The Forward Looking Impact
When making a final decision on an inspection system purchase, it’s important to look at how the long-term ownership of the system will affect your bottom line. Whether the price seems prohibitive or easily within your budget, a system that pays for itself in a reasonable amount of time is always a wise investment.
This month, we’ll discuss some of the long-term effects of the purchase, installation, and use of an inspection system. This will help narrow down your choices by allowing you to find a system that will not only fit within your budget, but your business goals.
Each month we present a new bit of trivia that we call an InfoByte. You can check out previous InfoBytes in our newsletter archive.
Lenticular printing is a process used to create images that appear to be 3-D or that change when the viewing angle changes. One of the ways this is currently done by printing images on the back of a series of tiny, lenticular lenses using an offset lithographic press. The ideas behind the current technology dates back farther than you might think.
In 1692, painter G.A. Bois-Clair produced the first 3-D (stereoscopic) image. He placed strips of two different images in the gaps between a series of opaque vertical bars. They were aligned such that when viewed at a certain distance, each eye would see a different, complete image, creating the illusion that the resultant image was 3-D.
