Code Inspection

Vericode Plus is an advanced Vision System which combines 1D/2D/OCR/OCV  decoding of variable data with print quality inspection in one high performance inspection system. Vericode Plus can be supplied with different configurations able to cope with any print processes, from single label print inspection to large scale, fast digital printing on narrow web processes.

Any combination of alphanumeric strings and 1D/2D codes are decoded and verified in real-time against the expected data, available on a database or fixed during the batch run. Decoding is combined with print quality inspection (ink in excess or missing, tone mismatch, blurs, streaks, smears, foreign ink/graphics and so forth), on print areas with a static content.

In case of verification against a database (option available for serialized  productions) Vericode Plus includes data reconciliation procedures that can be customized according to the specific printing or converting process in order to guarantee secured serialized production batches.

Software Code Inspection Metapack

software code inspection

Vericode Plus system is equipped with a powerful multi-thread software code inspection. Our software is able to decode variable data and inspect the print quality with advanced features optimized for a simple and efficient use of the system. Our solutions are based on scalable and multi-core parallel processing. Thanks to them, control of digital printing of variable data is carried out with the utmost precision at the highest speed range required by the most advanced digital printing processes.

Decoding variable data, Application fields

  • Narrow or wide web digital print processes with data changing over print repeats
  • Late stage customization of packaging materials
  • In-line or off-line variable data inspection for packaging processes
  • Invoice, bank notes, lottery tickets, security labels, documents, and security printing.

Reel vision print system

Metapack supplies Roll-to-Roll and Near-Line machines to print variable data on all kind of labels. Our range of label print machines integrates print vision system to guarantee print quality inspection. The reel vision print system is a key element for on-line and off-line machines.

Metapack develops machines for variable data printing on labels with one or two printing and print vision systems. This solution allows to print at very high speed on a larger print area. The reel vision print system is integrated on board the machine to guarantee print quality inspection.
