nSpekt

Turn-key Vision Inspection and Labeling

Fitz-Thors Engineering developed the nSpekt Series (patent pending) to meet the growing demand in manufacturing for a turn-key solution that provides dynamic product verification along with automated product labeling. Combining these two processes saves time, prevents problem outflow, and allows customers to trace finished goods through an individual identification label.

The nSpekt system’s configurable resolution imaging capability (up to 21MP) validates part quality, count, color, shape, and other quality metrics. Saved images can be linked to a unique serial number, build time and date, operator, customer, or other metadata. This capability creates a database of high-resolution images of product conditions and ensures that no product leaves the manufacturer’s facility without meeting required specifications. The nSpekt system’s stored images and data provide a clear solution for resolving potential quality disputes with downstream customers.

The nSpekt equipment line offers several options depending on your packaging needs and current manufacturing process.
