In-line digital print quality inspection system for Web printers for 100% print quality assurance, variable data verification and job integrity.
Pre-press and document composition tools can produce jobs where every page can be different from the next. Under these conditions, the operators stand little chance of detecting print defects which can quickly produce large amounts of waste. Any undetected and uncorrected error could result in expensive rejects, re-runs or worse, loss of future business! Also many digital web presses have no inbuilt inspection module resulting in the need for an offline manual or semi-automated inspection process, post-print.
The Discovery Roll Inspector is an inline, all-in-one, 100% web inspection system from Lake Image Systems. Ideally suited for laser and inkjet web printing systems, the Discovery Roll Inspector ensures all your printing meets the high standards required by your clients.
Combined Data Verification and Print Quality Inspection
- Discovery Roll Inspector utilizes sophisticated software tools to simultaneously analyse multiple areas of interest (AOIs) and apply multiple quality tests per page.
- Performs highly complex inspection analysis for variable data printing applications that have no set, recurring, or predictable formats by combining multiple verification tests on a specific page as required. For example by reading a “page 1” marker, Roll Inspector can “conditionally” perform Address verification and validate the IMB code printed on page 1.
- Instantly detect print defects such as ink spots, toner streaks, voids, color variations, and image/barcode quality issues. Check readability of barcodes, text, postal codes, and MICR lines as well as performing sequence, alignment, data verification, and matching verifications for a variety of highly complex, data intensive and variable documents
Un-interrupted inspection for multi-job print runs
- Multiple jobs can be run continuously, one after another, without the need to stop the print line or any operator interaction
- When a defect is detected, a zoomed in view of the defect is displayed and highlighted. An indication of the defect is given and the operator must view the image and declare it good or bad. The printer is NOT STOPPED unless the operator ignores too many defects, or the system is configured to stop after a set number of defects
- All QC retained and defect images are stored with associated date and time stamp, machine ID, and operator ID. All images can be reviewed at a later date or when a customer wants proof of print quality
