To OCV, or OCR: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler to use OCV (Optical Character Verification) to verify print, Or OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to decode a sea of print troubles. And by decoding will turmoil end? No more … Continue reading
Part 3 of a 3 part series on reducing downtime with vision sensors. In this last installment of this series, I will show some specific examples of how vision sensors have been used in packaging and show two case studies exemplifying the benefits customers achieved with the use of vision in their processes.

Part 2 of a 3 part series on reducing downtime with vision sensors. In this second part of vision sensors in packaging, I will specifically describe how vision is used to reduce planned and unplanned downtime and compare discrete versus the use of vision to achieve the same goals of error proofing a process and runtime improvement. Continue reading
One of the things I am often asked about is “why use machine vision in packaging”? There are many reasons, including dealing with the perceived complexity of serviceability and cost. I will show you where the use of vision in packaging can significantly decrease a major cost factor called “planned downtime”, along with other benefits in this 3 part blog series – so stay tuned for my later posts.
