Automatic Vision Inspection Solution for Product Traceability in Food & Beverage Industry

Introduction

As the market demand for the food safety, the traceability is getting more and more attention in the food and beverage industry as well as the packaging industry. Traceability is the ability to verify the history, location, or application of an item by means of documented recorded identification so that goods can be recalled based on the information of precise date/time and exact location.

 

System Requirements

One of the world's leading providers of beverage containers would like to identify the bar codes, characters and numbers on ink-jet printing labels at a 7 units per second run rate and above 99.9% correctness. Since there are not enough engineers to staff every the factory, the customer would like to implement a reliable system with ease-of-use graphical user interface.

System Description

Advantech provides the PC-based automated optical identification system with multiple cameras to identify the bar code, data code and characters on the beverage container. The system comprises the AIIS-1240, a 4-CH PoE compact vision system with Intel® Core™ i7 CPU; Inspector Express, graphical user interface machine vision software specifically designed to simplify the design and deployment of automated inspections on the factory floor; and QCAM-GM0640-120CE, a 0.3 Megapixel industrial camera, featuring PoE (Power over Ethernet) cabling to simplify deployment and maintenance.

Precise Inspection For High Speed Production Lines

Introduction

Awareness of food safety has increased in recent years, with consumers paying more attention to ingredients, places of origin, and other details when they purchase grocery items. Clear and accurate labeling applied to food products during processing helps consumers make informed choices and maintain peace of mind. The food industry has implemented automated production for many years, with well-evolved procedures for filling, labeling, and shipping. A current challenge for System Integrators involves helping assist food manufacturers with the rapid checking of trademarks and labels on existing, high-speed, automated production lines.

 

System Requirements

  • A platform with sufficient computing performance
  • Common interfaces for quick and easy integration of industrial cameras
  • The system must be compact, suitable for limited spaces
  • High reliability and durability, capable of high-speed operation for extended periods
  • Longevity support, including multi-year s
