Variable Data and Quality Assurance in Digital Printing

Variable Data and Quality Assurance in Digital Printing

The challenger to a centuries old printing process, digital printing has become a staple in the printing industry, settling nicely into a niche that answers questions that traditional printing just can’t. Along with these answers, digital presses pose unique challenges in quality control and assurance that inspection system manufacturers have addressed with increasing efficiency in the past decade. Among these challenges are variations in print position on the sheet or roll, and the verification of variable printed data such as 1D and 2D bar and serial codes. Whether human readable or machine readable, accuracy is of the utmost importance.

PC Industries has developed several solutions to tackle the unique demands of digital printing, including verification of variable data. Whether you need 100% inspection or only need to verify a single feature on a label, such as a 1D and 2D code or serial number, PC Industries delivers.


The Guardian MINI offers customizable inspection that can be set to inspect only critical areas of interest, such as bar codes and serial numbers. This helps the printer save money on their inspection system by requiring a smaller area of view for the camera, and therefore less processing power. Every repeat of the code is inspected, and the results can be recorded to help create a secure audit trail.

The Guardian PQV offers the same accuracy as the Guardian MINI, but is a full-featured solution for companies with more demanding needs. The system will inspect and record defects from the entire repeat, not just the smaller area of interest. Additionally, the system offers a suite of other capabilities, including bar code grading, defect roll mapping, dimensional measurement and gauging, and OCR/OCV. Like the MINI, the PQV also generates a defect report to help create a secure audit trail.

June InfoBYTE

Each month we present a new bit of trivia, some industry related, some not, that we call an InfoByte. You can check out previous InfoBytes in our newsletter archive.

This month’s InfoByte is about 3-D Printing

Now, I’ve extolled the benefits of 3-D printing in this very section before, but as is the nature of our best toys, things keep improving. The news is no stranger to custom 3-D printed medical supports and prosthetics, but recently brought to light were three lives that were saved by 3-D printed stents.

Science Translational Medicine recently reported a followup on procedures done on three children 3 years ago to address pediatric tracheobronchomalacia, a condition where the child’s airway can collapse with little to no warning. Until this stent was developed, the treatment for this was also life-threatening, and required surgery and extended hospital stays. The new 3-D printed stent, which was designed custom for each child, grew with them until it was harmlessly resorbed into the body by the time they turned 3, the age at which almost all cases of pediatric tracheobronchomalacia are resolved through normal child development.

For more information on this procedure, refer to Medcal News Today and Science Translations Medicine.
