Unlike standard Print Inspection system providers, our unique strengths are based on the print data; the reading, tracking, verifying and control of the numerous unique codes applied to many printed items from tax stamps to packaging. This is often in combination with other inspections and measurements that may be necessary to verify and control an entire, variable data print run.
While the core of our solutions is based on fundamental imaging, reading and inspection skills, a large number of our solutions require elements of custom development. From minor GUI changes to complete file-based, workflow tracking platforms we review every application for current and future requirements and build it to be reusable and future proof.
In addition, we have delivered numerous custom electronic hardware designs over the years. These include camera/lighting designs for difficult to read codes and holograms, along with tracking and I/O electronics for interface and control requirements.
Autodesk Inventor 3D modelling and a well-equipped machine shop support our mechanical design capabilities, enabling us to provide complex camera mounting brackets through to complete roll feed assemblies.
