Prinect Inspection Control wins PIA InterTech Technology Award 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Prinect Inspection Control, the inline sheet inspection system from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), has won the InterTech Technology Award 2010 presented by Printing Industries America. This is the fourth consecutive such award that various Heidelberg technologies have won over the past four years, including the Speedmaster XL 105, the Prinect Press Center with wallscreen and Intellistart, and the inline color measuring system Prinect Inpress Control.

This year, the panel of international experts was impressed by the high-resolution two-camera system of Prinect Inspection Control. This can be used in many different applications and also identifies printing errors and material defects at an early stage. Defective sheets are already marked when they arrive in the delivery pile and can be removed either as soon as the error has been rectified or later on. This makes it possible to cut waste and postprocessing costs considerably and maintain customers' high quality requirements.

Prinect Inspection Control is available in two versions. The color inspection system with its two high-resolution RGB cameras is aimed at packaging, label, and high-quality commercial printers, while the gray scale inspection system with additional inline PDF inspection offers a solution for safety-oriented print shops that carry out work for the pharmaceuticals industry, for example.

"The frequency with which Heidelberg products receive the internationally recognized InterTech Award underlines the technological leadership of Heidelberg within the industry. In the future, we will continue to do everything we can to ensure our machines and services generate even more success for our customers," says Stephan Plenz, member of the Management Board responsible for Heidelberg Equipment.

Prinect Inspection Control has been available since 2007 and is used successfully by many customers all over the world. It can be supplied for the Speedmaster XL 105 series and will in future also be available for the new Speedmaster CX 102.
