How Is It Done?
Label inspection is carried out at different points in the production process. In addition to pre-press inspections, there is also a final off-line and in-line inspection of the labels. During the off-line inspection, the approved print samples are compared with the printed label, for example during the incoming goods inspection, and in this way, errors are quickly detected and rectified. An in-line inspection takes place during the print process by comparing the entire print job with the approved customer template. This prevents complaints and possible recalls along the line. The position of the labels and whether there is any damage is also checked.
Why Is Label Inspection So Important?
With an efficient label inspection, errors and damages are detected early and thus later recall actions are avoided. Error-free labels are also of great importance for consumer health, for example when it comes to allergen information for food or the indication of the correct ingredients for medical products. Incorrectly labeled products can also occur when you change products in the production line: With EyeC's software solutions, you can detect these errors in the early stages of production and thus correct them quickly.
