Packaging systems are under strong demands to ensure the quality of primary, secondary and final packaging while at the same time maximizing production flow. Microscan’s barcode and machine vision products are commonly used throughout automated packaging applications to monitor, track and trace critical data to ensure quality while maximizing productivity.
Our products feature the latest barcode reading technology for decoding both linear barcodes and 2D symbols, such as Data Matrix. Specialty readers are available for tight spaces, high-speed reading and symbol reconstruction.
We offer a variety of off-line and in-line verification solutions that include camera, software and precision illumination specifically designed for the verification of 1D/2D codes to industry standards.
Microscan machine vision solutions provide precision product inspection to ensure products are traceable, accurate, safe and meet customer expectations. Our products include machine vision software, smart cameras, and in-line press and thermal print inspection systems.
Microscan products are engineered with specifications for a wide range of industry standards:
The FDA established a unique device identification (UDI) system to identify and trace medical devices throughout their distribution and use. As part of this mandate, labels on medical devices must contain a UDI code in human- and machine-readable form.
ISW GmbH, Microscan Vision Select Partner, designed a turnkey hardware/software solution for the pharmaceutical industry to specifically ensure accurate dimensions and fill levels of ampoules in production, using machine vision inspection with Microscan high-performance Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) cameras to replace error-prone manual quality control processes.
With compliance dates on the horizon for implementing UDI for new classes of medical devices, businesses must be proactive in ensuring standardized product serialization and update their labeling procedures at a rapid pace, or forfeit the right to participate legally in the marketplace. This whitepaper offers guidelines for simplifying each step toward UDI compliance and answers common questions about the FDA UDI rule.
