Packaging Quality Assurance

Vision solutions inspect products to verify that the packaging process was completed to the exacting standards and specifications set by the manufacturer.

  • Label verification: checks if the label matches the pattern, front and back labels match, the bar code on the label is the right one and the right design elements are on the labels

  • Match components and elements: matches the cap to a design element on the label or matches decoration to other elements, such as bar code

  • Seals and tampers: ensures products are properly sealed to eliminate spoilage, leakage and contamination so a high quality product reaches the customer.

  • Full package inspection: checks the product to inspect multiple elements are present

  • Case quality inspection: verifies that cases are properly formed and sealed, and are otherwise undamaged, to allow fast and reliable palletising and packing.

  • Product content verification: confirms that the specified contents of a kit are present, thereby demonstrating due diligence and reducing the costs associated with missing or additional components.

When integrated with iDSnet Enterprise, vision inspection solutions can not only identify the products that do not meet the standards, but these can also be redirected to a reject station and the numbers recorded for quality metrics.

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.
Trnsportation
Industrial Applications
Light manufacturing right through to heavy industry can benefit from using vision solutions, X-ray and metal detection.
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.
