The EyeC ProofBook is an off-line inspection system that helps companies check the print quality of multi-page samples, such as books, booklets, leaflets, catalogues, double-sided pages, examination papers, or user guides. Designed for print shops and their customers, the EyeC ProofBook brings security, efficiency and flexibility to QC checks. By verifying print quality and ensuring content integrity, this print inspection system helps companies cope with strict requirements, and catch print defects before they generate losses and damage their image.
The EyeC ProofBook combines the power of intelligent software with the performance of a flatbed and duplex automatic feeder scanner. The inspection system digitally compares printed multi-page documents against the signed-off proof (typically a multi-page 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.
Avoid costly printing problems
At the print shop, the EyeC ProofBook 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.
In the incoming packaging materials lab, the EyeC ProofBook allows users to perform reliable and efficient incoming quality control. Companies can be sure that their quality standard has been met, they uphold a consistent brand image, and that their packaging quality complies with strict regulations. Users avoid costly product recalls, while keeping up with tight production schedules.
Accurately check the content of multi-page documents
The EyeC ProofBook 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 pages, and verifies their content against the signed-off proof (typically a mutli-pages PDF file). Texts, graphics, color deviations, and printed 1D codes are all checked for on all of the scanned pages in one inspection cycle.
The EyeC ProofBook identifies all typical defects with high precision, such as color deviations, filled in characters, or hickies. By performing a check against the approved artwork, it also provides a reliable content verification in any language.
Bring efficiency to your quality control
In addition to ensuring process security, the EyeC ProofBook offers a fast solution to quality control. Thanks to its high level of automation and performant hardware, the EyeC ProofBook 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.
Increase operator satisfaction
Checking long texts presents a real challenge and leads to operator fatigue. The EyeC ProofBook simplifies this task, and enhances user satisfaction.
The EyeC ProofBook has been designed with ease-of-use in mind. Its intuitive interface, available in all major languages, allows any user to perform a reliable inspection without the need of previous training. Just a few easy steps are required to perform a comprehensive quality check: Scan the sample, load the file, start the inspection, evaluate the deviations, and save or print the report.
