The EyeC Proofiler is a complete range of offline inspection systems that help companies check the quality of all types of printed samples. Designed for print shops and their customers - such as companies in the pharmaceutical, consumer and luxury goods, tobacco, food and beverage industries - the EyeC Proofiler brings security, efficiency and flexibility to QC checks. By verifying print quality and ensuring content integrity, this print inspection system helps companies cope with strict requirements, and catch print defects before they generate losses and damage their image.
The EyeC Proofiler combines the power of intelligent software with the performance of a high-resolution scanner. The inspection system digitally compares the scanned samples against the signed-off proof (typically a PDF file). The operator can easily check deviations and make sure that the samples’ quality complies with requirements. The inspection is simple, fast, impartial, and reproducible. Results are fully documented for perfect traceability.
At the print shop, the EyeC Proofiler can be used to check the first print, perform regular inspections while the press is running, or verify quality before shipping material to customers. As a result, printers are sure - without the need for a second pair of eyes - to set up the press properly and run the job correctly the first time. Potential problems are detected and corrected earlier on, which in turn reduces wasted material, avoids costly reprints or reworks, and ensures customer satisfaction.
In the incoming packaging materials lab, the EyeC Proofiler allows users to perform reliable and efficient incoming quality control. Companies can be sure that their quality standard has been met, they uphold a consistent brand image, and that their packaging quality complies with strict regulations. Users avoid costly product recalls while keeping up with tight production schedules.
Every EyeC Proofiler comes with a very fast, high-resolution scanner used to obtain high-quality images of the print samples. Thanks to a technology patented by EyeC, the system automatically locates every sample or every “up” in a repeat, and verifies their content against the signed-off proof (typically a PDF file). Texts, graphics, color deviations, printed 1D and 2D codes (barcodes, data matrix codes, QR codes), as well as embossed and printed Braille are all checked for on all of the scanned samples in one inspection cycle.
The EyeC Proofiler identifies all typical defects with high precision, such as color deviations, mis-registers, press contamination, filled-in characters, hickeys, poor quality codes or Braille points. Performing a check against the approved artwork, it also provides reliable content verification in any language and prevents job mix-ups.
In addition to ensuring process security, the EyeC Proofiler offers a fast solution for quality control. Thanks to its high level of automation and performant hardware, the EyeC Proofiler drastically reduces inspection time. The customer proof is automatically loaded based on the entered job data. Pre-defined parameter settings allow it to adapt to the inspection sensitivity for the different products’ requirements in one click. Even composite jobs, for instance, front and back labels, can be checked against their corresponding PDFs in one click.
The EyeC Proofiler simplifies your quality checks. Its intuitive user interface helps perform a reliable inspection easily and is available in major languages. Just a few steps are required to perform full print sample testing: Scan the samples, load the files, start the inspection, evaluate the deviations, and save or print the report.
