Barcode verification is essential to ensure barcode labels are legible at every point in the supply chain. Traditionally, manual checks were implemented to check quality at regular intervals. With the Logopak Vericoder these checks are carried out automatically to ISO or ANSI standards as part of the labelling process. Every label is automatically checked as it is printed.
The Vericoder replaces scientific instruments with an industrial-quality unit using technology licensed from verification experts Axicon. The system ensures controlled lighting, an absolute necessary requirement for verification, and removes the need for manual intervention, the system checks every label, ensuring 100% quality, thus avoiding the risk of substantial penalty fines from retailers.
Vericoder provides full evaluation of the barcode characteristics laid down by the ISO standards. It reads the black and white bars but then goes on to evaluate characteristics such as nominal/actual print contrast signal, light and dark reflectance, ration and magnification variation, check-sum analysis and metric deviations. From all this information, a quality grading is given, as well as diagnostic data for remedial action should a barcode fail to meet the minimum standard set.
