DotScan is a highly precise inspection system designed to ensure the accuracy of Braille on packaging and ensure it meets European standards.
This innovative technology measures the height and positioning of Braille dots on packaging to ensure the highest quality and precision.
DotScan can inspect samples in under two seconds using an advanced shape from shading technique to guarantee accuracy every time.
Harnessing the power of 3D, the ultra high-resolution cameras and advanced 3D measurement technology can accurately scan the individual Braille dots.
This innovative 3D technology not only determines the presence and position of Braille characters, but also provides a complete visual analysis, clearly highlighting where any errors may have occurred.
You can be confident of the highest quality control, therefore eliminating the chance of incorrectly embossed cartons ever reaching the consumer.
DotScan technology is trusted among the pharmaceutical and healthcare packaging industries where there is no room for error. It’s also now increasingly in demand among packaging producers who are keen to become more inclusive and accessible to the visually impaired.
Traditional methods of Braille inspection can be time consuming and costly. Just one tiny fault in the manufacturing process can have dangerous consequences and lead to expensive product recalls.
Above all, you can trust in DotScan to virtually eliminate the risk of error when compared to traditional visual or mechanical inspections.
