Food: Secondary Packaging
We are experts in advanced optics, LED, laser, and photoelectric circuits. Our rugged, easy to use sensors are capable of solving a number of the most difficult packaging applications, including regulating product flow and detecting targets with vibrant graphics and clear, shiny packaging. Vision and image sensors from Banner provide comprehensive inspection capabilities for label verification, bar code reading, optical character recognition and date/lot code inspection. Our expanding line of LED lights and indicators provide years of brilliant bright illumination and status indication.
Dark packaging with multiple colors transitions can be difficult to detect with traditional red LED sensors. Banner Engineering’s miniature VS8 photoelectric sensor with blue LED works well with low reflectivity labels to detect refrigerated food packaged in pressurized cans. The small sensors fit into tight spaces and work well for short range applications. The blue LED works with the small spot size to minimize the effects of color transitions on the labels.
