Raptor Label Inspector

Raptor Label Inspector

Inspects labels (top and bottom) for the presence of a correct product description, date code, lot numbers, allergen ID codes and barcode.

Description

Raptor is one of our newer systems, designed to eliminate emergency product withdrawals (EPW) associated with date and price coding errors, allergen labelling, and pot and lid marriage errors.

By automating processes and removing the need for human intervention, Raptor helps to drive increased efficiency, security and control of product quality.

Raptor will inspect each label (top and bottom) for the presence of a correct product description, date code, lot numbers, allergen ID codes and barcode and reject products without a product description, date code or barcode into a dedicated reject bin.

If connected to the optional SparcControl® database, the system will be sent the required product code and variable data and automatically set up. No operator input or machine adjustment is required for any product changeover.

The system has been designed, engineered, and constructed to the highest high care / food grade engineering standards.
