Henrietta, NY -- Lake Image Systems, the worldwide leader in vision control and verification systems, has introduced a new, more detailed print quality inspection system. Designated IntegraVision PQ, the new product provides 'golden template' matching of all pages printed on a web, comparing each page to how an ideal image should appear. Lake Image Systems IntegraVision PQ provides commercial printers and label manufacturers with the consistent repeatability so essential in pharmaceutical, medial, and food packaging printing. The system uses high-resolution linescan camera technology to image 100 percent of the print produced, at speeds as great at 1000 feet per minute, thus ensuring acceptable print quality throughout the run.
Lake Image Systems IntegraVision PQ identifies print errors in real time. Errors which can be detected using IntegraVision PQ include streaks and voids; out-of-position and out-of-alignment images; controlled document verification (as required when manufacturing pharmaceutical leaflets); and proof checking of documents prepared in languages such as Mandarin, Kanji, Hebrew, and Arabic. IntegraVision PQ is capable of identifying defects as small as 0.04mm.
Discussing the new product, Lake Image Systems vice president Pat Hoskins added, "An especially user-friendly operator interface is a key feature of IntegraVision PQ. Users may define alarms as desired. A defect map feature detects errors on the roll at the unwind stage, and a Teach mode quickly establishes the 'golden template' image. A real time visual display includes instantaneous zooming and freeze frame capability. Comprehensive reports may be created quickly and easily."
