EyeC Introduces New ProofBook


Printers and their customers can inspect multi-page documents like brochures, prospectuses, books and catalogues with greater speed and precision, using the new ProofBook. Inspections are performed five times faster than with previous model due to a new high-performance scanner and an improved algorithm for locating defects.

The new EyeC ProofBook scans and examines up to 20 pages a minute at 300dpi. The system compares the front and back of each page against the approved PDF template and shows the operator the suspicious pages for more precise examination of the deviations.

The intuitive user interface helps perform a full inspection in just a few clicks. The print image quality can be checked at any time and the inspection results traced with the inspection report generated at the end of the inspection.

The EyeC ProofBook has a duplex scanner with an automatic feeder that can take up to 200 pages. The system scans and inspects size A6 to A3 documents at up to 600dpi and can pull in paper from 35 to 128g/sqm. Moreover, regular operation as a flatbed scanner allows random sample inspection of folding boxes, labels and flexible packaging. With additional software options, the system also reads 1D and 2D codes.

‘With the EyeC ProofBook, our customers can check all sorts of print samples quickly and precisely,’ explained Dr. Ansgar Kaupp, CEO of EyeC GmbH. ‘This offers attractive cost advantages and simplifies the inspection process.’
