Label and Packaging Inspection
Correct printing errors and analyze no-read events to ensure readability throughout the supply chain
Manufacturers must diagnose and correct errors in the code marking process as they happen. This is essential for preventing machine assists and downtime and ensuring that codes can be read by other readers in the product distribution chain.
Cognex vision systems validate the presence, accuracy, and readability of codes applied to labels or marked directly onto products, flagging defects and those printed outside the field of view. Vision systems also verify a product’s contents match its label. In the case of no-read events, vision tools analyze archived images to reveal the underlying cause, whether it be low-contrast printing, faulty placement, or damage.
