Optical Character Recognition & Verification Systems (OCR / OCV Systems)

Our VisionGauge® OnLine Optical Character Recognition Systems / Optical Character Verification Systems for industrial applications are able to automatically locate and read text. They can also verify that the text matches the expected character string, compute results statistics, export & exchange the results, produce reports, execute operations conditional on Pass/Fail results, etc...

Optical character recognition and verification system
"Customized" VisionGauge® OnLine OCR System, with integrated motion control and adapted optics & illumination

These Optical Character Recognition and Verification systems include adapted, low distortion optics and programmable, computer-controlled illumination, for maximum repeatability of results. They also include the entire VisionGauge® OnLine toolset. All of VisionGauge® OnLine's image processing and analysis tools are thus available to automatically "cleanup" the image before carrying out the character recognition operation. This can dramatically improve results in the cases where there is contamination, background noise, difficult to read characters, etc...

VisionGauge® OnLine's automated OCR / OCV tool is very robust in the presence of print defects and includes an advanced, proprietary "character splitting" algorithm to deal with print imperfections, smears, and other defects. VisionGauge® OnLine's OCR / OCV tool is "user-trainable" and supports user-supplied character and symbol libraries.

Below you can view sample videos of a customized Optical Character Recognition / Optical Character Verification System. This is a motorized system that was adapted to process 272 parts at a time, on two trays. The system sits on a regular workbench.

Many different configurations of our VisionGauge® OnLine Optical Character Recognition / Optical Character Verification Systems are available. We can configure a system to meet your specific requirements! Contact us for more information.
