Label inspection solution offers all-in-one quality control

07 April 2018

SICK has launched the LabelChecker, an ‘off-the-shelf’ label inspection solution with the ability to read and verify text, numbers, bar codes and 2D codes, as well as checking label design and print quality. 

Based on its InspectorP vision sensor, the all-in-one solution is said to be the first to be developed using SICK’s AppSpace programming environment.

LabelChecker is now available to any end user, system integrator or machine builder as a label quality control solution that is ready-to-use and simple-to-adapt. The device can be configured and set up via a web server interface without specialist programming and additional software licenses are not necessary.

The SICK LabelChecker is a based on the SICK InspectorP vision camera, providing an integral quality control system in a stand-alone compact device without the need for an additional evaluation unit. It has been proven on several different production lines at high speed.

The LabelChecker can be set up to recognise and switch between different label types, with custom settings for each type. Its capabilities encompass Optical Character Recognition and Optical Character Verification in multiple regions and lines, including overlapping characters, as well as dot matrix printed and indented (peened) text. In addition, many standard types of 1D and 2D code can be read and verified including multiple codes in one image and comparison with alphanumeric print.

The SICK LabelChecker checks for correct label and content. It sends a warning when the label print quality drops below a set value. It can also verify correct label design contents by comparison with pre-learned label images, as well as verifying if the print is correct and complete. It will also compile quality control data.
