Solutions at the Lake Image Stand (Hall 11 / B42)
Lake Image Systems will feature its latest portfolio of powerful solutions for document producers, label printers and packaging converters to automate variable data integrity assurance and print quality inspection requirements. Four industry application zones will be demonstrated at the show. These are:
Zone 1: Digital Packaging: With variable data, digitally printed packaging is on the increase. Lake Image will be showcasing its latest solutions for reading, grading and verifying QRcodes on a webbed packaging application, as well as for detecting print defects such as streaks, voids and print registration issues.
Zone 2: Variable Data Labels & Security Printing: Variable data and barcodes on labels such as tax stamps, pharmaceutical and authentication labels are now critical for many anti-counterfeit and traceability applications such as track and trace systems. Lake Image will be demonstrating its industry winning Discovery MaxScan linear scanner in conjunction with its Discovery Multiscan3 software for high speed inspecting, reading, tracking and verifying variable codes from a highly reflective tax stamps for detecting unreadable, out of sequence, missing or duplicate labels as well as for detecting positional and printing defects.

Ideally suited for inspecting 100% of laser and inkjet web applications, the Discovery Roll Inspector utilises sophisticated software tools to simultaneously analyse multiple areas of interest (AOIs) and apply multiple quality tests per page. On stand demonstrations will show how the Roll Inspector can instantly detect print defects such as ink spots, toner streaks, voids, color variations, and image/barcode quality issues on a 2-up A4 web application. Roll Inspector will also check the readability of barcodes, OCR text, front and back duplex matching, Intelligent Mail Barcode (IMB) and MICR lines as well as performing sequence, alignment and data verification checks.
Zone 4: Loyalty, Gaming & Plastic Cards: A variety of inspection solutions will be on display including card number verification, missing/duplicate card detection, scratch off verification, pin number legibility, pin & account number reporting, sorting/batching and database integrity reporting on a EMWI FBE vacuum feeding line.
