As print quality has continued to increase, calls for improved detection capabilities have also grown.
The Truepress Jet520HD is preloaded with JetInspection, software that is capable of performing highly comprehensive real-time inspection of high-quality variable images across all pages, in addition to of course providing conventional processing of OCR fonts and decoding of bar codes. As well as significantly reducing cost and time requirements, JetInspection supports the development of new printing applications.
The Truepress Jet520HD is equipped with JetInspection, its own specially designed, dedicated inspection system. JetInspection can be controlled directly from the operation panel of the Truepress Jet520HD. Even during printing, the operator is alerted by a warning light if any defects are detected and images of the defects and their positions can be checked in real-time via the operation panel and network. It is also possible to automatically create files for defect image data and link to postpress using printouts and CSV files.
Inspection is highly detailed. It is possible to detect everything from OCR fonts, decoded bar codes and missing dots to foreign substances, color variations and improperly output text.
Defects are displayed in an inspection results screen, making it easy for operators to spot them. Operators can also register printing data and the base color of the paper in advance. This helps prevent false positives and improves the accuracy of defect detection.
In a dual simplex configuration, the two printers usually used for the front and back sides can both be operated independently as front side printers. With this configuration, it is possible to perform separate inspections for each printer.
When performing conventional overprinting, if the printing data is first captured via camera and preregistered, it can also be used during inspection of the overprinting. This allows the advance detection and specification of various problems that often escaped conventional inspection, including marking and inclusion of foreign particles in the paper of the initial printing.
Linking with EQUIOS maximizes the performance of the Truepress Jet520HD and helps to achieve more consistent, accurate and worry-free production. It also enables inspection logs to be shared with EQUIOS.
Inspection records including defect information, OCR text, and the results of decoding barcodes are sent back to the EQUIOS print management system, where they can be saved as logs.
