Name change for EyeC in-line inspection systems

The EyeC ProofRunner Web checks the quality of printed web goods, such as labels, package inserts and flexible packaging

EyeC has changed the product names in its ProofRunner Product line, aiming to bring greater clarity to its ever-growing portfolio of in-line inspection systems that was established in 2006.

With a new name, the inspection systems EyeC ProofRunner Web, Sheetfed, Carton Folder Gluer, and Carton Sorter series inspect 100 percent of the run and contribute to preventing job mixes and defective print products. 

The EyeC ProofRunner Web series is an in-line inspection system that checks the quality of every type of printed web goods, such as labels, package inserts and flexible packaging. It monitors print quality directly on the press or on the rewinder. In contrast, the EyeC ProofRunner Sheetfed series inspects 100 percent of the printed sheets in the production of folding boxes and package inserts. The system is available for many offset sheet-fed printing presses such as the ones from Koenig & Bauer and Manroland Sheetfed. 

For 100 percent print quality control for cartons, printers can either integrate the EyeC ProofRunner Carton Folder Gluer into their folder gluer, or combine EyeC technology with a flexible pre-feeder module such as the ones from Kohmann and Versor. The system uses the folder gluer’s existing ejection device to reject any defective item. An alternative system for folding box inspection is the EyeC ProofRunner Carton Sorter series, which is installed on a sorting unit. The system inspects and sorts 100 percent of the folding boxes, without damaging them, before continuing to the gluing process. 

‘As a complete provider of print inspection solutions, we help our customers monitor the quality of their products in all stages of the production process,’ said Nico Hagemann, product manager for EyeC ProofRunner systems. ‘The focus is always on further developing our products and flexibly adapting our portfolio. This is why it was important to rename our in-line solutions – to make them easier to communicate to the customer.’
