Lake Image Systems to Introduce IntegraVision IMB at Graph Expo

Monday, September 08, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Henrietta, NY; (September 07, 2008) -Lake Image Systems will introduce IntegraVision IMB at Graph Expo 2008.  The latest and most sophisticated camera-based verification system available today, IntegraVision IMB employs a personal computer with one or more cameras attached.  Simultaneously providing three essential capabilities in a mailing system, the IntegraVision IMB:

- Reads and verifies each intelligent mail bar code (IMB) to ensure that each printed bar code complies with USPS dimensional specifications, thus enabling the printer or mailer to qualify for maximum postal discounts.

- Identifies any missing or duplicate pieces in a production run by parsing the unique identifier contained in the IMB code, and either checks the sequencing of the identifier or compares it to a data file.

- Generates integrity reports to prove the integrity of the production run and provide an audit trail of each piece of mail.

Typically, the IntegraVision IMB camera is mounted on a high-speed print line such as an inkjet head on an offset press, a mailing base, or the output of a mail inserter.  The camera images the entire address area of the mail piece and identifies missing or duplicate pieces while verifying the dimensional integrity of the IMB code.  The Lake Image Systems IntegraVision IMB operates at speeds as high as 90,000 pieces per hour, with 100 percent inspection.  Machine control is provided to divert, stop the line, and/or alert the operator based on a user-definable number of errors.  Using the IntegraVision IMB, printers and mailers can automatically identify integrity errors without inspection labor expense, while creating production reports to comply with service level agreement contracts.  Commenting on the new system, Lake Image Systems vice-president Pat Hoskins said: "The Lake Image Systems IntegraVision IMB reduces the printer's or mailer's capital investment.  The optional IntegraServe package, can link multiple IntegraVision IMB systems throughout a plant to reconcile jobs and create enterprise-wide production reports."
