Zone 1: Digital Packaging – With variable data, digitally printed on packaging is on the rise. Lake Image will be showcasing its latest range of solutions for reading, grading and verifying barcodes, QRcodes and text elements as well as for detecting print defects such as streaks, hickies and voids and print registration issues for a variety of flexible packaging applications.
Zone 2: Variable Data Labels and Security Printing – Variable data and barcodes on labels such as tax stamps, pharmaceutical and authentication labels are now critical for many anti-counterfeit and traceability applications such as track and trace systems. Similarly, many security documents and paper have unique identifiers which need to be tracked and verified to prevent criminal activity and ensure process integrity during complex, multi-step production processes. Lake Image will demo its industry winning Discovery MaxScan solution for inspecting, reading, tracking and verifying variable codes on a variety of challenging substrates including highly reflective tax stamps for out of sequence, missing or duplicate labels as well as for positional and print defects issues.
Zone 3: Transactional and Direct Mail – The full Discovery platform will be demonstrated, including a comprehensive range of verification, inspection and integrity software tools to ensure mission critical documents and mailings are always 100% correct. Sequence check, data matching and presence and absence software tools provide variable data verification from page to page printing including duplex operations.
Zone 4: Loyalty, Gaming and Plastic Cards – A variety of inspection solutions will be on display including card number verification, missing/duplicate card detection, scratch off verification, pin number legibility, pin and account number reporting, sorting/batching and database integrity reporting. Other requirements such as card/carrier matching and magnetic stripe reading are also available.
