Lake Image Systems, the worldwide leader in vision control and verification systems, has developed a new Return-On-Investment Calculator which accurately determines the payback period and accumulated savings produced by Lake Image Systems on-press print quality inspection, defect detection, and data verification solutions.
Announcing the new calculator, Lake Image Systems Vice President Pat Hoskins said: “The Lake Image Systems Return-On-Investment Calculator quickly and accurately shows the value of automatic quality inspection in the roll-to-roll printing environment. The calculator deals entirely with hard data based on each client’s specific operation. Printers considering a quality inspection system can enter data themselves, and weigh different operating scenarios to test the value of the quality system. Individual savings depend upon variables such as press width, press operating speed, annual press utilization, run lengths, substrate square footage, makeready, waste, and other factors—all of which are considered by the calculator. The Lake Image Systems Return-On-Investment Calculator provides a quick and accurate assessment to printers weighing the merits of doing on-press inspection versus inspection on the rewinder or in the finishing area.”
