Reel Labels Invests in latest QC equipment

We have made a significant investment in an ultra-fast automated pre-press inspection system which integrates into our current workflow.  The system performs a 100% inspection of the first off print sample against the approved proof to highlight and record any defects.

Avoid costly printing problems

The EyeC Proofiler combines the power of intelligent software with the performance of a high-resolution scanner. The inspection system digitally compares the scanned samples against the signed-off proof (typically a PDF file). The operator can easily check deviations and make sure that the samples’ quality complies with requirements. The inspection is simple, fast, impartial, and reproducible. Results are fully documented for perfect traceability.

At the print shop, the EyeC Proofiler can be used to check the first print, perform regular inspections while the press is running, or verify quality before shipping material to customers. As a result, printers are sure – without the need for a second pair of eyes – to set-up the press properly and run the job correctly the first time. Potential problems are detected and corrected earlier on, which in turn reduces wasted material, avoids costly reprints or reworks, and ensures customer satisfaction.

Accurately check the complete content of your samples

Every EyeC Proofiler comes with a very fast, high resolution scanner used to obtain high quality images of the print samples. Thanks to a technology patented by EyeC, the system automatically locates every sample or every “up” in a repeat, and verifies their content against the signed-off proof (typically a PDF file). Texts, graphics, color deviations, printed 1D and 2D codes (barcodes, data matrix codes, QR codes), as well as embossed and printed Braille are all checked for on all of the scanned samples in one inspection cycle.

The EyeC Proofiler identifies all typical defects with high precision, such as color deviations, mis-registers, press contamination, filled in characters, hickies, poor quality codes or Braille points. By performing a check against the approved artwork, it also provides a reliable content verification in any language, and prevents job mix-up.

Bring efficiency to your quality control

In addition to ensuring process security, the EyeC Proofiler offers a fast solution for quality control. Thanks to its high level of automation and performant hardware, the EyeC Proofiler drastically reduces inspection time. The customer proof is automatically loaded based on the entered job data. Pre-defined parameter settings allow it to adapt to the inspection sensitivity for the different products’ requirements in one click. Even composite jobs, for instance front and back labels, can be checked against their corresponding PDFs in one click.
