Omega Design: High-speed vision module syncs labels with bottles
Handling bottles 30-1500 milliliters in volume at speeds up to 300/min., Omega Design Corporation’s LabelSync 450 Vision Module captures and syncs a bottle’s unique serialized label with its individual line code.
Compatible with a wide range of serialization software and vision components, the LabelSync 450 verifies each code’s readability, confirms that each bottle belongs on the line (line security), establishes a one-to-one relationship between the two codes, and enables high-integrity identification processes downstream. The LabelSync 450’s vision system is comprised of four cameras whose combined viewpoints offer 360-degree label inspection, as well as a fifth camera to read secondary line code. The stainless steel module’s transfer belts are servo-controlled, and its height adjustment is quick and repeatable.
The LabelSync 450 can be equipped with its own print capability, so that it can print, inspect, and synchronize codes all in one footprint. It can print on the bottom of bottles, as well as on caps and topserts, enabling secure end-of-line aggregation. In the process, the module codes the bottles, verifies these codes’ readability and commissions the codes for tracking. Should a top or bottom code not be required at the unit level, the module also can be used to track loose bottles heading into a case packing station.
LabelSync 450 offers an integrated touch screen, and is easily connected to data management software. The module also can support the company’s DataSync as part of a broader Track & Trace and line security solution.
