A Mark & Read automated Cognex camera and Markem-Imaje printer verification solution together have helped companies confirm the right code is correctly printed on packs. This system reduces unnecessary waste and helps ensure non-coding related recalls run smoothly.
Both companies are deepening their existing partnership to develop the next generation of Mark & Read applications for global FMCG companies. Their R&D and commercial teams will be working more closely together to integrate printing and reading solutions in the future. They will collaborate at regional and global levels on opportunities and projects in the packaging market.
This unity will ensure products work seamlessly to provide quicker and more accurate code verification. Manufacturers will also benefit from a more intuitive user experience, from setup to full-production.
‘We are excited to combine our Mark & Read solution and proven Cognex’s vision solution,’ says Vincent Vanderpoel, CEO of Markem-Imaje.
This combination will allow both companies to capitalise on their major customer references. It will also help them minimise rework due to missing or unreadable text and barcodes and reduce waste from using incorrect data in printed messages.
‘The system will assist in avoiding scrapped product due to incorrect packaging materials used on the production line,’ adds Vanderpoel.
Robert Willett, CEO of Cognex, says new capabilities are being built to improve global standards for printing product quality.
