With more than 3,500 systems installed throughout the global printing industry, Lake Image Systems has continuously evolved and enhanced its vision-based inspection and data verification systems (cameras, scanners and software tools) since 1994. The Discovery Roll Inspector, a Graph Expo 2016 Must See Em “Best of Category” winner, exemplifies this streak. The all-in-one unit incorporates its latest camera technology, Discovery Maxscan, itself a winner of the Global Label Industry’s Innovation Award in 2016, and its inspection software, Discovery Multiscan and SmartPQ. Together, these integrated products enable the inspection automation for high volume web printing and ensures that the variable information printed on labels and on flexible packaging is readable, accurate and fully verified to minimize reprint costs and mitigate risks associated with incorrect output being dispatched.
At Xeikon Café North America, Lake Image Systems will demonstrate its latest inspection solutions for the label and packaging applications, including:
- Discovery Roll Inspector, placed inline to the Xeikon 3500 digital printing press, for inspecting print quality and verifying variable codes for a range of Label and packaging applications
- Discovery SmartPQ, specifically configured for inspecting pharmaceutical leaflets and verifying important variable information on pharmaceutical packaging and labels.
- Discovery Multiscan for automated inspection of security print applications such as tax stamps, authentication labels and lottery tickets.
The Discovery Roll Inspector leverages this advanced, compact, imaging technology to read and verify variable text and bar codes from even the most challenging reflective surfaces, common in security applications such as tax stamps and authentication labels. The solution is also suited for pharmaceutical label and packaging applications where verification of critical data such as dosage information, expiration dates, and serial and lot numbers must be readable, verified and logged for downstream serialization and track and trace systems. The same applies to pharmaceutical leaflet production where 100% verification against the master PDF is essential to comply with national and international regulatory standards.
“Our aim is to educate visitors to Xeikon Café about the benefits of an inline, compact packaging/label printing inspection solution with superior verification capabilities for VDP applications such as security labels and pharmaceutical leaflets, labels and packaging where data integrity and print error tolerances are extremely low,” says Scott Stevens, president of Lake Image Systems Inc. “When you have multiple web presses, the Discovery Roll Inspector provides the ideal inspection solution, which can be easily wheeled and placed in-between the press and the rewinder to monitor print quality and check data integrity when required for highly sensitive, critical applications that require a higher level of inspection.”
