GlobalVision ( has released the new C8 cylinder scanner for companies requiring high quality scans of bottles, tubes or cans to ensure error-free packaging.

“We are confident in the positive impact the newly released C8 will have throughout the quality control industry," said Reuben Malz, GlobalVision founder, which supplies quality control hardware and software to clients in a broad range of industries. “This marks the first top-loading cylinder scanner we are making available, which is just one of the many aspects we feel make it a game-changer for our customer base."

Designed for use in conjunction with GlobalVision’s Quality Control Platform, the C8 automatically loads and scans cylindrical objects up to 8 inches in diameter—which includes lipstick containers at the lower limit, up to cylinders larger than most coffee canisters.

“As the latest addition to our hardware line-up, the C8 complements our flatbed and roll scanners with its ability to scan cylinders and was built with tough production environments in mind. The scanner uses a unique laser-guided sensor to automatically detect and adjust for different sized bottles and cans, even remembering your most frequently scanned products. All these features, combined with an easy-to use interface, make artwork and text verification simpler on anything from beverage cans to aerosol containers, Malz added.

Other features of the C8 scanner include industry leading image quality, press side approvals for the food & beverage packaging industry, and an intuitive interface.
