never let me down.
