Microscan to Demonstrate ID & Inspection Solutions for Today’s Packaging Challenges at Pack Expo 2013

POSTED 08/28/2013

roscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, and lighting solutions, announces that it will showcase its latest identification and inspection solutions for product traceability and quality compliance in Booth #S-7455 at Pack Expo 2013, taking place in the Las Vegas Convention Center, September 23-25. The company will demonstrate how its barcode readers and smart cameras can be incorporated into packaging lines and machinery to monitor, track, and record critical data on products, labels, and secondary packaging.

Manufacturers need to detect mislabeled products, mismatched packaging containers, poorly printed text, and unreadable barcodes early in the process, allowing for corrective action before products make it into the supply chain. Microscan’s AutoVISION™ machine vision will highlighted during in-booth product demonstrations. The product line, which includes the Vision MINI and Vision HAWK smart cameras along with the AutoVISION™ machine vision software interface, was developed to simplify the setup and deployment of machine vision applications. The intuitive software incorporates high-performance features such as barcode quality verification; decode tools for 1D and 2D barcodes; OCR and OCV; automated job changeover; and Microscan Link for one-click connectivity to PLCs and other control systems.

Also on display at Pack Expo will be Microscan’s broad range of advanced data collection products including laser barcode scanners, 2D imagers, 1D/2D scan engines, handheld readers, and vision smart cameras excelling in applications from basic barcode reading to complex machine vision inspection, identification and measurement. With more than 30 years of proven performance, Microscan remains committed to continuous innovation and development to help manufacturers ensure the quality of packaging while at the same time maximizing production flow.
