Print and Label Inspection

Printing & Webbed Materials

High speeds for quality control

Speed is everything in the printing industry: Newspaper and magazine printers move printed pages along at up to 100 km/h. If you examine a color printed image, then color fidelity is an important element for the system's cameras. Beyond this, high sensitivity in the camera and the ability to handle high speeds is essential for precise and reliable examination of webbed materials for flaws in paper, wood, textile, glass and similar materials.
Basler cameras are extraordinarily well-suited to the different applications involved in the printing and webbed materials field. Among their features:
  • High speeds
  • Strong sensitivity
  • High color fidelity
  • Cable lengths up to 100 m

Typical areas of use and suitable cameras
