Autocoding from OAL removes human error at Greencore
Earlier this year OAL joined forces with Cognex to deliver a seminar on food industry vision and ID technologies. The event welcomed Caroline Smales, Technical Manager at Greencore Leeds to discuss the advantages to having Autocoding by OAL on site and their future plans. At the Greencore factory in Leeds, OAL installed an Autocoding system in order to remove human error from the packing line. The system allowed the site to keep track of the 200 different variants of Yorkshire Pudding that are produced and allow additional checks to ensure greater accuracy.
Autocoding from OAL allowed the site to remove all the paperwork from the factory floor and lower the risk of costly product recalls.
In operation, OAL's Autocoding links to a master database of product profiles, online scanners and printers which give the company complete control over their processes as well as the ability to build and upgrade, which is where the Leeds site see's itself now. Future plans for the site are to move focus from product quality checks and coding assurance to measuring the overall plant performance by using the data it captures every day with expansion modules from OAL Connected.
