Print Inspect

  • Machine vision system for automatic evaluation of print quality in the packaging and corrugated board industry.
  • 100 % control of your RDC, FFG and Printer production on various, print related criteria. Instant error detection.
  • Reduces complaints and increases customer satisfaction and loyalty.
  • Can be installed in converting machines of almost every manufacturer.

Vistron  Print  Inspect  system provides automated checking of print quality during the production of packaging, made of solid and corrugated board. The vision technology system of Vistron consists of LED lighting bars (water cooled), high-speed line scan cameras, a processing unit with software and a 24”-touchscreen for the user interface and image presentation. The Print Inspect System performs a 100 % check of the entire print of every box and can be installed in Printing Machines as well as in Rotary Die Cutters and Flexo Folder Gluers of pretty much every manufacturer. Identified quality issues are magnified and shown on the touchscreen and the Print Inspect System either marks the faulty box or triggers a sheet ejection device, depending on the technical capabilities of the production machine.  .

Print Inspect System checks the ongoing production in real time, at a linear speed of up to 350 m/min. The recognition accuracy of the system is down to a resolution of 0.35 mm². Sheet length is variable and can be up to 1.600 mm. Configuration for a sheet width of up to 3,600 mm is possible (different specs available upon customer’s request). The 100 % quality check of the Vistron Print Inspect System recognizes the following, typical defects:

  • Damages to the print substrate/corrugated board
  • Sheet feeding issue
  • Ink splatter
  • Color shade deviation
  • Missing print
  • Displaced print
  • Stripes and smearing

The configuration and installation of the Print Inspect System is customized for the machine it will go into. Print Inspect Systems are being used successfully, at various different machines in the global printing and corrugated industry, for more than 10 years. A list of reference installations is available upon request. Entering new orders and operating the system is easy and comfortable by means of a 24” touchscreen monitor. Identified faults are shown on the monitor. Pictures with faults can be zoomed in and out directly on the monitor and therefore provide useful information for root cause analysis and trouble shooting. For each order, a detailed report is created, which is available for an in-depth evaluation of any potential issues. By that, you can increase your product quality beyond the current production, optimizing your printing process and reducing your conversion costs.

The Vistron Print Inspect checks 100 % of the production of print jobs, reliably and fatigue-free. Via an error indication unit, a marking system or a fully automatic box ejection system can be triggered, so that your customers receive only perfecly printed boxes. Also the machine can be stopped after an (adjustable) number of subsequent poor boxes, avoiding waste.

  • 100 % check of the print quality of your products
  • Retrofittable to Printers, Roray Die Cutters and Flexo Folder Gluer of almost every width and manufacturer
  • User friendly operation, by means of a touchscreen
  • Simple creation of new jobs
  • No manual checks required anymore
  • Detailed report, with statistical process data
  • Reduction of customer complaints and increase of customer satisfaction
  • Short Return on Invest, typically in less than one year
