Product Details Supplier Info More products

Stemmer Imaging has introduced Boa IDR, a tiny smart camera package capable of barcode, character and pattern identification or verification in a single self-contained unit. These core capabilities allow manufacturers in high-speed applications in the automotive, consumer, electronics, packaging and pharmaceutical industries to detect defects and track rejects, ensuring that all product markings are correct when they leave the factory floor.

Complete with embedded software and processing, Boa IDR allows manufacturers to combine 1D and 2D tracking with other inspection tasks. These include optical character reading (OCR) and feature verification to automatically identify, validate and verify markings or features on parts, products or assemblies.

1D and 2D capabilities include part validation and verification, part traceability and label validation in addition to 2D error proofing. OCR tools offer date, lot and product code validation, error proofing, printed text validation and label validation. Comprehensive pattern recognition facilities include label presence and placement, tamper-proofing pattern verification, cap presence and placement, printed text verification, error proofing and robot guidance.
