07 Sep 2017

The range of investments included Rotoflex VLI, Mark Andy Performance Series P7 with an inline EyeC ProofRunner 450

Canadian printer, Label Technology, has made a wide range of investments including a Rotoflex VLI, Mark Andy Performance Series P7 with an inline EyeC ProofRunner 450.

The VLI 700 purchased is an inspection, slitting and rewind system for tension-sensitive materials, integrated with an EyeC ProofRunner 760 system for advanced print quality verification. 

EyeC ProofRunner 450 that monitors print quality, allows higher print speeds, reduced waste, and increased operator efficiency. The P7 and VLI are both in full operation and running daily production.

Dave Bankson, president and CEO of Label Technology said, 'Our team initially saw a live demonstration of the VLI with an EyeC ProofRunner inspect, slit and rewind unsupported film at a very impressive speed at Labelexpo Americas. As we were looking to add another finishing solution to our flexible packaging capabilities, this combined solution was an ideal fit, and has provided throughput improvements since its installation, performing at speeds of up to 500m/min with 100% inspection. We are extremely pleased with our two new Mark Andy and Rotoflex investments with EyeC ProofRunner inspection systems.'

Designed for high-speed production of conventional labels, film and other tension-sensitive materials, the VLI is available in web widths from 330mm up to 700mm and the capability of reaching speed of 610m/min. Installed with the Rotoflex Report Management System (RMS), real-time production data is collected from multiple finishing machines to a single interface for KPI such as run time, defects, production volume and scrap generation, as well as comparing outputs of multiple machines.

The EyeC ProofRunner uses high-speed line scan cameras to continuously capture a high resolution colour image of the entire web. EyeC proprietary hardware and software then combine to identify and verify all printed items on the web automatically. Texts, graphics, colour variations, 1D and 2D codes are all inspected on 100% of the printed web.
