The latest addition to the METTLER TOLEDO CI-Vision portfolio is the newly developed Label Check Station (LCS), which prints and verifies high-quality, product-specific labels at a rate of up to 500 per minute. The LCS integrates into existing production lines and is also available as a compact table-top solution.
The system combines a printing module with a high-resolution camera and a reject system for faulty labels. The printing module contains a thermal transfer printer, which applies high-contrast ink to every label, ensuring mandatory information such as the use-by date, provenance, list of ingredients, allergens and more is communicated to the customer. Once the labels are printed, a high-resolution camera checks them for quality factors such as legibility and completeness, which allows manufacturers to determine any deviations from the specified quality.
The LCS also processes a multitude of different label formats and automatically adjusts to the current line speed as necessary, thus preventing incorrect or illegible labels from getting into circulation.
The robust housing, which has a steel-tube frame, protects all components from dust and contamination and has two large doors to provide easy access for cleaning and maintenance work.
