MANILA, April 20, 2023 ― FUJIFILM Business Innovation Philippines Corp. launches a new optional*1 inspection system (hereafter, “Print Inspection System”) for the production color press, Revoria PressTM PC1120, which caters to the high-end production printing market. The system automatically inspects printed material to detect defects and will be available to the Asia Pacific*2 region in stages starting from April 2023.
The Print Inspection System reduces lead time to delivery by improving efficiency and consistency in the quality control process of printed materials, without sacrificing the productivity of the Revoria Press TM PC1120.
During printing, the Print Inspection System automatically inspects printed materials for dots, stains, and pinholes, that are as small as 0.3 mm, as well as streaks, dog ears, registration misalignment, and variations in color density. This eliminates the burden of time-consuming visual quality checks while maintaining a consistent quality level for printed materials produced by different operators.
The sensors in the Smart Monitoring Gate D1 which is connected inline to the Revoria PressTM PC1120 scan every sheet during printing with a high resolution of 300 dpi. The Smart Print Inspector software installed in the Inspection PC then compares the scanned image with the original RIP data which serves as a reference, thereby detecting printing defects in real time. Operators can easily check the inspection results from the screen of the Revoria FlowTM PC21*3 print server.
*1: Existing users can upgrade the print server to use the new inspection system.
*2: Please check with your local FUJIFILM Business Innovation office on the availability of the devices.
*3: The new inspection system is only available on Revoria FlowTM PC21 print server.
