The LabelWatcher is your customized inspection solution for the quality control of decoration and labeling applied on any kind of plastic packaging.

Your turnkey solution for the inspection of labels

The LabelWatcher inspects labels on plastic packaging such as bottles, jars, cans and containers for a huge range of inspection criteria. Even at high speed – at up to 50 objects per second – a full label evaluation is possible. The vision system can be integrated into your linear or rotary labeling machine or as a stand-alone solution behind the labeler.

The software is user-friendly and time-saving: The user is able to adjust the system to a new label within a few minutes or to load the reference of an already known label within a few seconds. Additionally, extensive statistical functions display various information and trends which enables full production control and optimization.

The LabelWatcher allows you to create an interface between the labeling machine and the inspection system. Thus, it becomes possible to optimize your labeling process by reporting inspection results back to the ERP or QM system – leading to less material and product waste.
