The EyeC ProofRunner Carton Retrofit is a retrofit module that converts practically any existing folder gluer into the perfect inspection solution for folding cartons. Developed together with the machine manufacturer Kohmann, it is integrated between the folder gluer’s feeder and the pre-folding section, and checks the quality of 100% of the folding cartons before their shipment to customers.
By allowing print shops to take advantage of the latest 100% print inspection technology without replacing their existing machinery, the EyeC ProofRunner Carton Retrofit offers a cost-effective, compact, and reliable solution to avoid customer rejects, keep existing customers satisfied, and achieve new business opportunities.
Meet high-quality requirements
As required for most packaged materials for pharmaceutical, cosmetic, toiletry, and branded products, the EyeC ProofRunner Carton Retrofit inspects 100% of the production of folding cartons, and compares it against the signed-off proof (typically a PDF file). The in-line system verifies the entire carton surface, including all flaps. It uses the folder gluer’s existing ejection device to reject any defective item, and provides a full inspection report.
The EyeC ProofRunner Carton Retrofit makes it easy to avoid customer rejects and keep existing customers satisfied. By ensuring defect-free deliveries, it provides a key sales argument to differentiate from competition, and opens new business opportunities.
A fast, accurate and compact solution
The EyeC ProofRunner Carton Retrofit allows print shops to increase their print quality, while optimizing existing processes and resources. Integrated directly in the existing folder gluer, this compact module adds only 800 mm (31.49”) to the overall length of the machine.
Thanks to the EyeC ProofRunner Carton Retrofit, no additional process or operator is needed to perform a full and accurate print inspection. Moreover, even if operated at a speed of up to 500 m/min (1,640 ft/min), it detects the smallest defects, so the operator does not have to slow down production or compromise on quality standards.
Increase operator satisfaction
The EyeC ProofRunner Carton Retrofit has been designed with ease-of-use in mind. This in-line inspection system is quick to set-up and easy to use. The intuitive interface, available in all major languages, guides the operator, increasing process safety, while simplifying quality controls and enhancing operator satisfaction.
The high performance vacuum belt of the EyeC ProofRunner Carton Retrofit guarantees safe handling of all cartons as well as their proper alignment. Moreover the unit is robust and easily accessible for maintenance.
