Label Verification System

December 6, 2011
TechSource_LabelVerif_body

Automatically inspecting labels on un-oriented packaging, the Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision Mosaic label and print identification inspection system confirms they are correct and match the product inside the package. The inspections include verification of the presence, quality and accuracy of date/lot/product codes, bar code and 2-D data matrix, label control number and graphical label ID. The system also ensures printed codes on the top or bottom of a container correspond with the label of the package. When a defect is detected, the system communicates with a downstream rejector to remove the faulty package from the production line before it can be case-packed. One print inspection camera and 6 label inspection cameras are included.
