Mark & Read Enables Real-Time Code Verification for More Applications

colos mark and readMarkem-Imaje, part of Dover (NYSE: DOV), launches the expansion of the CoLOS® Mark & Read camera and software system that helps manufacturers tailor code verification to best suit application needs and budget. As products go down production lines, users can choose to check code presence, readability and data accuracy on packaging.

Confirming that products are properly coded while on the production line – at the precise time they are printed – CoLOS® Mark & Read minimizes scrapped production and factory rework while preventing recalls. In each application, the level and type of verification required varies greatly. To better address this wide range of needs, Markem-Imaje has integrated three additional cameras within its Mark & Read code verification portfolio.

Cost-Effective Functionality, Configurable Cameras Tailored for Differing Needs:

An entry-level camera now exists for manufacturers who are looking to more accurately set up and automate coding jobs while simply confirming code presence on products.

Two mid-range cameras have also been added for basic Optical Character Recognition ("OCR") data verification of codes printed on flat surfaces with white or light-colored backgrounds at medium to high speeds, depending on the printer. Continual, on-line barcode quality scoring can also be provided. (click for more info)
