Maximize your yield: 100% inline inspection for metal decoration reduces waste and offers a complete quality and process control even at full production speed.

Improved Efficiency in Metal Sheet Decoration

DecoSTAR is an inline inspection system to ensure 100% quality control for metal printing on steel and aluminum sheets. Using high-efficiency LED illumination, the system reliably identifies color deviations as well as edge and material defects. Through its high form-fit with a vast degree of freedom, it is suitable for any machine in the market.

No defect escapes the DecoSTAR

DecoSTAR precisely detects all print, material, and dimension deviations; monitors the color fidelity, and ensures the register accuracy. It even recognizes color bars automatically.

The system detects repeating and non-repeating contaminations or material defects. Due to high-quality defect data, the source of serial defects can be defined and removed. Defective plates can be ejected if required.

Automated report shortens defect lifetime

An automated report of serial defects to the operator ensures an immediate fault alert and shortens the lifetime of a defect. This leads to a cost-saving effect of the production since waste will be reduced and, therefore, yield will increase. It also provides an integrated inline color monitoring delta to ensure optimal print results.
