Food Label Reading

Posted in 1D Barcode Reading, Featured, Food & Beverage, Inspection, OCR (Optical Character Recognition), Part Identification, Uncategorized

  The Challenge: Product information is printed directly onto the outer case of food products as they travel down a conveyor at a speed of 10m/min. The information contains a barcode, the product’s weight, best before dates and the price. All of the information needs to be read and checked against the database and weight sensors situated on the line. Information on the product type is contained within the code, which also needs to be checked. All data needs to be logged in a database located on the network for future traceability. Our Solution: A complete turnkey solution was provided to the customer to be able to read, verify and record the information contained in the printed information....

Pack Reading

Posted in 2D Datamatrix Reading, Direct Bright Field Illumination, Featured, Food & Beverage, Inspection, Lighting, OCR (Optical Character Recognition), Packaging, Uncategorized

The Challenge: Each pack has a label printed and applied to it and the 2D barcode and expiry date of each code needs to be read as the pack passes down a conveyor at a speed of 8m/min. The 2D code needs to be checked to ensure it contains the expiry date that is also printed on the pack. Information on the production / batch run is also contained within the code, this needs to be logged in a database located on the network for future trace ability. Our Solution: A complete turnkey solution was provided to the customer to be able to read, verify and record the information contained in each label....

Bread Inspection

Posted in Colour Inspection, Diffuse Dome Light, Featured, Flaw Detection, Food & Beverage, Inspection, Presence/Absence, Uncategorized

The Challenge: Our customer wanted to be able to check the colour of every loaf to ensure that the ‘bake time’ was correct. The loaves exit the oven in batches of 12 tins.  The customer wanted to introduce a ‘closed loop’ system whereby consistent under or over baking adjusted the conveyor speed through the oven in order to compensate accordingly. Our Solution: A high resolution, colour area scan camera was installed along with diffuse LED lighting. The colour of each loaf in the batch is analysed and based upon statistical trend analysis the control system PLC adjusts the line speed as required. Additionally, individual loafs which fall outside acceptable colour limits are rejected from the line downstream. If more than 5 consecutive loafs are rejected the camera sends an ’emergency’  signal to the PLC so that the operator knows there was a major problem on the...

Cap Alignment Inspection

Posted in Back Lighting, Colour Inspection, Diffuse Dome Light, Featured, Flaw Detection, Food & Beverage, Inspection, Precision Measurement, Presence/Absence, Uncategorized

The Challenge: After bottles exit the filling line, the lids are screwed on each one at rates of up to 100 bottles per minute. The vision system needed to be able to operate in a wash down environment (ideally at least a IP65 system) and for each bottle the checks it carries out need to include: – that there is a bottle cap present – that the bottle cap has been screwed on properly (ie completely screwed on correctly and not cross threaded) – that the bottle cap has no significant defects in it. The system needs to trigger a reject station and let the operator know that a defect has been detected. Our Solution: A self-contained IP67 rated, stainless steel vision inspection solution to check every bottle cap ‘on the fly’, at a rate of up to 120 bottles...
