Lake Image Systems to demonstrate solutions at Labelexpo Americas

Press release from the issuing company

Henrietta, NY - Lake Image Systems, the worldwide leader in vision control and verification systems, has announced the first North American showing of its new Discovery PQ print quality inspection solution, in booth 5620 at Labelexpo Americas 2010 in Chicago, September 14-16.  Introduced at IPEX 2010 earlier this year, Lake Image Systems Discovery PQ performs high-speed inspection of continuous web printing at speeds in excess of 1,000 feet per minute.  Particularly well-suited for automated inspection, defect detection, and display of foils, clear films, and flexible packaging, Lake Image Systems Discovery PQ can acquire large format images in both wide and narrow web applications.
Discussing the product introduction, Lake Image Systems Vice President Pat Hoskins commented: "Lake Image Systems Discovery PQ employs a line scan camera capable of imaging an entire web for continuous printing applications.  Unlike area scan cameras, which only capture a portion of a document in each image, the Lake Image Systems line scan cameras use a single line of sensors to build a continuous image one line at a time.  This enables Discovery to capture high resolution color or black and white images as wide as 8,000 pixels, at substrate speeds in excess of 1,000 feet per minute.  Lake Image Systems Discovery PQ is particularly applicable to pharmaceutical, medical, and food packaging printing, where accuracy and image consistency must be demonstrable to print customers.  Discovery PQ alerts the operator when defects are identified.  Roll map reporting displays the location and defect at all positions, so quality personnel can make defect acceptance decisions prior to rewinding or finishing."
