PSC - Printing Sample Check
100% SAMPLE VERIFICATION
√ AUTOMATIC DETECTION OF PRINTING DEFECTS
√ IMMEDIATE REPORT GENERATION & SHARING
√ IDEAL FOR CARTONS, LEAFLETS, LABELS, FOILS
√ FAST, IMPARTIAL, REPRODUCIBLE
Artwork Tutor supports the management of the packaging artworks in the pharmaceutical industry, from the original design to the mass printing of materials.
Based on a sophisticated software able to import and process the PDF files of the original artworks, Artwork Tutor compares them with the physical printings, automatically detecting and outlining the differences.
Artwork Tutor can work off-line on images simply scanned by a high quality scanner, or can work inline, connecting to
a high resolution camera and comparing the image just printed, thus commanding rejects of the defective items or alerting
the operator of the malfunctioning.
Advanced but very simple to use algorithms automatically align the master and the analyzed images, compensating the
physiological deformation of the support and thus avoiding false alarms.
Printing Sample Check is the new system designed by antares Vision to support the management of the printed samples in the packaging industry, from the original design to the mass printing of materials.
Based on a sophisticated software able to import and process the original PDF files, Printing Sample Check compares them with the physical printed samples, automatically detecting and outlining the differences.
Printing Sample Check works off-line acquiring images of the printed samples with a high quality certified scanner station. This ensures the most reliable performances with a fast scanning tool that can give impartial and reproducible results from sample-to-file comparison.
Advanced but very simple to use algorithms automatically align the master and the analysed images, compensating the physiological deformation of the support and thus avoiding false mistakes.
100% INSPECTION ACCURACY
• Shape and color:
- high precision inspection with all fonts: latin, arabic, chinese, korean or japanese.
- missing parts of letters
- missing, mismatched or different fonts
- missing ink
- poor printing
- stains and smudges
- color difference (ΔE)
• Barcode inspection:
- identification, inspection and decoding of 1D and 2D codes
- Datamatrix grade evaluation
• Interfaces with a supplied high speed certified scanner
• Wide range of scanner dimensional range (A1, A3, A4)
• File to file comparison
• Easy report printing and sharing of the results
HIGH EFFICIENCY AND EASE OF USE
A simple and fast procedure guides the operator along the main phases:acquisition of the image
automatic verification against the master image (PDF and other graphic formats supported)
manual error validation
Fast, impartial and reproducible results
Simultaneous acquisition and verification on a batch queue
Automatic alignment and comparison of the single master artwork with the multiple artworks printed in one sheet
Virtually unlimited definition of areas with different tolerances (up to 5 levels) to concentrate control on the most critical areas
Automatic cutting die detection
Advanced reporting to help locating the error causes in the printing process (ie. clogging of individual nozzles, stains)
• Folding cartons
• Patient information leaflets
