360° label inspection on pharmaceutical bottles
Case History Xyntek
The customer was asked by a pharmaceutical company to develop an inline vision system to verify labels on small plastic bottles at a rate of 60 ppm. The inspection required performing OCR to read the reference code, control or lot number on the label for Track and Trace purposes. Moreover, they had to verify that the label was applied correctly on the bottle: specifically the “double-label” issue was checked, that is when two labels were incorrectly applied to the bottle.
For customers that need an all-round inspection of quasi-cylindrical objects such as bottles and vials employed in the pharmaceutical industry, PC series by Opto Engineering allows to see the top and lateral surfaces avoiding complex and expensive multi-camera systems.
