Omron Microscan Offers Inspection System

RENTON, WA | Omron Microscan Systems announces the LVS-7510 inspection system, said to promotes accuracy and data integrity with 100% label inspection that won’t slow the printing process down one millisecond. 

Company says this verification product can analyze every label even at print rates reaching 254 mm/sec (10 in.). With 1D/2D barcode verification and validation, blemish detection, data and code matching, and numerous other features, the LVS-7510 is reported to be the ideal inspection system for consumer goods packaging, medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, specialty chemical manufacturing, and more.

Barcode verification and validation features help manufacturers identify defects, control waste, reduce rework, and avoid liability. The system can analyze any combination of 1D and 2D codes and verify them against internationally accepted standards such as those produced by the ISO. The software displays the overall ISO grade on a real-time graph so operators can spot trends in print quality throughout a production run of hundreds of labels. The graph will change color as errors arise, and when a critical error occurs, warnings such as light stack illumination, audible alarms, and printer stop will occur. Reportedly, the barcode validation feature is much simpler than verification in that it only involves determining whether codes are “readable” and does not grade them according to a standard.

Working in tandem with verification and validation, a blemish detection feature offers extensive capabilities in master to label comparison and print fault identification. It can detect smears, skews, die-cut errors, registration errors, and missing information. Also offers a variable data function that prevents expected variations inside the pattern-matching area from being logged as blemishes.

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Optical Character Verification (OCV) capabilities significantly enhance the LVS-7510’s reporting capabilities and work to ensure that the human-readable information printed on a label matches the data contained in the associated machine-readable code, and that the alphanumeric characters are of the expected type. The number validation feature tracks the progress of a numerical series and verifies that it matches what’s expected. It also deletes duplicate numbers and any errors found in the sequence.
