eltromat launches new generation of 100% print inspection system

eltromat launched twin_check 2.0, it´s improved 100% print inspection system, for the first time at Labelexpo Europe in Brussels. The new camera unit doubles the resolution and leads to a brilliant image quality. And with the new illumination unit the customer is able to inspect on opaque as well as on high reflective materials. eltromat also experienced strong interest for the iPQ_solutions with its modular design approach. It allows the combination of web viewing, 100% inspection, spectral color measurement and workflow solutions to increase the productivity as well as the printing quality.

twin_check 2.0 is based on a new patented camera and illumination unit. The new RGB line-scan cameras come with triple line sensors with 4096 pixels each and a line frequency of 85 MHz. This results in a much better resolution and brilliant image quality. Another improvement has been achieved with regard to the illumination, which now allows best inspection results on different materials. "With only one illumination unit our customers are able to inspect holograms, all typical opaque and high reflective materials without pseudo errors," states Dirk Volkening, Product Manager at eltromat. The weight and size of the inspection unit has been reduced. Additionally, the camera and illumination unit can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.

This results in a market leading flexibility of machine integration. With this solution for print inspection eltromat responds to the needs of customers in the packaging and label, as well as decor and wallpaper printing industry.

The established webvideo_star, also on show, is now equipped with a new processing unit, which makes the system completely scalable. Customers can choose to add different modules such as a barcode or sample inspection system; or the webvideo_star can simply be upgraded with a complete twin_check 2.0 or the inline color measurement system inco_check. With the modularity of iPQ_solutions customers stay flexible and efficient because they only buy the hardware solution which their needs require.
