The new product is a combination of hardware and software that automatically checks for the presence of printed code on consumer goods, according to a news release from the Wood Dale, Ill.-based company.
“Many customers implement standard procedures to manually check printed codes periodically during a production run,” Anthony Blencowe, business unit director for Videojet, said in the release. “Automatic code detection provides an additional level of coding confidence by inspecting every code, and can therefore deliver an earlier alert than would typically be provided using manual inspection processes,” he said in the release.
The system is ideal for flat packaging with a white or light marking window, according to the release, and allows manufacturers to easily inspect ink jet printed codes on their packaging. Using presence/absence detection, the equipment helps catch common printing issues including missing, incorrectly positioned and clipped codes, according to the release.
