BOBST gets a prestigious accolade for AcCUCHECK inspection system
For the third year in a row, BOBST has won a prestigious Embanews Award, this time for its ACCUCHECK in-line carton print and quality inspection system. Recognizing the best in packaging manufacture and the most innovative packaging technologies, the Embanews Awards are highly regarded in the Brazilian packaging industry.
Having won awards in 2011 for its ACCUBRAILLE in-line Braille embossing unit and in 2012 for smartGPS, its pre-makeready system for flexo printers, this year BOBST entered its ACCUCHECK in-line inspection system for folder-gluers. During the judging, the ACCUCHECK system was chosen as an award winner in the ‘Machines and Systems’ category. ACCUCHECK is able to identify a range of print and print related defects including hickeys and spots, as well as colour variance down to a level of 1 Delta Ec, helping carton makers ensure consistency of product in-house and helping brand owners ensure consistency of image across all their packaging. The system also identifies missing or defective text, can spot print defects on codes such as EAN/UPC, colour or pharma codes, can recognise physical defects of the carton such as scratches or rubs, and can identify inaccurate die-cutting. ACCUCHECK has been designed for BOBST MASTERFOLD and EXPERTFOLD folder-gluer models to ensure that any non-conforming carton is ejected without reaching customers’ packing lines.
