Increase Supply Chain Traceability with Edge Learning-based OCR
INCREASE SUPPLY CHAIN TRACEABILITY WITH EDGE LEARNING-BASED OCR TECHNOLOGY
Food and beverage containers, such as soup cans, use alphanumeric codes to display lot codes and expiration dates. These codes, which are often printed using a dot-matrix ink jet method, can become degraded because of the manufacturing process or are challenging to read due to uneven surfaces.
Cognex 2D vision systems with edge learning-based OCR accurately read alphanumeric codes on fast-moving production lines.
The embedded ViDi EL Read tool deciphers a variety of text and font types using advanced optical character recognition (OCR). It reads multi-line text, as well as characters against challenging backgrounds, including reflective, low-contrast, and non-flat surfaces.
The tool can also be quickly retrained to handle new text and accommodate process variations. With minimal training required, the tool simplifies job setup and delivers fast, accurate character reading.
