The EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed is a retrofit module designed for 100% print inspection of sheets during printing. Available for numerous sheetfed offset presses (such as the ones from KBA, Manroland and Heidelberg), this in-line system monitors the quality of the entire print job, checks it against the customer proof, and alerts the operator in case of defects.
The EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed offers print shops a cost-effective and flexible solution to improve their print quality and reduce their production costs.
Avoid costly customer reclamations and win new business
Defects in a packaging may put a patient’s or user‘s life in jeopardy. As a consequence, any quality problems expose packaging producers to costly reprints or reclamations.
With the EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed, print shops can be sure to fulfill their clients’ expectations and keep them satisfied. It also provides them a key sales argument to differentiate from the competition, and win new business.
Reduce material waste and production costs
Productivity is the key to facing the increasing competition and improving the bottom line. The EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed reduces costs associated to quality.
By catching defects in real time, the system allows the operator to correct the problem before too many waste materials have been printed. By counting the number of good items produced, it also eliminates the need for over runs. As a result, the EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed prevents the waste of expensive consumables and valuable machine time, and reduces production time.
Accurately check the content of 100% of your sheets
The EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed uses high speed line scan cameras and a high performance computer system to continuously verify the printed quality. Thanks to its easy job set-up, high inspection speed and accurate defects detection, it offers best-in-class performances. Even if operated at maximum press speed, the system detects the smallest defects. As a result, jobs are processed and proofed without slowing down production.
The EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed identifies with high precision all typical defects, such as errors in text, color deviations, misregisters, press contamination, hickies, filled in or missing characters. By performing an initial check against the approved artwork PDF, it provides a reliable content verification in any languages, and prevents job mix-up. By monitoring 100% of printed sheets, it asserts quality and consistency through the entire job.
Increase operator’s satisfaction
The EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed obviates the need for manual or off-line quality control. It increases process safety, simplifies quality checks, and enhances operator satisfaction. Designed with ease of use in mind, its intuitive interface - available in all major languages - allows any operator to perform a meaningful in-line inspection easily.
Thanks to its intelligent technology, the EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed only alerts the operator in case of significant deviations. Thereby, the inspection system reduces potential eye strain and fatigue. The clear presentation of deviations and key statistical information – such as the defect heatmap - help the operator to understand the location and origin of printing defects easily. The full inspection report that is produced at the end of each job automatically, offers managers a perfect tracking, analysis and communication support.
