Integration of Image Quality Inspection Equipment into Production
Abstract:The benefits of objective image quality analysis are well accepted. The stand-alone image quality analysis systems that are common in R&D labs have been making the migration to production environments. IQ inspection stations are often set up for end of line testing in printer manufacturing lines. However, it is often desirable to incorporate image quality instrumentation into the production line in a more integral fashion. Integration allows for seamless product and data flow, which increases throughput and efficiency. The ability to integrate a system into production requires common communication protocols between the system and controlling software packages, as well as reasonable options for system control via independent external software regardless of platform.
This paper includes a description of several options that are available for the integration of a commercially available image quality inspection system into production lines.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
