Matrox Imaging at Pack Expo 2017: Product Preview

Food packaging inspection—featuring label verification and SureDotOCR dot-matrix reading tool—to be focus of Matrox booth


Matrox will feature the 4Sight GPm,
Iris GTR smart camera, and the latest
version of Matrox Design Assistant
software at Pack Expo 2017.

MONTREAL, Quebec – September 5, 2017—At Pack Expo 2017, Booth S-8152, Matrox® Imaging will demonstrate the reading of packaging information applied using a CIJ printer, as well as barcode reading and label verification, all implemented using the Matrox Design Assistant 5 flowchart-based vision software. The packaging information will be read using the Matrox SureDotOCR™ software tool running on a Matrox Iris GTR smart camera. The barcode reading and label verification will be performed using a Matrox 4Sight GPm vision controller connected to two industrial cameras.

Matrox will also have a fully functional software demo station, providing visitors the opportunity to see the range of capabilities of Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) 10, the vision software toolkit that includes the MIL CoPilot interactive evaluation and prototyping environment and Matrox Design Assistant 5, to carry out automated visual inspection as well as tracking and tracing.

Matrox SureDotOCR™, a software tool specifically designed for the unique challenge of reading dot-matrix text, is now integrated with both MIL and Matrox Design Assistant software. SureDotOCR is straightforward in use, providing the ability to quickly verify product details and accurately track and trace product throughout production and distribution—a crucial quality-control measure for meeting regulatory requirements.

Matrox Design Assistant is the first hardware-independent integrated development environment (IDE) that lets users build a machine vision project based on an application flowchart and HMI. Freed from the need for conventional programming, developers can take machine vision projects from concept to completion in record time.

Matrox Iris GTR is an extremely rugged, IP67-rated smart camera. Measuring just 75mm x 75mm x 54mm, the Iris GTR fits easily into tight and dirty spaces. Powered by CMOS image sensors with high readout rates and an Intel® Celeron® dual-core embedded processor, it capably inspects fast-moving lines and performs more inspections in an allotted time.

Matrox 4Sight GPm—a vision controller featuring a unique combination of embedded PC technology, compact size, and ruggedness—is an ideal solution for cost-sensitive image analysis and machine vision applications.

MIL 10 is a comprehensive collection of software tools for developing machine vision applications, with tools optimized for every step in the process—from application feasibility to prototyping, through to development and deployment. MIL 10 with Processing Pack 2 includes the SureDotOCR dot-matrix text reader, a reliable ellipse finder, an updated metrology tool for 3D cross-section extraction and analysis, and a barcode reader that works in more instances than ever without need to adjust default settings.

A 64-bit Windows®-based application, MIL CoPilot provides a unified interactive environment to experiment with MIL, allowing programmers to test one or more approaches to solving an application before writing any code.
