Our online carton mix-up inspection system : Codemat

Production of Pharmaceutical , FMCG and Food Packaging cartons is a ‘Multi Stage’ process. Further,cartons of different products and make are manufactured at the same place. During this process, utmost care is taken to avoid mix-ups. But still , some errors may pass a mix-up carton. To check this , our system ‘ Codemat ’ helps you. Our camera based system is installed on a folder gluer machine, which is the last operation in the manufacturing process of cartons.

A unique code is designated to each product . This code is derived from the product name, company name, product strength, manufacturing place etc. This code is printed in the form of ‘Pharma code’ on the pasting flap of the carton.

While the cartons are running on the folder gluer machine, ‘ Codemat ’ reads and verifies this code. Any difference in the code generates an error signal. The defective carton is ejected if the machine is equipped with an ejector mechanism, else the machine is stopped.

The system has a specially designed graphic user interface which is simple to understand and use.
