Lake Image Systems meets all your inspection needs
Whether you are printing expiry dates, match numbers, variable barcodes, QR codes or a unique ID onto folding cartons, films, corrugate packaging or labels, you need to make sure the printed data is legible, readable, accurate and error-free. The integrity of the printed data is essential for marketing campaigns, track and trace systems or health education.
Furthermore, randomly occurring print defects on packaging can surface at anytime. Print defects such as mis-registration, die-cut variations, smudges, hickeys, hazing, streaks, creases, wrinkles and colour variation needs to be identified and rectified quickly to save waste, time and money.
Manual print quality inspection or using strobed video web viewing systems (which monitor only small portions of the web) falls short of what is required.
Lake Image offers a one vendor solution for all your print inspection needs, ensuring both your print quality control and essential variable print meets your client requirements. Typical examples include:-
Laser code verification on drinks cans, cartons tops and foil wrappers. Typically a 2D competition codes require verification against a database
Laser and conventional die cut to print registration verification. For reel to reel production, it is very difficult to measure registration between print and die cuts. With the aid of appropriate lighting and the Multiscan measure software tool, this can be achieved with great accuracy
Surface inspection on cloth material and laminated board. With the correct resolution line scan camera and lighting, we are able to see scratches, blemishes, scratches, and splices on a fast-continuous wide web.
