Whilst print inspection systems are standard practice in flexible packaging, labels, security print and continuous stationery, the corrugated industry has had to await the arrival of a new development from TecScan. The BoardWatcher is said to be an easy to use, cost effective retrofit that can “really make a difference“ to the consistency of flexo print quality on board. Specifically developed for the corrugated industry, the new system monitors printed sheets throughout the run. It features the latest in camera technology and monitors for missing colours, and print to print register During printing, any carton that is found to be out of specification is ejected. If more than four consecutive boxes do not meet standard, a signal can be sent to stop the feed, enabling an operator to correct the print.
