Cognex Vision Improves Packaging Line Efficiency

Kraft Foods Canada replaced laser scanners with Cognex DataMan 300 image based barcode readers, which have significantly improved high speed line production efficiency by providing near perfect read rates on 1D barcodes.


Allergen management is playing an increasingly important role in the packaged foods industry. Manufacturers are taking better care to avoid labelling mix-ups that sometimes lead to expensive recalls and potential liability concerns. In order to address these matters, Kraft Foods Canada scans each label after it has been affixed on the packaging line to ensure that it matches the package contents.
