Advantages of scanware Code Inspections

All scanware systems are based on the same operating structure. This offers a high level of safety thanks to user-oriented operation, guided learning and precise software that enables the user to implement inspection and improve productivity even without prior knowledge of various codes. The relearn function allows the operator to quickly and easily monitor the packaging process.

Based on the QNX® real-time operating system, the algorithms work breathtakingly fast and offer a variety of parameters that optimally support your inspection task. And with the in-house developed user interface, both teach-in and operation are intuitive and of course fully 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.

The high speed, integrated illumination and outstanding software make the systems the best of their kind.



OCR/OCV system SIGNUM HR can be used on pouch machines as well as for recognition of print on tablets
Copy function for fast character teach-in and error analysis in format testing
Format-free and feature-based, i.e. a character library is taught-in during installation, which calculates a virtual character from all read-in, correct characters for the fastest possible evaluation.
Thanks to real colour detection instead of a smart camera, the SIGNUM CL ring code inspection offers maximum security and a convenient circumference of software functions such as different colour settings for inspection of label and colour rings in the same step.


Inspection criteria

Ampoules: Number of colour rings, ring colours, sequence of rings, ring widths, ring distances
Vials: inspection of presence and colour of cap
Parallel to this in each case presence and colour of the label in one step
