Domino expands portfolio with new smart vision systems to check product code accuracy

May 17, 2021

A Cambridge company is helping its customers to reduce risk and optimise productivity with the launch of state-of-the-art technology which can check product codes automatically and eliminate potential and costly errors.

Domino Printing is introducing the R-Series, a range of smart vision systems which can check a wide range of codes used by manufacturers across a broad spectrum of industries, including dates, batch numbers, barcodes and 2D-printed codes.

The launch follows Domino’s acquisition of Lake Image Systems, a market-leading producer of automated vision-based inspection systems, last year.

Specifically designed to work on production lines with Domino printers and coders, the R-Series eliminates the need for manual code validation and inspection, significantly reducing the risk of an incorrect code leaving a manufacturing site unnoticed.

Andy Barrett, Portfolio and Requirements Director at Domino said: “Coding errors pose a significant financial risk to manufacturers – and this goes much further than the risk of manufacturing waste and need to rework incorrect stock. If left to enter the supply chain, an incorrect code can necessitate a product recall, which is not only costly in terms of logistics but can also damage the long-term value of a company.

“With the R-Series, we can offer our customers a range of integrated vision systems that automate the checking of every code, so that unidentified coding errors become a thing of the past.”

The launch highlights Domino’s ongoing commitment to ‘Do more’ to help customers improve production efficiency and reduce manufacturing waste by delivering ‘best-in-class’ customer experience through products, services, and expertise.
