Maximize print quality on corrugated boards

Displays, so-called shelf-ready trays, promotional displays for point-of-sale, or even secondary packaging are being printed more and more elaborately to contribute to a special shopping experience. The quality of the printed image on a corrugated boards is decisive for its appeal to the end consumer: printing errors, such as missing color or even a missing printed image, register errors, stripes, and similar defects lead to rejects and rising production costs. The automatic print inspection helps to avoid these defects and reliably ensures the quality of corrugated boards.

Flawless flexographic and digital printing

Corrugated carton board

Corrugated boards are traditionally printed using the flexographic process, whereas digital printing is becoming more popular as the demand for individualized packaging and faster changeovers increases. Printing defects in both printing methods lead to waste and rising production costs. The inline inspection system CartonSTAR ensures consistently high product quality by reliably detecting relevant printing defects in real-time. In addition, defective corrugated sheets are automatically sorted out at an early stage. CartonSTAR is also flexible and customizable to meet nearly any printing application and has a high form-fit factor to fit any machine in the market.

Production analytics - Data-driven production efficiency

The web-based production analytics platform allows you to check the system status of all production lines at a glance or analyze production data in detail. With the quality management system, you analyze historical data, monitor current inspection data in real-time, and identify future trends in your production process.

Optimization of production

Dashboards allow you to compare production line and product data onsite or remotely, providing key insights for optimization. This enables you to make informed professional decisions along your value chain to increase the product quality as well as profitability. You can continuously track the progress of optimization measures and present them with visualized advanced reports.

Early detection of production defects

Detect and quickly identify the cause of threshold value violations at every stage of production with live status information and automatic alerts. As a result you can quickly resolve production defects, shorten downtime, and reduce production costs.

Predictive maintenance

You can prevent potential system failures by analyzing real-time data from the sensors and monitoring systems. This allows proactive planning of maintenance, based on the actual condition of the machines, instead of following a fixed schedule. This data-driven approach saves costs through reduced downtime and increased overall productivity, as well as longer production line life. 

Your benefits

  • Time-saving multi-line overviews, one view for all quality-related information
  • Minimize downtime by monitoring system health data
  • Faster reaction to quality issues with quality data monitoring
  • Fast elimination of production defects, reduction of production costs
  • Improved maintenance for reduced downtime, higher overall productivity and longer production line life

Key features

Overview on production data and plant status

Web-based solution, no client software installation required

Department oriented dashboards, customer specific adaptations are possible

Live insights from real time data
