Microscan Intros Packaging Traceability Solution
Packaging traceability system.
Renton, WA — Microscan has introduced the newest solution for inspecting and verifying package label content — the VS-1 Track and Trace, which combines the VS-1 Smart Camera and Visionscape® I-PAK® Software with a complete set of lighting, optics and other accessories. The system is optimized for inspection of glossy labels and allows the user to implement a flexible verification system with minimum of cost and effort.

Using a rugged IP67-rated smart camera and specialized integrated NERLITE® lighting, the VS-1 Track and Trace uses powerful machine vision tools to read barcodes, perform advanced Optical Character Recognition and Verification (OCR and OCV), inspect labels for misalignment and skew, plus a variety of other critical label and product inspections.

The system meets demanding requirements for reliable, accurate and easily validated packaging inspection, including demanding applications in electronics, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries.

Today's product packaging manufacturers must meet demanding requirements to ensure that date and lot codes and other data on package labels are correct in relation to the content of the package. This requirement applies in particular to pharmaceutical product packagers that are required by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to check the content and legibility of date and lot codes, and are bound by Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) to verify that pharmaceutical packaging is correctly formed — that all seals and closures are intact and packages are correctly assembled.
