EyeC updates inspection systems

The German developer EyeC, which makes print inspection systems, has updated two of its offerings with a faster version of ProofBook whilst making Proofiler suitable for pharmaceutical workflows.

ProofBook is designed to inspect multi-page documents from A6 to A3 at up to 600 dpi

The new version of ProofBook is said to be up to five times faster than the previous version. ProofBook is designed to inspect multi-page documents like brochures, prospectuses, books and catalogs. The new version can scan up to 20 pages a minute at 300 dpi. It uses a duplex scanner with an automatic feeder that can take up to 200 pages. The system scans and inspects documents from A6 to A3 at up to 600 dpi and can pull in paper from 35 to 128 gsm. It compares the front and back of each page against the approved PDF template and shows the operator any suspicious pages for more precise examination. The system can also handle multiple languages.

The print image quality can be checked at any time and the inspection results traced with the inspection report generated at the end of the inspection. It can also be used as a flatbed scanner to pull random sample inspection of folding boxes, labels and flexible packaging. There are further software options for reading 1D and 2D codes.

Dr Ansgar Kaupp, CEO of EyeC, says that it can be used to check all sorts of print samples, adding: “This offers attractive cost advantages and simplifies the inspection process.”

Meanwhile, EyeC has also updated its Proofiler offline inspection system to version 3.4 to meet the latest requirements for data integrity, data security, and audit trail during inspection of pharmaceutical packaging.

Pharmaceutical users need a job number to document the inspection and the system automatically records all data from any scanning process, including all scanned images, before showing them on screen to prevent anyone from manipulating the data. Users have to fill out a commentary to explain the reasons for multiple scans and changes to parameter sets and there’s a Double Check workflow feature to ensure that a second operator checks the results.

The audit trail saves all the inspection data needed for future audits and cannot be altered. However, it is built as a clearly structured CSV file and can be filtered for categories and evaluations. EyeC has also improved the interface so that operators can quickly see any problems.
