The roadshow truck from MULTIVAC Marking & Inspection is back on the road: As with previous years, customers in Germany and other European countries can learn all about MULTIVAC’s innovative labelling and inspection solutions at their own door and without any effort whatsoever. This time the focus is on visual pack, label and print inspection in the food industry. The roadshow starts from February, and it reflects MULTIVAC’s claim to be a global company that remains consciously local to its customers.
Automatic camera inspection will be demonstrated in MULTIVAC’s truck with the company’s proven I 410 vision system. This inspection solution, which is independent of the packaging machine and labelling or marking system, is installed on a separate transport conveyor, and it is ideal for retrofitting to existing thermoforming packaging lines. It can also however be added to one- or two-track traysealer lines. The vision system is controlled via the user-friendly MULTIVAC HMI. As an alternative, the camera inspection systems can also be integrated into a thermoforming packaging machines or labelling system, and operated via their HMI user interface. They ensure that, even at high process speeds, every individual pack is reliably inspected against a wide range of features according to the particular demands of the product and pack. Inspection is performed by a line scanner from above and below. One of the most common inspection tasks is checking, whether the correct labels have been applied to the pack, and whether they are precisely positioned. Or whether the product code, use-by date and batch number are correct and legible.
In addition to this, the roadshow truck also includes some test apparatus, used to give a visual presentation of the opportunities for quality control with MULTIVAC’s luminescence and colour sensors as well as area scan cameras. For more visit multivac.com
