The increasing automation in the packaging industry is leading to an increase in requirements for visual product control. Many process steps were previously done by hand and all products were checked manually when packing products into boxes or transport containers by hand – these controls are no longer necessary with automated packaging solutions. Yet there is now a rising risk that products arrive on the market that do not meet the requirements and specifications of the retailers and consumers. Expensive recalls are unavoidable if mandatory information is missing on the packaging, such as the best-before date or even the entire label.
The „OI“ optical inspection is a flexible image-processing system for quality assurance that can be integrated into any automated production system. The inspection system enables single- or dual-sided film and label inspection, including presence and position checks, inspection of contents, inspection for damage and much more at a performance of up to 200 products per minute.
It guarantees 100% control of your production quantities. A manual sample control is no longer necessary.
A wide variety of interfaces to upstream and downstream line components, to data acquisition systems or to your enterprise resource planning system enable a high degree of automation as well as optimized data acquisition and evaluation.
