At this year’s Labelexpo Americas in Chicago, Ill., EyeC showcased its range of print inspection systems for label and flexible packaging. In addition to its own booth, EyeC also exhibited an in-line system with Deacro Industries for the first time.

As an in-line inspection system, the EyeC ProofRunner checks the print quality of texts, graphics, color, and foil embossing over the entire production run. As for the EyeC Proofiler Graphic, it is used for automated PDF-checks at the prepress stage and can be integrated for further automation into existing workflow software, such as the Esko Automation Engine.

Very satisfied with this event, Dr. Juergen Klicker, CEO of EyeC-America, confirmed several orders for ProofRunner systems afterwards. Most of these systems are combined with the EyeC Quality Link option, saying this option aims to help printers save the inspection data from the press, evaluate them at a working station and use them to remove any print defects at slitter-rewinders prior to shipment.

Founded in 2002 in Hamburg, Germany, EyeC intends to ensure product quality throughout the entire printing process – from the first artwork file to the finished product. The product portfolio includes file-to-file comparison for artwork revision control and prepress applications, as well as print-to-file inspection systems for press sample testing and print quality control of products such as folding cartons, labels, leaflets, or flexible packaging.
