2D Matrix Code Inspection System

Verify Correct Labels Using 2D Matrix Codes

Labeling errors on high speed lines can easily result in hundreds or thousands of mislabeled containers. Prevent high scrap rates, retailer rejections, customer returns and even potential recalls caused by mislabeled and mis-matched labels on your products.

Our EPIC 2D Matrix Inspection System uses 2D matrix codes already present on your labels to inspect for: 

  • Mismatching front and back labels 
  • Mismatch label to product “recipe” running on the line 
  • Misplaced labels – ensuring correct label placement and skew/angle of the label

Our system comes plug-and-play, ready to inspect your products at 99.9% accuracy.

  • Suitable for

    Any round or square container or package with artwork (brand-specific or recipe-specific) and 2D barcode, (less than 6.5” diameter).**

    NOTE: Parts must be oriented, OR have adequate gap to see 360 degrees around the product

  • Line Speeds

    Maximum speed of 500 parts per minute

  • System Highlights
