Global Vision joins Enfocus Crossroads programme and will provide quality control tools for Enfocus customers

September 30, 2014 – Montreal, CANADA and Ghent, Belgium – Global Vision and Enfocus today announced that Global Vision has joined the Enfocus Crossroads programme as a Technology Partner. The partnership kick-off is marked by the introduction of the Global Vision BarProof PDF barcode verification module, an off-the-shelf tool that smoothly integrates with the Enfocus Switch workflow automation solution.

"Global Vision is a renowned provider of industry leading prepress quality control tools for artwork, text, Braille and barcodes. We're very pleased to welcome them as a complementary technology partner. With the launch of the BarProof configurator, we will be able to offer significant time savings to Enfocus Switch users when it comes to barcode verification in prepress workflows." says Angelo Manno, Global Accounts Manager Partners & OEM, Enfocus.

Global Vision provides automated quality control solutions designed for prepress and printers to verify artwork, barcodes, Braille and text to ensure accuracy of components within packaging artwork. BarProof is the industry's first barcode verification module that automatically locates, decodes & grades barcodes in PDF files to provide detailed reports on barcode quality, including bar width reduction and magnification values.

Enfocus Switch is a modular and open software solution that is built to give organizations of all sizes a seamless way to manage the documents they need to support their business. Switch easily integrates with an organization’s existing systems and connects the third-party applications they use to create, produce, and share documents. Once connected, Switch becomes the glue that seamlessly pulls these applications together into a customized production workflow. No matter who creates the document, what format it is in, or how it will be output, the workflow connected by Switch ensures users can process it in less time, with less effort and at less cost.

"With thousands of artwork files to be processed each day, time savings is of the essence for prepress and printers,” explained Reuben Malz, President, Global Vision. “With the BarProof configurator for Enfocus Switch, we are providing further automation capabilities to Enfocus Switch users to verify barcodes within PDF files and proofs as part of their prepress quality control while reducing overall inspection times."

Crossroads is a tight-knit network of Enfocus Switch users and vendors. Switch easily integrates and then automates functionalities derived from applications like Global Vision's BarProof. A visual flow editor assists users in easily creating automated workflows from scratch or import predesigned flows from the Enfocus Crossroads community website.

Global Vision will be releasing future configurators for other applications including ArtProof, the first Mac-based artwork inspection solution, to automate artwork inspection for prepress PDF files including booklets.

Global Vision and Enfocus will be showcasing the new BarProof configurator at Graph Expo 2014 in Chicago, IL September 28 - October 1, 2014.

Accuracy of Contex Wide Format Scanner, Global Vision Proofreading Technologies Essential for Packaging Quality Control

Rockville, MD ­­-- September 26, 2014 --­­ Contex, the world's leader of wide format scanning and imaging solutions, today announces its collaboration with Global Vision, the world leading developer of proofreading technologies at Graph Expo in Chicago, September 28-October 1, 2014, Booth #343.

At the Expo, Global Vision will demonstrate its latest proofreading and quality control solutions for the print industry including the ScanTVS print inspection solution with the Contex HD Ultra i3650s scanner. This combined solution is used by major printing companies and brand owners worldwide to inspect labels, cartons, inserts and press sheets, ensuring accurate representation of the printed information. The solution reduces the chance of costly errors by enabling users to check hard copy proofs for print defects, missing or broken elements, and color differences.

"Graph Expo attendees can see firsthand how the Contex/Global Vision solution picks up deviations between PDFs and final print runs, which can be costly for the printer and its customers if left undetected,” comments Steve Blanken, General Manager, Contex Americas. “It’s a powerful tool to help all manufacturers reduce time to market."

"Since the largest source of product recalls is due to copy-related errors in printed materials, printers rely on our proofreading tools to avoid these kind of mistakes. We look forward to demonstrating our solutions at Graph Expo,” comments Reuben Malz, President, Global Vision."

Quality Control in the Printer Marketplace

Global Vision solutions with Contex wide format scanners solve the problems that stem from the multilayer production process and the risks associated with multiple hands having input into the development of product materials. ScanTVS provides quality control to ensure that content is kept accurate with all parties involved.

Global Vision chooses to bundle the HD Ultra with ScanTVS because of its best-in-class image quality and efficient scanning. The HD Ultra delivers 12-inch per second scanning speed (monochrome) and an unprecedented 901 monochrome and 597 color scans per hour.

Quality control Braille for pharma packaging

Setting Braille on pharmaceutical packaging poses specific quality control challenges. Global Vision’s software ensures the precision of Braille embossing on cartons and labels. As of October 2010, legislation requires that the product name, strength and dosage appear in Braille on all pharmaceutical packaging. » More...

Quality control Braille for pharma packaging

The EU has led the way in this endeavour, but other countries are quickly following suit; Brazil has already implemented a national requirement for Braille labelling on all pharmaceutical packaging. Braille is not a language: it is a tactile way of reading and writing text for blind and partially sighted people. The Braille cell consists of six dots, positioned like the figure ‘6’ on dice, in two parallel vertical lines of three dots each. All Braille characters are combinations of dots within this framework. There are many specifications for setting Braille type; however, the Marburg Medium specification, as recommended by the EU, is the industry standard. Marburg Medium precisely dictates the distance and elevation between Braille dots to ensure readability (see Figure 1).

Methods of applying Braille

The variety of carton and packaging types plays a key role in how Braille is applied. The two most common methods for applying Braille to packaging are embossing and screen-printing. Embossing is mostly used on cartons while screen-printing is primarily used on labels. Both techniques pose their own QC issues. The challenges for pharmaceutical packaging are numerous. Firstly, blind and partially sighted people need to be able to read the Braille text – the goal of Braille legislation is to assure that vital information is accessible to everyone. When embossing a carton, each Braille dot needs to be high enough to be easily read, but not too high that it perforates the packaging. In addition, whether embossing or screen-printing, the manufacturer must ensure that Braille dots are not malformed or missing. Spacing is also critical for accuracy. One misplaced or malformed dot in a standard six-dot Braille cell could turn a 40mg dose into a 50mg dose, leading to costly lawsuits and product recall expenses – and so the need for true Braille quality control becomes crucial.

Braille inspection technologies

The two types of technologies for inspecting Braille are optical and physical measurement. Optical technologies check Braille quality by casting a light on the Braille dots and measuring the resultant shadow. The benefit of an optical system is speed. The drawback is that Braille dot shadows vary depending on the packaging’s background colour. Detecting and measuring shadows on a dark background

makes validation difficult. In the case of screen-printing, clear glue dots may not cast enough of a shadow (or one at all) to enable accurate measurement. The more reliable method for measuring Braille dot height is to use a handheld calliper, similar to those used by the aeronautical and automotive industries for measuring small parts. The advantage of callipers is that they are highly precise. The obvious disadvantage of manual calliper inspection is that it is time-consuming. To ensure validation, a true Braille QC system needs to be as quick as the optical method and as precise as the calliper measurement.

Global Vision’s Braille QC solution

In response to the drawbacks of optical and physical measurement, Global Vision developed BraillePointTM, an automated Braille inspection system that provides the speed of optical measurement and the precision of calliper measurement. Global Vision’s BraillePoint is the only system on the market that ensures the precision of all embossed and screen-printed Braille found on cartons and labels. Global Vision’s software takes hundreds of thousands of readings per second and compiles them into complete dot specifications. Height, width, spacing and other critical information can then be easily verified by looking at the on-screen representation. Readings are independent of colour background and can be easily validated.
