The DATEmark system is a flexible vision inspection systems mainly designed to measure and inspect products, where all acceptable products are identical within some tolerances. The systems are often used for verification of imprint or label number, code reading, assembly verification inspections, defect inspection, and gauging.
The system is designed to be very flexible and at the same time very easy and simple to use. It is operated via an interactive track-ball / screen dialog where the operator manipulates texts and graphics to adjust the system. The menu text is deliverable in several languages.
The vision functions in the system includes:
- Reference point finding
- Measuring tools, height, width, distance etc
- OCR/OCV tool for text reading and verification
- 2D-matrix reading and verifying tools (Datamatrix)
- Pixel counter tools
By combining the tools properly it is possible to create many complex and effective inspections on an unlimited range of products. The system can support up to 4 cameras each performing different combinations of inspections. See also Applications.
The DATEmark system having been in service since 1994 with more than 250 units delivered is presently being phased out. The more modern and powerful system VisioRead / VisioRead Colour with added speed and new advanced tools but also including the same basic functionality is now the preferred system for this type of applications.
