The LVS-7510 integrates seamlessly into popular industrial printers such as Zebra ZT600 and Printronix T8000, and it can be used with off-line verifiers to construct an uninterrupted label design and production quality system.
The LVS-7510 helps manufacturers identify defects, control waste, reduce rework and avoid liability thanks to its bar code verification and validation features. The system can analyze any combination of 1D and 2D codes and verify them against internationally accepted standards such as those produced by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The software displays the overall ISO grade on a real-time graph so that operators can spot trends in print quality throughout a production run of hundreds of labels. The graph will change color as errors arise, and in when a critical error occurs, warnings such as light stack illumination, audible alarms and printer stop will occur. The bar code validation feature is much simpler than verification in that it only involves determining whether codes are “readable” and does not grade them according to a standard.
Working in tandem with verification and validation, a blemish detection feature offers extensive capabilities in master to label comparison and print fault identification. It can detect smears, skews, diecut errors, registration errors and missing information. It even offers a variable data function that prevents expected variations inside the pattern-matching area from being logged as blemishes.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Optical Character Verification (OCV) capabilities enhance the LVS-7510’s reporting capabilities and work to ensure that the human-readable information printed on a label matches the data contained in the associated machine-readable code, and that the alphanumeric characters are of the expected type. The number validation feature tracks the progress of a numerical series and verifies that it matches what’s expected. It also deletes duplicate numbers and any errors found in the sequence.
