It inspects for open flaps on cartons, prints lot and date codes onto cartons, and provides visual verification of the printing. The module is self-contained, with printer and vision systems fully integrated. Compatible with all types and brands of printers--ink jet or laser--as well as with all vision systems. The control system is discrete and validatable for use in pharmaceutical applications. Module features a positive vacuum belt conveyor that provides a platform for non-contact printers. The base machine includes a high-powered air jet reject device, independent lockable reject bin, and HMI touch screen. Optional features include carton gapping rollers, segregated reject bins, and a pneumatic cylinder reject device.
