AutoCoding Systems demonstrates 4Sight Automatic Print Inspection Solution on the SICK Stand – D64 - at the PPMA Total Show 2019

F Packaging Bad Read: Most of the code is illegible

ollowing the global partnership between AutoCoding Systems and SICK, the recently launched automatic

print inspection solution, 4Sight, will be demonstrated on the SICK stand at the forthcoming PPMA Total Show.

Visitors to the show at the NEC will be able to see how

the 4Sight application, shortlisted for a PPMA Award, communicates directly with any brand of printer, with no requirement to “teach” the camera what to look for. Unlike more traditional vision inspection techniques, no fixturing, such as an edge or logo, is needed; the software can automatically cope with variations in artwork, background and text location. The versatility of the solution means it can be set for varying levels of inspection, from print presence through to full OCR. The application offers full flexibility allowing users to determine acceptable print quality tolerances and define what is considered a good read, bad read or no read on a per product basis.

As all processing is undertaken onboard the SICK camera

Packaging Good Read: All characters have been located, are correct and legible

where the 4Sight software resides, no line-side PC is needed. There is a simple set-up process for camera position, set-up, focus, illumination and exposure time, with no requirement for operators to configure features or regions of interest. The software automatically adjusts to accommodate real- time message changes, such as date code and clock time.

PPMA visitors will also be able to see demonstrations

of AutoCoding's world class code deployment and packaging verification solution to reduce the risk of coding and packaging errors.

Packaging No Read: Some characters have been identified but part of the code is illegible
