Invaluable to pharmaceutical proofing system
The largest source of pharmaceutical product recalls is due to copy related errors on cartons, labels or inserts. These costs can be enourmous, as packaging of medical items are following long regulatory procedures.
As a result, companies like Procter & Gamble, Pfizer, and Lehigh Press rely on an innovative proofreading system from Global Vision Inc., combined with Contex wide format scanners, for the inspection of proofs, labels, cartons, inserts, and nested press sheets.
The automated solution of Global Vision ScanTVS with Contex wide format scanners saves customers time and prevents costly mistakes. The solution inspects hard copy proofs for print defects, missing or broken elements, and color differences.
The scanners ensure the accurate representation of users' large, hard copy documents and packaging components. The software then uses these scanned images to compare against PDF proofs, and is able to pick up differences like 50 mg that may have been inadvertently changed to 5 mg.
"We tried other scanners and found that the Contex scanners produce the most accurate representation. The quality of the images is consistent, which is important when customers validate our system," notes Reuben Malz, President of Global Vision.
Benefits & Results
The system is able to pick up very critical differences and improves quality control. It reduces valuable time to market and the chance for costly errors. The automated solution of ScanTVS with Contex wide format scanners saves customers valuable resources.
One of the advantages of the Contex scanner is its ability to automatically detect the size of the documents to scan, making it user-friendly; the scanner is designed so users don't have to be very technically savvy or have scanning experience. The combined system equates to improved quality control and reduced time to market.
