Ossid, a division of Pro Mach has announced the launch of its new TVS 1000 label and barcode validation machine, which has the capability to read 21 different barcode symbologies including 2D.
Designed to ensure that package contents, labels and barcodes are well matched, the new stainless-steel TVS 1000 scans a bag or tray for both the presence and proper placement of the label.
Post scanning, the barcode readability will be checked by the machine, which will then validate the correct bar code for the contents of the package and pushes off the line the packages that do not meet specifications.
According to the US-based company, the TVS 1000 collects production data on the number of packages passing through the system and also the positive and negative reads. It will also help improve the quality of meat, poultry, dairy, seafood, and produce operations.
Ossid product manager Mike Alyounes said the machine inspects 100% of labeling and printing to ensure the right label and readable barcode is attached to the right product.
"Accurate labeling helps to lower returns and improve customer satisfaction. It also helps to ensure that those with food allergies have the correct ingredients information, and that is an immense positive for everyone concerned," Alyounes said.
For versatility, the Ossid TVS 1000 automatically adjusts to different packaging sizes, Ossid said.
