Apollo 20K ensures consistent print quality on every job, significantly increasing overall press productivity and short runs printing. Users benefit from fast ROI and save valuable time and resources with exceptional fast and easy press set-up and deployment. In turn, customers benefit greatly by reducing waste, resources and production costs, while preventing customer rejections.
Apollo 20K delivers 100% quality assurance and print process control, with full support of all web presses, substrates, and applications. The system detects and alerts on a wide variety of print defects, visually indicates the precise location and type of each defect, marking them for further analysis, archiving and reporting, to achieve 100% quality on every print job.
Fully-automated, the Apollo 20K inspection process provides an intuitive user interface, equipped with an easy-to-use online guide, minimizing job set-up time, and detecting critical defects in real time. The system categorizes defects according to defect type, with easy on-screen view, and indicates the precise defect location on the full repeat image.
Supports all web press substrates and applications, including transparent and flexible substrates, foils, paper and cartons, used in the wide web packaging industry.
100% verification of printed barcodes; checks/alerts for barcode decoding, quality and ANSI grading.
All required setup can be done on one package and automatically set to “step and repeat” on all other packages. The system enables setting different sensitivities/profiles to different regions in the package, for enhanced detection in key areas, or to reduce sensitivities in less critical areas.
Separate control of each illumination source (diffusive, reflective, backlight), is relevant when more than one illumination option is installed (optional Translight and Reflective modules) and enables best image quality and inspection on various jobs and applications.
Built-in, on-line monitoring of “good to ship” material, ensures sufficient good material is printed prior to the next job change.
Fast, easy generation for seamless set-up and improved control of quality standards.
With tools to make every part of your packaging workflow better, getting started has never been easier.
