Quality under control – automatic barcode verification

No more discussions because of low-quality barcodes. The Vericoder allows Logopak to perform a fully automatic barcode check. Due to its integration into the labeling process, precise information on the barcode quality according to ISO/IEC can now be retrieved at any time.

The Vericoder reads all printed barcodes and checks them – in contrast to conventional barcode scanners – in terms of quality. The checked parameters include the print contrast signal, light/dark reflections, distribution, magnification and dimension. This information is used to calculate the quality level of the printed label. If it does not comply with the set minimum value, the system will send a diagnostics report. This makes it possible to quickly and easily initiate quality improvement measures.

This fully automatic method efficiently avoids discussions with customers on barcode quality.
