SquidCheck Print Validation System


Print Validation System

This system offers print and verification of the bar codes printed on your cases, trays, pipe, or other products and utilizes bar code readers from Cognex®, the world's most trusted machine vision and industrial bar code reading company. The reader is integrated with a Squid Ink printer and SquidCheck interface to ensure that codes are present, scannable, and accurate.

Identify & Eliminate Failures From Your Production Line

Allows users to automatically take control of your packaging line. Once a code is printed, the reader reads the code while SquidCheck communicates with the printer to confirm that the correct code is to be printed. Code failures are identified and rejected as desired while SquidCheck safeguards that only correct and properly coded products advance to the next stage of your production line.

Capture Performance Data From Every Code

Performance data is captured, stored, and can be transferred to your business systems for evaluation or enhanced visibility. Users can receive images and feedback of each and every code, or just the errors as desired.

Analyze Print Data & Make Improvements

Gather valuable data on reader and printer performance, and automatically catalogue each code. By analyzing data trends, users can identify issues due to poor printer setup or maintenance and help improve their overall coding performance.
