Dual camera print verification system

Dual Camera Print Verification System for leaflets:

A very efficiently designed system that contains two smart cameras from Topsenso,Germany. This system is used for the verification of the correctness of Pharma Leaflets / inserts and outserts. The cameras are installed on a leaflet folding machine. One camera verifies the upper surface while the other checks the lower surface of the leaflet. This system helps you to improve the quality of your output and makes sure that no major defects go undetected.

 

The camera is smart enough to read and verify the following:

  • Blank sheet / print presence.
  • A particular pattern / sequence of characters (Online Character Recognition).
  • Pharmacode with verification of its value.
  • 1 D Barcode with verification of its value.
  • 2 D Barcode (data matrix ) with verification of its value.

 

System Description:-

System consists of a large 15” / 12″  display with touch screen, 2 smart cameras and a control unit. One camera verifies the upper surface while the other camera verifies the lower surface of the leaflets. This system easily facilitates the user to set the parameters of the job, the cameras and also shows the images taken by the cameras.

The cameras are mounted on the machine in such a way that the horizontal movement of the cameras is very easy and the vertical adjustment of cameras or sensors required is minimal. This system comes with a simple to use and operator friendly GUI.
