BST North America – Inspection and web guiding at Labelexpo Americas

The new Pwerscope 5000 visual inspection system as shown at recent Labelexpo Americas

USA • The company introduced four new products to the market and also showed the entire portfolio of products for narrow web applications.  The new Powerscope 5000 visual inspection system has a resolution 16 Mb camera capable of viewing a print area as large as 4” x 3” (100 mm x 75 mm) and magnifying register marks and other small print details up to 35x magnification. EagleView is the newest model within the Tubescan 100% inspection product line. It has two cameras in a single housing, whereas one camera provides 100% inspection of the material, while the second camera, which is on a moving traverse, simultaneously provides highly magnified images of any area or detail within
the print repeat.

BST North America also demonstrated its AccuWeb brand WideArray edge technology. Accuweb’s dynamically compensated edge detectors offer a wide sensing range using either ultrasonic or infrared sensing technology. WideArray edge detectors feature large detection ranges to accommodate variations in web width. Web widths can be changed on the fly, eliminating the need to physically reposition edge sensors.

The final new product to be highlighted was the iPQ workflow, a complete package of products that allow linking of machines, departments and processes into integrated quality assurance systems. It is available for use with the companies Shark 4000 LEX and iPQ-Check 100% inspection systems.
