Proofing your design will guarantee no cylinder or plate defects

This article details the impact proofing your design will help to guarantee no cylinder or plate defects on your product. 

A printer can often spend as much as an hour proofing a job before going into full production on a pharmaceutical label. VeriFlow is one of four applications that make up our ImageFlow software suite. 

 

There are a number of sources for problems:

  1. An in building up the artwork for the actual printing plates.
  2. An operator mounting the wrong plate or cylinder for the job. 
  3. A plate or cylinder that has been damaged may produce a repeating defect. 

100% Print inspection means proofing labels should be simple!
The printer needs a fool proof process to check each label for plate issues or even translation issues from the one up design to the plate design. VeriFlow allows a user take an image from a scanner or from an inspection system on a press and compare each label against the one up design.  

Key features include:

  • Multiple label browsing.
  • Step through each difference and record if accepted or rejected.
  • Export complete report to excel for validation and quality audits.
