Lake Image DISCOVERY SmartPQ Inspection System —

The DISCOVERY SmartPQ system revolutionizes print quality inspection by offering 100% monitoring and detection of printing defects, a significant upgrade from traditional manual inspection and strobed video web viewing systems. This advanced technology provides comprehensive and automated defect detection across the entire web in high definition, even at high speeds up to 350 m/min, overcoming the limitations of conventional methods that only inspect small portions of the web. Key features of SmartPQ include:

  • Immediate identification of both random and recurring print defects on web-fed printing presses.
  • Automatic detection of various print defects such as misregistration, die-cut variations, matrix residues, smudges, streaks, creases, wrinkles, and color variations.
  • Prompt alerts to operators for repeating defects or when a defect reaches an unacceptable size, enabling quick corrective actions.
