• Reading and evaluation of characters, numbers, letters, codes, logos and graphics

  • Reliability at high-speed

  • Integrated line scan camera optimized for the needs of today’s printing technology

  • Simple configuration

Nowadays, almost all packaging has markings printed on it: from the best-before date (BBD) to serial, batch, and product numbers. They serve the complete traceability and quality assurance of all products. A reliable and fast character recognition system such as IMAGO's FastCodeReader is needed to view and check the markings.

Reliability at high-speed


With the powerful FastCodeReader, you can achieve maximum reading rates and maximum reliability even at high process speeds of up to 800m/min.


Suitable for multiple tasks - individually adaptable to your needs


For example, the FastCodeReader reads (OCR) texts and evaluates the quality of printed numbers, letters, and characters (OCV) of any font. It also reads 1D codes (barcodes) and 2D codes (Datamatrix, QR) or even recognizes logos and graphics. With just one image, you can check plain text, codes, and graphics for presence, legibility, and correctness.

With integrated line scan camera for narrow and long images


The FastCodeReader is optimized for the needs of today's printing technology. Long and single-line code lines on packaging, foils, and parcels are easily handled by the integrated smart camera VisionCam with a line sensor (image size e.g. 300 pixels x 5,000 pixels).

Hardware optionally adaptable


IMAGO develops the power combination of lighting and optics together with the in-house VisionCam smart camera, which can be individually adapted to your system from an MOQ of 50 units. Industrial Ethernet supports easy integration into the machine.
