Three New Cameras Integrated Within Markem-Imaje's CoLOS Mark & Read System

Markem-Imaje recently integrated three new cameras within its CoLOS Mark & Read code verification portfolio in an effort to better serve a wide array of application needs.  The CoLOS Mark & Read software system and camera allows manufacturers to ensure proper coding, readability and data accuracy as products continue along the production line.

 
Ultimately, Mark & Read helps manufacturers prevent the possibility of recalled products while minimizing scrapped production and associated costs.  Because the level and type of verification necessary for products fluctuates greatly depending on each application, we added an entry-level camera and two mid-range cameras to the portfolio.
 
The entry-level camera is ideal for manufacturers who simply want to confirm the presence of codes on products while automating coding with an accurate set up.  The mid-range cameras are ideal for basic OCR data verification of codes printed at medium or high speeds on flat surfaces in which backgrounds are light-colored or white, allowing manufacturers to be notified of possible deviations of barcode print quality in real time.  This is vital for manufacturers to avoid continuation of sub-standard coding on many more products, saving time and money as action can be taken immediately to correct the problem.
 
Now with a total of four cameras in the CoLOS Mark & Read portfolio, solutions are available for a wider array of applications, even in environments that are highly demanding.  With full OCR (Optical Character Recognition) data verification, this update makes the system capable of handling code printing at high speeds in fast production environments, and printing of codes on surfaces that have complex backgrounds or are curved.
 
Software product manager Mark Hathaway said of the launch, "As with the release of CoLOS 6.0 last June, this launch is the latest proof of our long-standing commitment to improving coding performance for all of our customers - big and small."  He went on to say the launch further reinforces Markem-Imaje's market-leading positions as the one-stop shop for enduring code compliance and verification.
 
In addition to CoLOS Mark & Read, Markem-Imaje provides a wide range of industrial coding and marking solutions for many industries including food, beverage, pharmaceutical, dairy, confectionery and more.
