OneBoxVision's print inspection system is a state of the art machine vision solution using advanced color trilinear cameras, solid state LED lighting, and  OneBoxVision's pipeline processor. Inspect 100% of your product in real time, improving productivity , reducing waste and eliminating customer returns. 

Operator assist

How does the system work?

External devices such as a  colored alarm light tower can alert an operator immediately when a defect is detected, according to pre-defined quality thresholds. The system visually indicates the position and the nature of all detected defects on screen. The operator can then address the problem, and correct the relevant defect reducing inline waste. ImageFlow automatically records the relevant defect information in the database reporting mechanism which enable easy tracing of the marked defects for later analysis and cleaning.  The software is capable of triggering taggers, marking devices or stopping a line in order to clean defective product. The system operation is very easy, performed in a guided sequence (wizard), intuitive, and is self-explanatory. Printing press operators  can view the web as much and as quickly as possible. The operator can select any point on the web and the update is instantaneous on a widescreen monitor with local control on a touchscreen.
