Print inspection in the cable industry
What does the print inspection mean?
It is a separate device for checking the printed string on a fast moving fiber. It is mainly used in extrusion lines when checking the printed text on cables. The device contains a so-called “head” with a camera that is directed over a moving cable. Thanks to the high-speed line camera we are able to scan the monitored text and evaluate it further on a PC.
What does it solve?
- checking the presence of the text
- checking the “leaking” of the text
- comparing the scanned text chain with the desired one
