X-label places large order with Erhardt + Leimer

December 22, 2008

Seventeen of the converter’s presses will be equipped with NYSCAN inspection systems.

X-Label, a converter based in Solingen, Germany, has decided to equip all of the company’s printing presses with Erhardt+Leimer (E+L) inspection technology. The system from the NYSCAN range of products guarantees 100 percent inspection of print production over the entire run time and web width.
 
The core of the X-label workflow solution is automatic roll identification via an existing BDE bar code in conjunction with the archiving of all the roll reports of all presses on a central server with a direct link connection to the quality control department. This level of integration is a first in the industry, according to Stephan Krebs of E+L, and the QC department is therefore in full control of the acceptance or rejection of any faults. Quality Control uses the NYSCAN Roll:Scheduler software to edit each roll on single and repeat faults.
 
In order to load the correct roll protocol, a BDE bar code and hand scanners are used. After editing the roll protocol, the modified file is again stored on the central server by QC, ready to be accessed again by a bar code scanner that is placed at each and every slitter-rewinder. The defect stop positions, which have been refined by QC, are then automatically and accurately positioned, thus single faults can be corrected and larger faults removed.
