Code Validation

A machine vision solution for code inspection is a complete in-line solution that verifies code presence, position and formation, and, where necessary, enables full code reading and matching. The system will automatically identify and reject containers or packages with missing, incorrect or unreadable codes to ensure only properly coded items reach customers.

  • Date Code Verification: verifies that a use-by date or a best before date is present and is completely formed in the correct location.

  • Batch Code Verification: ensures the quality of the printed batch information, thereby preventing customer consumption of expired products and reducing the likelihood of product recalls.

  • Bar Code Verification: verifies that bar codes are readable and correct, enabling proper product tracking through the supply chain and for recalls. Cameras today can grade barcodes based on GS1 standards for continuous barcode quality control.

  • 2D Data Matrix Validation: verifies that information which is not human readable is still valid, and can be properly decoded and understood by the quality system to enable proper product tracking through the supply chain and for recalls.

  • QR code verification & validation: checks the QR code is in the correct position and is readable. 

When integrated with Matthews iDSnet, the solution can not only check code presence and formation, but can also verify if it is the right code, thereby eliminating any coding errors.

Industries

Non-Alc-Beverage
Beverage
Ensure your beverages are filled correctly, with the right cap and fit, the labelling and coding is correct and the bottles are undamaged. X-ray and metal detection will ensure your products meet food and grocery retailer requirements.
Dairy
Dairy
Quality is extremely important due to dairy’s perishable nature. Vision systems, X-ray and metal detection can verify many product aspects on-line. Checkweighing systems ensure the correct-weight products always leave your factory doors.
Food-and-Grocery
Food and Grocery
Vision systems are used to ensure the presence and correctness of these codes, and to generally ensure that product is “shelf ready” to meet retailer requirements and customers’ expectations.
Pharmeutical
Pharmaceutical & Medical
Quality control is critical to pharma-medical, which has strict guidelines and standards for products. Vision inspection, X-ray and metal detection solutions can ensure products meet these protocols, hence retailer and customers expectations.
Wine
Wine
Presentation and quality are crucial for alcoholic beverages and wine — machine vision inspection, X-ray and metal detection can all help ensure product excellence.
