Guardian Inspection Systems®

Are the Guardian Systems right for my company?

The first step to defect-free runs is determining where a vision inspection system will best fit within your company's workflow. Many companies are looking for a catch-all solution that runs on the press, examining the entire web, all of the time. This is known as 100% inspection. The Guardian PQV and Guardian PQV Mini provide true 100% inspection for pharmaceutical applications, as well as applications across the entire printing industry. What's more, PC Industries' 100% inspection systems provide you with the security you need, creating encrypted, secure documentation of defect history and operator action. On the press, where performance, security, and simplicity are a concern, the Guardian PQV is the answer.

Off the press, the Guardian OLP will protect you from propagating defects on the press by catching them before they are even run. If your company has ever accepted a customer order, you're aware of the number of steps that must be done before a press run. Any one of these steps can introduce a large variety of time and money wasting errors. By protecting yourself with the Guardian OLP, you can catch and correct these errors before you even send the project to press. Additionally, the Guardian OLP can be used to verify product coming off the press, making sure that any errors introduced during printing will be caught before costing you more time and money.
