|New Applications with a thermographic Camera|
scanware electronic GmbH is currently developing inspection solutions using a thermographic camera as a sensor. These can be used for the inspection of folding box flaps sealed with hot glue for tamper evidence purposes. Another possible application is the verification of fill levels of liquids.
As a pioneer in innovation, scanware always keeps an eye on new technical opportunities. Currently, uses for thermographic cameras are being tested. For Track & Trace purposes, EU regulation calls for tamper evident packaging on folding boxes. Since no particular implementation method is required, producers employ various. One of these is gluing folding boxes shut with hot glue. The correct position and amount of glue can be inspected with a thermographic camera.
Another application of interest concerns liquids. If a temperature difference between liquid and ampoule, bottle or vial occurs, the fill level can be detected by the thermographic camera.
