Label & Print Inspection and Detection
Label and Print Quality Inspection
Label-related defects are the most common cause of product recalls, and also happen to be the most preventable. Once a product is on a retailer's shelf, labels are a manufacturer's only line of communication with the consumer, so the label needs to be complete and properly located. A label that is correctly positioned without rips, folds or other imperfections helps improve a product's first impression - and can mean all the difference between a sale and a missed opportunity.
METTLER TOLEDO vision inspection systems perform label inspection across a variety of different packaging types, providing assurance that labels are always present, correct and looking their best when they leave production facilities.
An out-of-place label can negatively affect consumer confidence in the quality of a product. In particular, premium items fail to communicate superior product quality when labels are not in their proper positions. METTLER TOLEDO's label inspection systems plot the position of labels along both the x and y axis, even on un-oriented products, and rejects products with damaged, skewed or missing labels.
Label Quality Inspection
It takes great time and effort to create a compelling label design that will catch the eye of consumers, as well as communicating the qualities of a product and adhering to labeling regulations for a given country and industry. When a label is dispatched to retailers with folds, tears, or flagged edges, it undermines the effectiveness of the label design and wastes the effort taken to create an effective label. METTLER TOLEDO vision systems ensure label quality to keep labels pristine and effective.
Every product changeover carries the risk of a mislabeling error. By using a vision inspection system to perform graphical identification inspections, mislabeling errors are caught as soon as the first mislabeled product comes down the line, reducing the chance of a recall.
Powerful Control Software, Intuitive Interface
Without the right control software, even the best system will under-perform. Fortunately, METTLER TOLEDO has built the best available software in its CIVCore platform, providing an intuitive interface for first-time operators. The interface makes changing between product profiles fast and easy, enabling rapid product changeovers. In addition, its granular administrative settings allow for the creation of multi-level user accounts.
