A trend shared by all types of packaging lines is the rapid proliferation of vision systems. This is motivated on the one hand by attempts to combat counterfeiting and on the other by the extreme importance of quality control when working with food and pharmaceuticals.
PC-based and smart camera vision systems each have their advantages. Both types are seeing increased usage not just for final inspection, but at multiple points throughout the packaging process. Earlier detection of contamination and deviations dramatically improves the quality of the delivered products.
