Codes – Barcodes

A variety of barcodes are used in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food industries to identify packaging. The different barcodes pose different challenges for barcode inspection depending on the material being printed on and the coding.

Recommended system for barcode inspection

Ideally, simple barcode scanners are not used for the inspection of matrix codes, as they are less reliable in capturing the data. With intelligent cameras, data matrix barcodes can be read independently of the angle of rotation and also in motion. The reading head can be in a fixed position.

Depending on the system and the intended use, scanware offers simple 2D code reading or complete print image control. In addition, a range of solutions specially developed for Track & Trace in accordance with EU Directive 2011/62/EU is available.

Highlights of the code inspection system SIGNUM 2DC

  • Intuitive, user-oriented operation as well as guided learning run for a quick start of work on the line. In addition, no prior knowledge of coding is necessary, as the coding standards are integrated into the software.
  • Reading of the relevant areas enables very high reading speeds of up to 80 barcodes/second
  • Reading independent of rotational position at transport speeds of up to 6m/s
  • Different designs for precise integration into your system
    In case the barcodes are placed on a round object, the recommended solution is SIGNUM 1DC Tube Inspection
