Detection of Date and Lot Codes
By: SICK, Inc.
Reduce waste and product recalls with simple and efficient detection of date and lot codes.
The Inspector Vision Sensor from SICK is the low-cost alternative to complex and expensive vision systems when OCR is not needed. Checking the presence and readability of date codes or lot codes in food and beverage packaging applications helps ensure consumer confidence and avoid costly product recalls.
The Inspector offers integrated lighting and high-speed functionality. A NEW highly accurate pattern recognition tool enables accurate shape detection - even of individual characters. The sensor detects if the character is incorrectly printed or missing, in real time. A simple teach-in via an HMI can adapt for changing dates or codes.
