PIXA - Print inspection expert 

PIXA - 100% Print inspection for roll and sheets.

The PIXA is a complete turnkey machine vision solution designed for  100% inspection on  printed substrates. The PIXA  will detect defects and track them through the manufacturing process. Options for the following applications are available:

  • Flexible packaging.
  • Tags and labels.
  • Flexible circuits.
  • Metal decorating.
  • Glass printing.
  • Screen printing.

PIXA's algorithms are unique

The software will analyze the printed patterns, and based on configured guidelines optimize the inspection based on the content and color of the pattern.  The  pattern is analyzed in real time and anomalies segmented and classified.
