OAL APRIL Eye vision system

Wednesday, 06 February, 2019 | Supplied by: OAL



OAL has launched an artificial intelligence-based vision system, APRIL Eye, for date code verification. The system removes the operator from the date code verification process, achieving full automation to reduce the risk of product recalls caused by human error on packaging lines.

By taking photos of each date code, the system can read them back using scanners to ensure they match the programmed date code for that product run, allowing food and beverage manufacturers to achieve unmanned operations and full traceability. Running at speeds of over 300 packs/min, it also allows them to increase throughput without compromising product safety. The production line comes to a complete stop if a date code doesn’t match, ensuring that no incorrect labels can be released into the supply chain.

The system uses basic cameras backed up with an artificial brain to deliver a vision system that can deal with variations such as lighting, positioning, print quality and placement inherent in a food or beverage plant, and read anything that is legible to the naked eye. It is designed to eliminate errors and protect both consumers and the brand, while reducing labour costs and waste.
