Domino unveil new vision inspection systems
Domino Printing Sciences announced the launch of the R-Series, a new range of smart vision systems for automatic inspection and validation of product codes, including date codes, batch numbers, barcodes, and 2D-printed codes.
The R-Series was developed in consultation with customers following Domino’s acquisition of Lake Image Systems.
Specifically designed to work with Domino printers and coders, the R-Series eliminates the need for manual code validation and inspection, significantly reducing the risk of an incorrect code leaving a manufacturing site unnoticed, while allowing for more efficient use and distribution of resources.
“Coding errors pose a significant financial risk to manufacturers – and this goes much further than the risk of manufacturing waste and need to rework incorrect stock,” says Andy Barrett, Portfolio and Requirements Director, Domino.
“If left to enter the supply chain, an incorrect code can necessitate a product recall, which is not only costly in terms of logistics but can also damage the long-term value of a company.
“With the R-Series, we can offer our customers a range of integrated vision systems that automate the checking of every code, so that unidentified coding errors become a thing of the past.”
“The R-Series completes a closed-loop coding solution from Domino, also encompassing our trusted printing solutions and QuickDesign coding automation software,” says Craig Stobie, Global Sector Development Director, Domino.
“By partnering with Domino to validate their coding and marking systems, our customers can protect their operations from coding errors, reduce the risk of manufacturing waste, and increase overall equipment effectiveness and product yields.”
R-Series systems have been developed to work alongside Domino printers, integrating seamlessly into existing production lines without the need for custom brackets or specialist add-ons.
R-Series controllers can be run from a single human-machine interface and have a standard user interface with Domino ‘look and feel’, which is easy to learn and reduces the need for additional training.
The R-Series is available as three separate products, with bespoke options available. The top-level R550 is a complete code validation and verification solution, which validates the data for both human- and machine-readable codes, as well as checking for readability and code placement.
The mid-range R350, checks the readability of machine-readable codes, while the R150, a cost-efficient introductory option, offers simplified checking for code presence and placement.
