Inline code matcher verifies ‘right product, right packaging’

Inline code matcher verifies ‘right product, right packaging’


SICK has developed an integrated high-speed quality control system, the Inline Code Matcher, that ensures the right packaging is always used for the right product, avoiding the risk of wasteful rejects, safety issues or costly customer returns. The stand-alone system is easy to retrofit to existing packaging lines. The Inline Code Matcher works by matching 1D or 2D code data on products and packs, and automatically comparing them to the pre-assigned product packing list at high-production speeds. The modular system, based on SICK’s Lector 620 image-based code readers, can be easily configured for code validation across multi-lane packaging production lines in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. The Inline Code Matcher signals when mismatches of product, packaging, labels, outers or lids are detected. It helps ensure that a product packed into a multipack, tray, carton or case is correct for that outer, before the goods are dispatched.
