Vision solves complex packaging inspection for healthcare company
24 August 2012Tweet
Italian packaging machine specialist, Marchesini, together with vision systems integrator, Olmec-UK, have developed a vision system to solve a complex packaging inspection problem for a customer in the healthcare industry.
The Marchesini Group was commissioned to build a cartoning machine for a leading supplier of healthcare products in the UK that required a number of different contents to be included in the final package. One of these components was produced by a third party, already packaged in its own plastic packet, and the system needed to verify that this component was the correct one to accompany the product in the carton as well as being checked for defects.
Marchesini’s UK sales manager, Andy Long, said: ‘We were impressed not only with Olmec’s vision expertise which allowed them to come up with an innovative solution to the inspection challenge, but also their understanding of how to integrate the system into our machine. We worked very closely together, and Olmec were happy to send engineers to Italy to work with us on the successful testing and commissioning of the final system.’
