Machine Vision Solutions for CIJ Print Inspection: Using Vision Tools to Ensure Accurate Text on Products and Packaging.

Explaining what is Continuous Inkjet (CIJ), and Optical Character Recognition (OCR), this paper lists out the challenges in high-speed CIJ printing such as illegibility or misinterpretation of data by machine vision OCR. Including examples highlighting the common print defects, it shows how collecting information regarding common defects on any given production line from quality managers and factory technicians can help in designing an OCR machine vision solution. Highlighting that simple pixel-based algorithms can solve the most common problems caused by CIJ print defects, it presents solutions that are divided into three primary groups: Pixel-Based Vision Tools; OCR Tools and Match String Input; and, OCR Tools with Custom Pass/Fail Logic. It concludes that understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each of the possible machine vision solutions for OCR, given herein, can help manufacturers to define the correct approach for their production line.
