VINSPEC HEALTHCARE OCR

Reliable, fully automated label reading / OCR

In the medical and pharmaceutical industries, correct labeling in accordance with legal regulations is essential. Mislabeled products or products with labels that are inaccurate or illegible must therefore not make it to market. A reliable and efficient 100% control is indispensable. With VINSPEC HEALTHCARE, VITRONIC offers a reliable and precise system solution of the highest quality.
When using optical character recognition (OCR), the system determines the contents of a label by extracting characters, letters or digits from certain image sections. In this regard, the camera-based machine vision system VINSPEC HEALTHCARE functions with even the broadest range of labeling procedures or under the toughest of conditions, e.g. in the case of reflective or bent surfaces and with low levels of contrast. GAMP-conformity for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries is naturally provided.
