Uptime Advantage

  • Simple system set-up helps reduce changover time, providing maximum production line uptime
  • Integrated lighting takes the guesswork out of system configuration, helping to eliminate fake negatives from changes in ambient lighting

Built-in productivity

  • Configurable outputs including warnings, product eject triggers and line stops help identify and resolve issues immediately
  • Quickly identify the root cause of printing errors by reviewing the improper code images stored on the system controller

Code Assurance

  • Automatic code detection reduces the need for manual inspection, freeing operators to focus on more critical tasks
  • Configurable settings include reject threshold percentages and cumulative errors to meet customer-specific quality and operational requirements

Simple usability

  • Easy to install with mounting bracket that helps ensure the camera is properly positioned relative to the print surface
  • Single vendor for printer and verification components consolidates system performance to a single point of contact
