The Proofiler Graphic checks artwork files typically a repro’d print ready file against the customer approved proof.

The Proofiler Content combines checking live text, graphics, Braille and barcodes in an artwork into a single examination. If adding or changing text in a  revision causes the text to reflow, a graphical comparison is overwhelmed with deviations but Proofiler Content has no such issues.

The Proofiler includes a scanner for comparing the printed sheet against the customer signed proof. Our scanners range from A4 to A0 and beyond.

The ProofRunner is mounted on a press, rewinder, slitter or folder gluer to perform 100% inline inspection of printed packaging materials.
