X-label equips presses with with Erhardt + Leimer inspection systems

April 27, 2009

The technology offers 100 percent inspection over the entire web width.

X-label, a label converter in Bremen, Germany, has decided to equip all of the company’s printing presses with Erhardt+Leimer inspection technology. The system from the NYSCAN range of products offers 100 percent print inspection over the entire run time and web width.

Dependent on the inspection parameters of the high-resolution cameras, all faults found are permanently documented in a roll protocol. These roll protocols are subsequently used in the NYSCAN workflow to position the detected faults on the splice table of the downstream slitter rewinders of the finishing department.

The core of the X-label workflow system is automatic roll identification via an existing BDE bar code, in conjunction with the archiving of all the roll reports of all the presses on a central server with a direct link connection to the quality control department. The QC department is therefore in full control of the acceptance/rejection of any faults.
