Independent in-line label verification
IVISYS Label Verification checks the exact version of each label on the production line. Based on the type of data verified, it eliminates the risk of wrong or missing labels. Ivisys Label Check operates at high camera resolutions and is capable of inspecting labels also when not perfectly aligned. This allows inspection of finer details on a higher variety of packaging.
3 Reasons Why
- Label verification optimized for a high variety of packaging
- Automatic data exchange with MIS further reducing the risk of human error
- Easy operation and detailed reporting to aid manufacturing
Here packaging labels are inspected in-line at a speed of 10 packages per second. The exact information to be verified is exchanged automatically with the MIS at the start of each production. This way the system is not depending on any user entry avoiding further potential sources of error.
The combination of a semi-rigid packaging with the labels glued on top can be a challenge to read due to position stability. However, the IVISYS Label Verification instantly compensates for image shifts and inspects each label with high reliability.
How it works
Placed above the production line, the camera takes high-resolution images of every packaging. A strobe light is used to achieve instant and sharp images. The analysis of the image verifies presence and information of the packaging. The system not only check if the text is there, it reads the exact text to make sure it also is readable.
The IVISYS Label Verification offers a combination of OCR and Barcode reading, both static and dynamically, with graphic features against the data supplied by the customers MIS. Furthermore, the ability to inspect a mix of these data allows the system perform verification with a very high probability.
The system compensates for the variation in position of each label. It therefore reads the essential information also when the labels or the packaging are not optimally aligned. In order also to handle the label position with odd series, the system offers the option of pointing on the data position manually on a monitor.
Finally, all of the found data are logged for the purpose of future documentation and production statistics.
Why should you automate your quality control?
Manual inspection of labels at high speed is impossible. Only an automatic system involving cameras can manage the speed and accuracy needed.
Quality inspection typically significantly reduces waste and hence increases profit. Incorrect labels mean loss of sales, costly repackaging or worst case even the destruction of the product.
Automatic inspection, on the other hand is a tireless, independent and objective, consistent and a fast method to achieve correct labelled packaging. On top of that, the verification is logged for further data processing or documenation.

Support and availability
Through an internet connection subject to the customer’s permissions, IVISYS can check, maintain and upgrade the system as needed. This allows IVISYS to act quickly should a situation need our attention.
IVISYS also offers the product with a designer mode software that enables the trained user to create new inspection jobs and change inspection parameters or even introduce new objects for inspection. Support and assistance in designer mode are also offered by IVISYS for this product.
