Vision-enabled barcode readers with the ease-of-use and cost of laser scanners
A pharmaceutical manufacturing plant has gone from indiscriminate spot checks on a fraction of their products to 100% automated vision inspection. Prior to the design of a system created by ARKK Engineering Co. featuring In-Sight® vision systems, the plant was only able to inspect a percentage of their bottles being processed using a standard handheld scanner. After integrating the new system into existing bottle lines, every single 2D data matrix code is inspected. This vastly improves quality control. The In-Sight system is checking these codes to assure appropriate content and high quality. In the future, if the manufacturing plant needs the systems to verify bottle caps and labels, In-Sight is capable of doing so.
