FlexVision

 

A Complete Solution for Code Creation, Verification, Reading and Processing

The FlexVision system is developed for deployment in the document production and processing environment like addressing and inserting. The system is designed to increase productivity and integrity with an easy to use and affordable solution. FlexVision is developed with the following applications in mind:

  • Read-and-print

    Read a barcode, look up the address or any additional data in a database and print the information. Fast random searches are supported.

  • Closed-loop processing

    Monitor mail piece printing or inserting and enable easy reconciliation of faulty or missing mail pieces by checking off or time stamp records in a database when they pass the reader to ensure 100% mailings and/or reprints.

  • Matching

    Match documents that are collated from different stations on inserters (including swing-arm-inserters) or other production lines and make sure the items match.

  • In-line barcode grading

    In-line barcode grading according to several ISO/IEC standards to ensure that printed barcodes meet the (postal) specifications. Includes verification of postal 4-state barcodes (e.g. IMB, Royal Mail 4-state etc.).

  • Image capture

    Capture and index images of documents or envelopes for archiving and as proof that the item was handled correctly.

One Single Integrated System

Putting a vision system together no longer requires the risky and time consuming integration of hardware and software of different vendors. Flex Systems’ FlexVision system is developed as a single turnkey system consisting of all necessary key components that seamlessly fit together:

  • A choice of two different industry standard cameras for code reading depending on your needs and application. Both have integrated lighting and autofocus.

  • An I/O controller offering connections for cameras, encoders, digital inputs, and TCP/IP as well as outputs to control devices and an optional light tower with alarm.

  • FlexMail or FlexStream professional printing and document processing software with access and control of the controller, camera and any other connected device completely integrated. No need for additional software.

Easy Deployment and Operation

The system is easy to setup and guarantees a very fast turn-around time between varying jobs.

  • Plug and Play installation with automatic detection of both the FlexVision I/O controller as well as any connected FlexVision camera.

  • Camera setup from within the software with intelligent tuning. Image based reader visualization allows you to see what the reader sees for image review or no-read feedback, directly and completely integrated in the FlexMail and FlexStream software.

  • Powerful processing of received input by FlexMail or FlexStream. Processing steps are defined by filling out some simple setup windows.
