The Accucheck system, distributed in South Africa by Beswick Machinery, enables packaging converters to drive quality, performance and productivity with complete control and 100% quality output, allowing them to meet demands for rapid and faultless folding and gluing.
Using a high-definition camera based on the Bobst Registron quality control system, the Each carton is scanned as it enters the folder-gluer, with the real- time image compared against the reference image. Designed for high levels of data flow received from the camera during production, Accucheck interfaces perfectly with the host folder-gluer and ensures any non-conforming cartons are logged and ejected.
The system automatically detects a range of print and print-related defects such as spots, physical defects such as scratches or rubs, inaccurate die- cutting and colour variations. Depending on defined settings, a defective carton can be allowed to continue or be automatically ejected without affecting production. Whether ejected or not, defects are recorded for later analysis.
‘Our machines are designed to give manufacturers the flexibility to do things you simply cannot do with other equipment – keeping our customers one step ahead of the competition,’ comments Jean-Pascal Bobst, CEO of Bobst Group. ‘The launch of Accucheck demonstrates our commitment to zero-fault packaging – we believe the technology will revolutionise the quality control process for packaging manufacturers. With innovations such as this, our customers can rely on us to maximise quality, performance and productivity of their production,’ he adds.
