Mix-up control system, named Metascan 2D, is an industrial barcode scanner that, thanks to a flexible system, can avoid any type of mix-up on packaging processes.
Developed for being integrated on board packaging machines, Metascan 2D is a Mix-up control system, barcode scanner allows to check the identifying codes of packaging materials being used on different types of machines, such as:
Mix-up control system is essentially composed by a processing unit with integrated HMI touch screen, a number of barcode readers for 1D and 2D codes, and machine vision sensors integrated on board of the hosting machine.
Every packaging cycle is checked against possible mix-up or non-conformance of the packaging elements used in the process, mainly by verifying each identifying code on the packaging elements. Additional inspection can be done by verifying the position of a given printed pattern or against unprinted material (eg. unprinted inserts).
