INTRAVIS Intoduces IntraWatcher - Label Vision Inspection System
Press release date: January 15, 2013
IntraWatcher® PVLC, was designed for the quality control of labels on cylindrical unoriented containers. Cylindrical containers present a challenge for vision inspection as the orientation on conveyor belts cannot be guaranteed. INTRAVIS saw the need for a solution and developed this state-of-the-art vision inspection system.
How it works:
The IntraWatcher PVLC is equipped with an optical inspection module which provides a 360° view around cylindrical containers and creates a rollout image. The perspective is straightened by the image processing software and the image is then oriented and compared to a reference sample.
The system inspects each container for label presence, identity and position. The software is able to precisely measure the label offset and rotation. In addition it also detects printing errors, folds and bubbles. The IntraWatcher PVLC is capable of inspecting all types of labels, including pressure sensitive, injection molded (IML), and heat transfer labels.
Especially in the U.S. market, where cylindrical containers are the most widely-used packaging, this system offers a unique quality control tool. “We are very pleased to bring this level of inspection for cylindrical containers. Providing accurate inspection solutions were met with enthusiasm at PackExpo”, said Andreas Mueller, CEO at INTRAVIS Inc.
