EyeC, which develops print inspection systems, has partnered with the Polish company Versor Engineering, a manufacturer of folder gluers, to integrate the EyeC inspection systems in Versor’s folder gluers and sorting units.
This includes a pre-feeder module called Versor Inspector, which was shown for the first time last month at the Fachpack show in Germany. It uses the EyeC ProofRunner in-line inspection system. The pre-feeder unit can be connected to any folder gluer to convert it into an inspection solution for folding cartons.
The system inspects 100% of the production and compares it against the signed-off proof, making it suitable for use for most packaging materials for pharmaceutical, cosmetic, toiletry, and branded products. It can run at up to 300mpm and can detect all relevant print defects on the carton and uses the folder gluer’s existing ejection device to reject any defective item.
Dr Ansgar Kaupp, CEO of EyeC, commented: “Two Versor Inspector are already perfectly working at customers’ sites and a third installation is about to take place. The market is now asking for this new technology and ready to benefit from its flexibility.”
Versor Engineering will be hosting an open event next week from October 15th to 26th at its production site in Bydgoszcz, Poland. You can find further details on the folding systems at versor.pl and on the inspection systems at eyec-inspection.com.
