2D barcode label was applied to the end of a syringe. Labels that are wrong or placement is out of specifications need to be rejected.
Cognex Smart camera was added to an existing label applicator machine. The syringe was rotated and 4 images were acquired. The 2D matrix on the barcode was verified against the SKU read in from the PLC. The label position was gauged relative to the tip of the syringe and all 4 images were used to calculate the label skew.
Catheters are placed into a vaccuum-formed pouch and then sealed to Tyvek. A CAPA event required automated inspection of catheter packaging inspection to ensure no portion of the catheter made it past the seal.
Multiple images were rapidly acquired as the product indexed past the sealing process and the seal zones were analyzed with a Cognex Smart Camera.
