The labelling verification systems were required to:
- Verify whether a barcode label is readable and meets ANSI standards or not
- Determine whether the barcode label is straight or not
- Identify that the barcode label in question is intended for the product currently in production
The software was used with a Datalogic Matrix 2000 imaging system.
The labelling verification systems require that an operator selects the product to be run from a list or a barcode scanned from the work order.
The selected product then travels down the conveyer, where the labelling verification systems Matrix 2000 reads the barcode and transmits the information relating to barcode data, label angle and readability to the SolidVerify software.
It is here that the labelling verification systems determine whether the barcode label meets the correct specifications.
If this is not the case, the labelling verification systems will instruct the conveyer to stop, and the product is manually removed.
The new labelling verification systems enhance customer satisfaction as they ensure barcode labels are readable, correct and straight every time, which reduces the number of customer send backs.
Furthermore, the labelling verification systems reduce labour costs and enhance profitability.
