Microscan to Demonstrate ID & Inspection Solutions for Today’s Packaging Challenges at Pack Expo 2013

Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, and lighting solutions, announces that it will showcase its latest identification and inspection solutions for product traceability and quality compliance in Booth #S-7455 at Pack Expo 2013, taking place in the Las Vegas Convention Center, September 23-25. The company will demonstrate how its barcode readers and smart cameras can be incorporated into packaging lines and machinery to monitor, track, and record critical data on products, labels, and secondary packaging.

Manufacturers need to detect mislabeled products, mismatched packaging containers, poorly printed text, and unreadable barcodes early in the process, allowing for corrective action before products make it into the supply chain. Microscan’s AutoVISION™ machine vision will highlighted during in-booth product demonstrations. The product line, which includes the Vision MINI and Vision HAWK smart cameras along with the AutoVISION™ machine vision software interface, was developed to simplify the setup and deployment of machine vision applications. The intuitive software incorporates high-performance features such as barcode quality verification; decode tools for 1D and 2D barcodes; OCR and OCV; automated job changeover; and Microscan Link for one-click connectivity to PLCs and other control systems.

Also on display at Pack Expo will be Microscan’s broad range of advanced data collection products including laser barcode scanners, 2D imagers, 1D/2D scan engines, handheld readers, and vision smart cameras excelling in applications from basic barcode reading to complex machine vision inspection, identification and measurement. With more than 30 years of proven performance, Microscan remains committed to continuous innovation and development to help manufacturers ensure the quality of packaging while at the same time maximizing production flow.

Best-in-class bottle from Innis & Gunn





Posted by Kari Embree, Senior Digital Content Editor — Packaging Digest, 7/18/2013 12:34:49 PM


Innis & Gunn bottle



Ardagh Group has produced a new lighter weight 660mL bottle for Innis & Gunn’s Original and Rum Finish beers. In keeping with its record of continuous innovation, Innis & Gunn set Ardagh the task of producing the lightest weight bottle in its class at 360 grams, which will sit alongside a newly light weighted 330mL bottle.

Ardagh’s product design team applied its advanced computer simulation technology including finite element analysis (FEA) and prototype modelling to develop the new bottle.

Moving to lower weight glass bottles will considerably lessen the brewer’s environmental impact. The combined weight reduction—the 330mL bottle now weighs 195 grams, down from the current 245 grams—will represent a saving of 2,000 metric tonnes of CO2 over the next three years.

Celebrating 10 years in business, Scotland’s leading independent beer company can now offer a 660mL serving to its loyal band of followers across the globe. Innis & Gunn is the best-selling British bottled beer in Canada and number one bottled import ale in Sweden.
