BST reveals four new inspection products


The Powerscope 5000, Eagleview, WideArray Edge Detectors and IPQ Workflow were officially introduced to the market.

BST North America introduced four new products at Labelexpo – the Powerscope 5000, Eagleview, WideArray Edge Detectors and IPQ Workflow.

The Powerscope 5000 is the next generation of BST’s narrow web visual inspection system. It features a high resolution 16Mb camera capable of viewing a print area as large as 100mm x 75mm (4in x 3in) and magnifying register marks and other small print details up to 35X magnification. It now has programmable positions as a standard feature.

EagleView is the newest model within the Tubescan 100% inspection range. Tubescan EagleView has two cameras in a single housing. One provides 100%  inspection of the material, while the second – which is on a moving traverse – simultaneously provides highly magnified images of any area or detail within the print repeat. It is the first 100%  inspection system to incorporate both a 100% inspection camera and a detail-viewing camera in one system.

WideArray Edge Detectors, part of the AccuWeb brand, feature large detection ranges to accommodate variations in web width. Web widths can be changed on the fly, eliminating the need to physically reposition edge sensors.

iPQ Workflow is a package of products that allow linking of machines, departments and processes into integration quality assurance systems. The components enable reliable assessment, correction and efficient removal of defects, provide solutions for data sharing, assist in complex finishing processes, and help streamline quality control from pre-press to shipping of finished labels. IPQ Workflow is comprised of five modules: Plate Auditor, Event Logger, Quality Assistant, Waste Indicator, and Rewind Navigator.
