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 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
