PC Industries provides high-accuracy, high-speed security print inspection solutions

PC Industries, partnered with Vision Assurance Systems and Gremser Graphishe  Maschinen, announces the recent successful installation of a 100% security print inspection system in the Netherlands for currency and banknote inspection. Known for tackling some of the most demanding applications in the print industry, PC Industries continues to surpass expectations with the installation of these recent systems.

Security printing applications pose a unique set of challenges for inspection systems, including placing higher demands on cameras and CPUs. These high-speed applications demand a level of speed and accuracy that have often presented problems to off-the-shelf and even engineered systems. Additionally, the different processes used in security printing, such as intaglio and offset, all pose their own specific types of challenges. The solutions provided by PC Industries combine multiple high-resolution cameras with special lighting to inspect visible, UV, IR, and transmissive security features. The systems also have embedded security features such as password-protected operator accounts that keep a secure log of all operator actions, and the ability to output and securely store PDF reports of inspection results.

The engineering efforts that ensured the success of this installation will help PC Industries improve their entire line of print inspection products. PC Industries will continue to push at the forefront of technology to provide their customers with the most technologically capable and advanced systems available.
