What is the purpose of vision inspection?
Pharmaceutics and medical technology
The packaging of pharmaceutical products must satisfy numerous legally prescribed criteria. A range of different packaging control applications are available to guarantee the compliance of the various types of packaging. It makes no difference whether it is the established pharmacode or a data matrix code. The safe exclusion of faulty products by means of reliable vision inspections is the top priority here. This also includes checking blisters for completeness and the ensuring the integrity of the contents by means of an efficient fill inspection.
Food and other FMCG
The tasks of vision inspection in the food industry range from checking the presence and position of fasteners, to the inspection of variable data, right through to integrity control and the inspection of a wide range of product features and properties.
Cosmetics and luxury goods
As well as being attractive, the packaging for cosmetic products also needs to give the impression of luxury and wellness. Trust in the brand is particularly important. Quality inspection represents brand protection in this case. Cosmetic packaging therefore often features points for the identification of codes by means of image-processing-based code control. Precise vision inspections guarantee the quality of the product and thereby protect the reputation of both the brand and the company.
