Using vision-based sensors in many stages of the packaging process can dramatically reduce planned downtime and changeover time. In many cases, vision sensors can replace and even add flexibility to sensor arrays in the packaging process. Vision sensors can also reduce unplanned downtime by error-proofing the process. In this whitepaper, we will explore how vision-based sensors can achieve these results.

With the use of vision-based sensing technology, manufacturers can greatly improve the flexibility and reliability of the packaging process. Although discrete sensors are often used to look for errors and manage product changeovers, these simple devices have limitations in terms of flexibility, changeover error-proofing. Vision-based sensing technology overcomes these limitations.
