Always keeping an eye on quality with ELSCAN

Modern printing presses permit higher production speeds with higher throughput and efficiency. From printing speeds of 30 - 50 m/min, however, it is no longer possible to visually assess the print quality fully in roll-to-roll production. The use of web monitoring systems like the tried-and-tested ELSCAN system becomes absolutely essential.  


Sophisticated image processing, combined with two high-resolution cameras – offered by the ELSCAN web monitoring systems. They allow representation of printed images on moving webs with greatest detail and color fidelity. The cameras can be moved manually or via a motor to approach positions with the highest precision and display the corresponding images on the monitor.

All ELSCAN variants feature the patented "dualView" technology, using two cameras. The zoom or wide-angle lens is activated depending on the zoom level. During zooming, the system switches imperceptibly between the cameras. It is thus possible to display the printed images at multiple resolution. This unique, patented "dualView" concept allows nearly lag-free zooming up to the highest resolution.
