banner

Greetings, *|FNAME|*

Summer time is here, and we're excited to finally have warm, sunny weather in Chicago! We've got a lot to get ready for this fall, including Label Expo America and some exciting product development, so keep an eye on our future newsletters to hear more!

Since we know how much you love our InfoBYTES, we thought we'd see what you guys want to hear about! We welcome your suggestions for topics, trivia bits, or just interesting (and maybe not well known) facts about the print industry or anything that strikes your interest! If you have any ideas you'd like to send our way, its easy: just reply to this newsletter! We will read all of your replies- I promise!

Monthly Focus: Defect Mapping

Defect Mapping is a flexible, easy to use software module for the Guardian PQV that helps operators monitor job quality and eliminate defects.

By detecting and recording defects early in the printing process, the Defect Mapping software makes it easy to correct defects post-press. It provides a true report of defect free products once job auditing is complete. Automated monitoring of product quality throughout the production process helps ensure that quality products are delivered to your customers. This increases their satisfaction and improves your bottom line.

Label Expo Series Trade Shows, 2016

Printers and converters across Central and South America have shown great interest in PC Industries’ intelligent and automated inspection systems at Label Summit Latin America. The Guardian LSI was PC Industries’ product highlight, providing printers and converters with automated defect detection capabilities at a low investment. In addition, the excellent networking opportunities PC Industries saw at the show are continuing to pay off. We’re looking forward to continuing this trend at Label Expo Americas in September!

For the upcoming Label Expo Americas show, we will highlight our latest defect detection technology, which allows high speed inspection without sacrificing resolution. We hope this showcase will spark your curiosity, so make sure to visit us at booth 1411 from September 13-15 in Rosemont, IL!

June 2016 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, we will dive into some surprising pharmaceutical and life science statistics.

  1. Pharmaceutical Development: Getting a drug on the market proves to be a difficult battle. One drug out of approximately 5,000 to 10,000 that makes it to the preclinical testing will be approved to be sent on the market. | Source: Klees JE, Joines R. Occupational health issues in the pharmaceutical research and development process: Occup Med 1997;12:5-27.
     
  2. The Rarest Disease: Ribose-5-phosphate isomerase deficiency, or RPI deficiency, is the rarest disease in the world, with only one reported case discovered in 1999 through MRI and DNA analysis. | Source
     
  3. “Made in America?” Nearly 40% of drugs taken by Americans are foreign, and 80% of active pharmaceutical ingredients used in drugs manufactures in the United States come from abroad. | Source

Stepping up from simple web viewing…

Web viewers are the perfect way to implement basic inspection capabilities in your quality control process. PC Industries’ viewers are equipped with high resolution cameras which take snapshots of the web at various positions. With the included HD monitor, the operator gets clear images of the web, and can more easily see any defects, registration problems, or other results of process errors that are present.

The Graphic-Vision® GV series web viewers are easy-to-use and economical web-viewing systems that help identify press-defects. PC Industries standard web-viewing systems are also capable of decoding and displaying 1D and 2D barcodes for easy review.

… to automatic defect detection solutions.

For increased inspection power, efficiency, and accuracy, intelligent inspection systems are a must. These systems provide automatic defect detection and advanced capabilities such as barcode grading, dimensional measurement and gauging, and sequential data verification.

PC Industries’ Guardian LSI is an affordable, entry-level, full web automatic defect detection system. It detects and highlights typical defects such as ink splashes and spots, registration errors, missing labels, unremoved matrix, and more.

For printers looking for more capabilities and power, the Guardian PQV offers full featured inspection. The system finds smaller defects and higher speeds, and provides all the advanced features listed above.   By alerting the operator of defects automatically and immediately, the defective product can be minimized, ensuring continuous and measurable quality, customer satisfaction, and a rapid ROI.

PC Industries will present their high speed inspection capabilities at Label Expo Americas

At this year’s Label Expo Americas, we will be presenting our leading edge capabilities which allow for high speed inspection without sacrificing resolution.

This leading edge performance is made possible through the latest high-speed, high-resolution line scan cameras, optimized algorithms for print defect detection, and powerful solid state LED lighting modules.

Defect Mapping

Efficient quality control with PC Industries’ Defect Mapping software

Defect Mapping is a flexible, easy to use software module for the Guardian PQV that helps operators monitor job quality and eliminate defects. By detecting and recording defects early in the printing process, the Defect Mapping software makes it easy to correct defects post-press. It provides a true report of defect free products once job auditing is complete. Automated monitoring of product quality throughout the production process helps ensure that quality products are delivered to your customers. This increases their satisfaction and improves your bottom line.

Inspect: Automate Defect Detection through Defect Roll Mapping

defect_map_illo2Setup is as easy as capturing an image from the press, training the system, and beginning inspection. On systems equipped with PDF Check, the golden image from the press can be verified against a customer approved master document before inspection begins.

During inspection, the Defect Mapping software will record defects by lane and footage for each roll or sheet. The on-screen grid display provides a graphical representation of the location of defects for each lane, with color-coded indication of the severity of each defect. The operator can view the Defect Map history and accept or reject defects while the system still provides 100% inspection. Defects are displayed side-by-side with the master image for easy comparison. The operator can easily train the system to ignore repeating, non-critical defects for a more efficient run. These settings can be saved and retrieved for later runs of the same job.

Once the job is finished running, the Defect Map can be output to an enhanced PDF report, which logs key job information, images of each defect, and the corresponding master image. The Defect Map can also be saved and automatically transferred to an Edit Workstation, Audit Rewinder, or other finishing machine.

Edit: Remove Defects Before They Reach the Rewinder with the Editing Workstation

To enhance quality control, information collected from the press run on the Defect Map can be edited at a dedicated Defect Map Workstation, which can be located anywhere in your facility. With the Defect Map Workstation, the Defect Map is automatically transferred once the job is complete. The operator can confirm or remove defects from the Defect Map before the job is sent to a post press process for defect correction. The productivity of the slitter/rewinder is improved by eliminating unnecessary starts and stops due to non-critical defects. Editing workstations can accept information from multiple presses, and feed multiple slitter/rewinders.

Audit: Finish with Perfect Product using the Control Workstation

The Defect Map Control Workstation integrates with nearly any finishing machine, including slitters and rewinders. The system includes the timing circuitry and output controls necessary for machine control, flagging or marking devices, or defect diverter timing. Additionally, for sheet-fed and similar applications, sheets can be sorted based on several criteria, including position of defect on the sheet and type of defect.

In a typical rewinder application, the Control Workstation will signal the machine to decelerate and stop the defective print at the splicing table or other preferred location. Placement is very accurate, even at high speeds. The defective label is displayed for review on the monitor, allowing the operator to toggle between the sample and master display and magnify defects.
