Spektr, one of the leading label and packaging printers in Belarus, has installed the EyeC ProofRunner 100 percent web inspection system for automatic quality control of printed labels.
Serving the label market for more than 20 years, Spektr is known as a premium label segment supplier and one of the leaders of the Belarusian market in the volume of labels produced with a high degree of finishing. The printing house operates mainly with Bobst and Omet presses with up to 12-colors flexo units serving customers in CIS countries and Western Europe.
The EyeC ProofRunner Web 450 inspection system was installed on the Bobst Expert M3 flexo printing press. The system provides constant monitoring of the printing process and identifies various types of label defects, the criteria for which are determined in the system settings, and instantly alerts the printer if any faults are detected.
Installed on a printing press or a rewinder, the EyeC ProofRunner Web uses a compact, high-speed line scan camera to continuously acquire a high-resolution image of the entire web. A high-performance computer system identifies all printed items on the web and performs an intelligent comparison of each printed item against the customer proof.
‘We have a long-term relationship with Spektr in providing raw materials for printing,’ commented Kiryl Zubrytski, director of Paritet System, a local EyeC partner in Belarus, who led the sale. ‘It is a great honor for us to be more than just a supplier but also the first to install an EyeC inspection system at one of the largest printing houses in Belarus.’
