AVT and Global Vision Collaborate to Offer Cutting-edge Offline Inspection Solutions for Printing Industry

  Hod-Hasharon, Israel, Montreal, Canada, April 30, 2015 – AVT, the world leader in print inspection, print process control, and quality assurance, is joining forces with leading proofing solutions provider Global Vision to offer advanced offline inspection solutions to the worldwide printing market. Under the agreement, Global Vision will provide AVT with a new software engine for its offline inspection solutions, which are customized to suit the specific needs of the printing industry and its varying production workflow setups and printing applications. The partnership also enables AVT to serve as Global Vision’s print market sales arm, and paves the way for these two key players to jointly develop unique inspection solutions for specific sectors, including the labeling and packaging marketplaces. The companies also will co-develop print quality assurance solutions that connect inline and offline inspection systems while providing timely, comprehensive reporting. Among AVT’s latest offline solutions is SolidProof, which provides 100% assurance for wide web, narrow web and sheet-fed applications, ensuring that no critical errors have been overlooked during print production. SolidProof automatically eliminates conversion errors and undetected defects during the pre-press stage, drastically reducing the need for manual inspection and bringing waste levels to near-zero. Other features include intelligent cropping and automatic alignment utilities, comprehensive reporting and multi-lingual inspection capabilities, as well as options for barcode and Braille verification and a 21 CFR Part 11 compliance module for the pharmaceutical sector. The partnership is seen as a win-win: it benefits both companies and their respective customers by allowing AVT and Global Vision to expand their customer bases and realize the benefit of their combined strengths. “Our partners at Global Vision...

Barcode Verification for PDF Files and Print – BarProof

BarProof  barcode verification solution builds quality into your process by taking it all the way upstream to your PDF files. BarProof automatically locates all barcodes on a label, carton or press sheet and grades each according to CEN/ANSI/ISO standards. Bar width reduction (BWR) and magnification measurements are also provided. BarProof verifies and decodes 1D and 2D barcodes including UPC, Data Matrix and QR. The BarProof module is available as an option with ArtProof, ScanProof. BarProof is the only barcode verification tool and decoder for PDF files that provides grading, bar width reduction and magnification measurements, guaranteeing scannable barcodes at the checkout counter.   Bar width reduction BWR is critical during the pre-press process in order to compensate for different packaging materials and ink spread during production. By verifying BWR values in PDF files upstream in the process, brand owners can be assured that barcodes will achieve expected quality levels   BarProof Barcode Verification Benefits: • Bar width reduction measurement • Barcode magnification measurement • Decode & grade 1D & 2D barcodes including Data Matrix, QR, MicroQR • Grade each barcode according to CEN/ANSI/ISO standards • Verifies and decodes linear 1D and 2D barcodes • Color coded pass / fail reporting for barcodes • 21 CFR Part 11 / EMA Annex 11 compliant • Integrates with ScanTVS print inspection solution   Barcode Grading Criteria: Decode – Checks if the scan line data can pass the reference decode algorithm Symbol Contrast – Checks the difference between the minimum and maximum reflectance of the scan line Minimum Reflectance – Checks that the minimu m reflectance is less than half of the maximum...

Braille Verification Tool – BrailleProof

BrailleProof is a Braille inspection and Braille verification tool that digitally inspects Braille text for added or missing Braille components, to ensure that the Braille matches the approved PDF.  BrailleProof also converts Braille components into readable text, ensuring accuracy of the Braille BrailleProof is designed to meet all Braille standards for pharmaceutical Braille packaging, including the Marburg Medium With BrailleProof, you can be rest assured that all Braille is accurate, readable and meets international standards, while eliminating manual checking, and reducing inspection times.
