Print Detector: The easy way to verify the quality of printed images

Your Benefits

  • Quick and easy commissioning thanks to simple teach-in
  • The sensor is able to recognize printed images reliably, even in poorly lit conditions and at speeds of up to 4 m/s
  • Adaptation to different application requirements: With various sensitivity levels available, the sensor can easily detect whether printed images are present or distinguish between good and bad printing quality levels, for example blurry serial numbers
  • Cost-effective solution for automated printed image quality control


Print Detector: The easy way to verify the quality of printed images

The Print Detector is a scanning opto-electronic pattern sensor for verifying the presence and quality of printed images such as serial numbers and best-before dates. A reference printed image is taught in, then compared with the printing result later on in the process. The sensor uses the sensitivity setting to detect whether a printed image is missing or has only been partially printed. This allows defective products to be rejected automatically at an early stage.
