An important feature of food is the best before date. It must be present on every packaging. The detection system should not only detect the existence of the date, it also should detect the correct contents and good readable.
The used character detection in our system allows a reliable detection of a variety of product data. For example production date, best-before date, article number, load date etc. It doesn´t matter if these are in block letters or dot (matrix) codes, inkjet or laser method. Several character sets can be taught-in and stored. In case of format change, the corresponding character set will be selected automatically and the necessary adjustment parameter will be activated. Among other things the detection quality can be adjusted. The required print can be released or generated automatically. The system is able to inspect prints which need more than one line.
The integrated industrial image processing allows a flexible and safe detection of signs (letters, numbers, special characters) also under difficult print conditions.
Mode of Operation
To receive an exact picture and a reproducible position of the print, the camera and light module will be installed directly behind the printer. At the moment of inspection the packaging has to be arranged. Of course, beside the exact OCR-reading a visual check-up of the upcoming print can take place (OCV). The print quality of the different areas of the label can be checked with OCV-technique. The user surface is displayed on simple operation and compatible to Windows.
