PrintVision Helios II
The Print Vision/Helios II can be installed on a printing press, a slitter rewinder or other types of finishing equipment. When installed on a rewinder, PrintVision/Helios II controls the rewinder forming a combined automatic inspection station. The system automatically inspects 100% of the labels or packages and stops the rewinder on defect location, enabling cleaning of the defected parts before it is sent to the end customer. When installed on a printing press, the system works as an on-line quality assurance and process control solution, alarming on any evolving print problem, recording every relevant defect, and enables using this information for downstream cleaning using the optional WorkFlow link module. The system detects defects such as missing labels, defects in characters areas, color variations, misregistration, missing print, spots, imperfect matrix peeling, die cut registration and more. A reporting mechanism provides defect information for either down stream repair on the finishing machine or quality report for the end user.
