Comprehensive label vision systems

SureLabel is a powerful and flexible inspection system designed for packaged products with unique labeling.  SureLabel inspects labels on all types and shapes of containers that are oriented at the point of inspection. Examples are ‘banjo’ containers, such as those used for salad dressings, ‘sqrounds’ used for ice cream packaging, pizza boxes, tubs, pouch style containers, and many more.

SureLabel primarily verifies that the correct labels have been properly applied to the container or that the expected pre-printed packaging has been used.  The number of cameras and inspections used is very flexible, which allows including other inspections along with the label verification.  For instance shrink-wrap tamperband inspections and foil lid perforation inspections can be seamlessly integrated.

SureLabel is delivered as fully-integrated turnkey hardware/software label vision systems that will ensure correct product presentation in the marketplace.  The system is a safeguard against potential recalls due to mislabeling and it will reduce rework time and processing headaches for production by catching problems early and in process.

SureLabel label vision systems are deployed directly on the packaging line and will detect:

  • Incorrect labeling
  • A missing label
  • A poorly applied label (location, skew, etc.)
  • When an incorrect carton, container, or lid has been used
  • Presence or legibility of printed expiration codes on packaging
