Every product changeover carries the risk of a mislabelling error. The use of a vision inspection system to perform graphical identification inspection processes means incorrectly labelled products are identified early in the production process, reducing the chances of expensive recalls.
High-speed modern production lines mean that missing, misaligned or damaged label issues need to be identified and corrected as soon as possible to avoid waste or the need to re-work. HD cameras, powerful IPCs and sophisticated software algorithms will detect even the smallest skew or slightest damage to any label enabling the product to be removed from the production process.
Compelling label design will catch the eye of consumers as well as communicate the brand qualities of a product. Inspection and verification to confirm that the correct graphical elements of the label are in place need to be carried out. 1D and 2D barcodes need to be machine and human readable to adhere to stock management system standards.
It takes great time and effort to create a compelling label design that will catch the eye of consumers, as well as communicating the qualities of a product and adhering to labelling regulations for a given country and industry. When a label is dispatched to retailers with folds, tears, or flagged edges, it undermines the effectiveness of the label design and wastes the effort taken to create it. A label that is correctly positioned without imperfections helps improve a product's first impression.
Malfunctioning label applicators will cause a label to be applied incorrectly. Label inspection systems plot the position of labels along both the x and y axis, even on un-oriented products, and reject products with damaged, skewed or missing labels. Due to the very high speed of many labelling applications, any misalignment needs to be detected as soon as possible.
Other standard vision inspections include: Closure presence, closure height and position (cocked cap), tamper band presence and integrity, container contamination, sealing surface integrity, neck thread formation, flashing and container integrity.
