Trends and drivers for
machine vision technology
Machine vision is heating up, and here is how it’s impacting packaging:
1. When size goes down and power goes up, performance benefits. Due to miniaturization and advances in the power of digital signal processors (DSP), imaging sensors, and decoding algorithms, traceability applications such as ID code reading, text verification, label inspection, and mark quality assessment can now be accomplished more economically by inspection systems.

2. New requirements are driving new technology. Facing increased regulations in the coming years to fight counterfeiting and improve food and drug safety, major pharmaceutical and food manufacturers have put traceability at the top of their agenda. Most of them uniquely code each lot or batch to identify time and location of production to make recalls more efficient and less costly. But this is not sufficient to meet the increased regulations of the future that will involve traceability, serialization, and authentication requirements.
