There are several key attributes within the medical packaging industry, such as, Anchorage, Seal strength etc, which characterize the quality of the medical packaging product. This paper presents a new approach to determine the Anchorage of the packaging material. The conventional approach to anchorage measurement involves a manual visual inspection procedure, which is very subjective and has led to inconsistencies in quality control. A new proposed method to improve this procedure involves image-processing technique, which will eliminate operator dependencies. A fuzzy reasoning approach is then used to quantify the results generated from image processing which replaces the human decision process. This fusion of these techniques results in a more automated systematic approach to anchorage measurement. Experimental studies confirm that this novel approach leads to a more robust and improved quality control system for the medical packaging company.
