Inspection solutions for metal sheet decoration

  • Maximum throughput of high-quality products
  • Enhanced quality of metal sheet printing
  • Reduced waste and increased yield
  • High level of customer satisfaction

High quality in metal sheet decoration at fast production speed

Metal sheet decoration is a complex process that places high demands on printing, coating, and material integrity. A whole range of defect sources, such as color deviations, printing defects, contaminations, edge defects, and material defects, can significantly impair the quality of the final product. One of the biggest challenges, however, is to achieve high product quality at a fast production speed. 

Our inline printing and coating inspection solutions ensure both 100% quality control and process optimization at maximum throughput.

Flawless coating of metal sheets with automatic quality inspection

Coating and metal sheets

In the coating of metal sheets, reproductions due to unsaleable materials, low throughput, and high material waste lead to an increase in production costs. Therefore, only flawless-coated sheets may be processed in the printing press. Already in the raw material processing phase, our CoatSTAR inline inspection system detects defective plates and ensures that they are removed from production. Throughout the production process, CoatSTAR automatically records data on coating quality, plate edges, and weld areas. This data can then be further used either for internal process analyses or as proof of quality for the customer. CoatSTAR meets the highest quality standards and its modularity makes it suitable for any machine.
