The EyeC ProofRunner Web 450 inspection system was installed on the Bobst Expert M3 flexo printing press. The system provides constant monitoring of the printing process and identifies various types of label defects, the criteria for which are determined in the system settings, and instantly alerts the printer if any faults are detected.
“We have a long-term relationship with Spektr in providing raw materials for printing,” says Kiryl Zubrytski, director of Paritet System. “It is a great honor for us to be more than just a supplier but also the first to install an EyeC inspection system at one of the largest printing houses in Belarus.”
Full control of print quality provided by the EyeC ProofRunner Web without the visual involvement of the printer makes it possible to increase overall printing speed, too. Spektr operates mainly with Bobstand Omet presses, with a maximum number of flexo units up to 12 colors. Spektr offers a complete turnkey process, which includes design development, printing of labels and packaging, and delivery by its own transport fleet serving customers in CIS countries, as well Western Europe. Production is equipped with more than 40 units of printing equipment and the total number of employees exceeds 400 people.
Installed on a printing press or a rewinder, the EyeC ProofRunner Web uses a compact, high speed line scan camera to continuously acquire a high-resolution image of the entire web. A high-performance computer system identifies all printed items on the web and performs an intelligent comparison of each printed item against the customer proof.
