Product Barcode Verification System

Also called Material Verification System or MVS for short. Some of our customers have several hundred products with different packages. Some of the packages are so similar most people can't tell them apart. Reading and verifying the barcode is the best solution. We compare the production run with a database to confirm that the correct drum, film and cases are used.  If the system detects an incorrect barcode the system will shut down allowing the operator to correct the issue. Production data is then stored into SQL to provide valuable production reports.
