Microscan has released a model of its LVS-7510 Print Quality Inspection System as a fully-integrated solution within Printronix brand thermal label printers, the Printronix T8304 and Printronix T8308.
With the acquisition of label inspection systems manufacturer Label Vision Systems (LVS) in 2015, Microscan now offers the line of LVS precision machine vision solutions for label quality inspection, barcode verification, monitoring and analysis. These systems feature machine vision tools for evaluating the accuracy of all aspects of a label, including barcode reading to capture and validate encoded data, barcode verification to ensure compliance with ISO/IEC barcode quality standards for data legibility, optical character recognition for text validation, optical character verification for text quality, and variable data analysis for validating sequential data, such as serial numbers.
Now available as a fully-integrated solution within Printronix T8304 and T8308 thermal transfer printers, the LVS-7510 Print Quality Inspection System can verify any combination of linear, 2-D, or stacked codes to ISO/IEC 15415 or 15416 quality standards, including any orientation or number of codes on a single label.
In the LVS-7510 software, barcode quality is plainly displayed as a number or letter grade and is color-coded for quality level, while other label errors (such as improper data or label blemishes) are shown in a toggle window that emphasize the differences between a stored “master” label and the production label that is printed. Number validation allows the system to verify the expected order of any numerical data series, detect duplicates and sequence errors, and match variable numerical strings with externally-programmed data, ensuring accurate serialization.
