CircumSpect® Overview

CircumSpect is a turnkey product and label verification system that can accurately verify product labels or pre-printed packages on three-dimensional randomly oriented products such as jars, bottles, and vials. The turnkey label and package inspection system sits atop a conveyance system and offers 360 degree non-contact inspection on the part passing through the imaging station. The image station uses multiple digital cameras to capture different images of the part that are then stitched together into one unwrapped image. Vision tools are then applied to verify inspection criteria and pass or fail the part. Passed parts continue on down the conveyor while failed parts are removed from the conveyor by a rejector. CircumSpect is a field-proven, unique option in addressing important manufacturing and process issues in:

  • Consumer Product Safety
    • Allergen prevention
    • Reduced liability
  • Consumer Satisfaction
    • Mislabeled product
  • Distribution Channel Satisfaction
    • Mislabeled product
    • Return credits
    • Pallet returns
    • Quarantines
