Flexible print mark detection for identification of the cutting position

Wrapping machines use rolled-up packaging materials, with the cutting position indicated by a print mark on the film. Detection of the print marks is necessary to prevent defective products and increase productivity. Even at very high speeds, KTS contrast sensors detect grayscale variations between the mark and the background on matte, shiny, or transparent surfaces.
