Lake Image Systems Launches Discovery Roll Inspector for 100% Print Quality Assurance
Friday 05. August 2016 - Lake Image Systems is pleased to announce the release of Discovery Roll Inspector, an in-line print quality inspection system for Web printers that combines the best in print quality assurance, speed and ease of implementation.
Back to overview
Today, sophisticated document composition tools can produce jobs where every page can be different from the next! These can be printed in simplex, duplex, full color – at speeds exceeding 1000 fpm. Under these conditions, operators stand little chance of detecting print defects which can quickly produce large amounts of waste. Moreover, if the defective print goes out undetected and uncorrected, it could result in expensive rejects, reruns or worse, loss of business!
The Discovery Roll Inspector is an in-line, all-in-one, print quality inspection system from Lake Image Systems. Ideally suited for inspecting 100% of laser and inkjet web applications, the Discovery Roll Inspector ensures that all of your printing meets the high standards required by your clients. The Discovery Roll Inspector utilizes sophisticated software tools to simultaneously analyze multiple areas of interest (AOIs) and apply multiple quality tests per page. This enables the Roll Inspector to instantly detect print defects such as ink spots, toner streaks, voids, color variations, and image/barcode quality issues. Optionally, Roll Inspector checks the readability of barcodes, text, postal codes, and MICR lines as well as performing sequence checks, alignment and data verification for a variety of highly complex, data extensive, variable documents.
Discovery Roll Inspector is available in three configurations to address all levels of inspection requirements: View, Standard, and Full. This modular design enables clients to start with the View “base system” and upgrade all the way to a “Full” system as their requirements grow.
“Following our initial field trial of the product, the overwhelming feedback from our valued customers and prospects was very positive and we strongly believe the market conditions are ready for such a product”, commented Scott Stevens, President of Lake Image Systems Inc. “The Discovery Roll Inspector has the ability to utilize sophisticated software tools to simultaneously analyze multiple AOIs and apply multiple print quality and data verification tests per pages reliably, at press speeds exceeding a 1000 fpm. Furthermore, the system is designed for minimum operator interactions and has a low degree of false stops, greatly improving operational efficiencies. This allows our clients to do 100% print assurance management cost effectively, whilst saving on expensive reruns and more importantly safeguarding them against potentially crippling financial risks.”
