The standard SparcEye system has been designed with this very much in mind, offering full compliance with all current COPs for labelling and coding. Recognising that these codes can change to reflect emerging market trends, SparcEye is also fully configurable to accommodate such changes, thereby offering in-built future-proofing.

ADDITIONAL PRODUCT INFORMATION

Sparc Systems SparcEye Label Inspection Solutions

SparcEye is an inspection system designed to provide fail-safe label and print verification on packaging.  Offering a capacity of up to 200 packs per minute, depending on the dimensions of the product (up to a maximum pack size of 300mm x 300mm x 100mm), it verifies every pack continuously, automatically checking that the pack data is correct.  This means that on-pack information such as the date code, the 1D or 2D barcode, label/product ID and any over-printed data is correct and matches the barcode and label ID held in a database.  In addition, once the database is successfully matched, the system automatically sets up the correct label verification, checkweigher, metal detector or x-ray and the date coder programs, to ensure every production run is set up correctly. 

Having checked that all labels are present in the first place, it also identifies if they are in the right position.  It does this through dedicated top and bottom cameras which are 100% enclosed, thereby ensuring they are fully protected from any water or packaging debris, while also preventing any interference of the imaging through fingerprints on the lenses or lights. All machines can be networked to provide individual line, department and full factory reporting and control for detection, inspection and verification of all packs produced.
