Erhardt+Leimer (stand 4D45) will exhibit its Smartscan system for print image monitoring in the field of label printing. In addition to a video function with zoom, it also enables 100% print image inspection, splice detection and detection of missing labels and unremoved matrix. The user can pick and choose the different functions required and combine them building-block-style into the perfect system for their specific requirements.
Thanks to a special illumination concept for inspection, not only can the process of setting up jobs be almost fully automated, but it is also possible to set up extremely reliable defect detection. The simplicity of the system is matched by the controls used to operate it, which feature a widescreen monitor with touchscreen functionality. During normal operation, the operator will usually only need to press two buttons after changing jobs in order to start the inspection.
Since the camera unit is housed in a compact enclosure, Smartscan can be retrofitted to existing printing machines and finishing machines.
The PA 62 is a two-channel measuring amplifier for connecting any load cells; it displays not only the sum signal but also the web tension on the left and right hand side of the web separately. The device can do without any fixed buttons; buttons for operation are displayed on the LCD display only when required. Besides the actual web tension it indicates a trend curve and alerts the operator if limits are exceeded. The inputs and outputs can be configured individually. The device also offers an Ethernet interface for process integration.
