Datalogic, the automatic data capture and process automation solutions provider, has introduced the 11.11 IMPACT software release, designed to bring new functionalities to the MX-E and MX-U vision processors delivering the new Advanced OCR tool, an intuitive and easy to use vision tool for challenging Optical Character Recognition applications.
The advanced OCR tool is a powerful vision software tool able to read challenging alphanumeric strings printed over labels or directly marked (DPM) into industrial products. This new tool ensures robust and reliable reading of hard to read characters under difficult conditions, such as non-uniform background, variable light conditions, and curved surfaces. IMPACT Software 11.11 with Advanced OCR is the best solution for reading ink-jet printed dot matrix codes and embossed character (raised or lowered) on product surfaces. Advanced OCR is extremely intuitive featuring quick font and characters training and easy database management and string verification modes.
"OCR technology find applications in the Automotive, Electronics, Pharmaceuticals and Food & Beverage industries" explains Cosimo Capuzzello, General Manager Manufacturing Industry, Datalogic. "Government regulations, combined with public claim for safer products, have forced producers toward stringent tracking requirements and many of them, in the attempt to provide transparency at all levels of the supply chain, are turning to OCR technology. Supported by MX-E and MX-U vision processors, Advanced OCR by Datalogic allows users to create an OCR inspection in a few steps. With Advanced OCR the 11.11 IMPACT software release guarantee unmatchable product identification and coding, which in turn enhances the traceability of Automotive mechanical parts and components, as well as the quality and safety in the Food & Beverage packaging processes."
