Unilux has launched Mantis web viewing system for narrow web printers.
This inspection system is suited for printers who need flexibility and have limited mounting space. The most significant innovation of this system is the integration of the processor and camera into a single unit that can be placed anywhere on the press and moved easily without the need to re-route wires.
For added flexibility, any monitor can be connected via HDMI and the system is controlled using a widely available wireless remote that most operators are already comfortable using. A UV model is available for the inspection of cold seals, UV-visible inks and optical brighteners.
Mike Simonis, Unilux president, said: ‘We’re always on the lookout for ways to bring true innovation to our customers, especially when those products result in more efficient quality control. Mantis, with its more flexible, user-friendly approach, has the ability to change what printers expect from their camera-based systems.’
Tom Herold, VP sales, North America, said: ‘Unilux inspection strobes are the perfect complement to the micro view provided by camera-based inspection systems. With the addition of Mantis, we are now able to provide customers with a more holistic view of print quality.’
