Germany-based print inspection systems manufacturer EyeC has unveiled new automated inspection systems to ensure cigarette and tobacco packaging meets quality and legal requirements.

According to the company, these systems allow cigarette and tobacco manufacturers to perform quality checks at each production stage to ensure product packaging fully complies with regulations.

EyeC’s health warning inspection tool (HWIT) is designed to enable companies to create a merged file with all compliant health warnings, which will serve as a reference during inspections.

The tool automatically enables manufacturers to assign and combine health warnings from Health Warning Document Libraries with their artwork files.

EyeC Proofiler product manager Oliver Peitzner said: “With the EyeC inspection systems and the EyeC HWIT, tobacco manufacturers can now easily automate their controls and avoid product recalls.

“They no longer have to perform tedious and complicated manual checks of health warnings.”

“They no longer have to perform tedious and complicated manual checks of health warnings. Our first product demonstrations have been a real success. The need for automation and risk reduction has never been so high in the tobacco industry.”

Manufacturers can also use the EyeC Proofiler Graphic to check print files automatically at pre-press, while the EyeC Proofiler controls printed samples during and after printing.

The company noted that its solutions can detect all items automatically, including text, graphics, 1D and 2D codes, health warnings, and their rotations in a single inspection cycle.

Based in Hamburg, Germany, the company offers file-to-file comparison for artwork revision control and prepress applications, as well as print-to-file inspection systems for press sample testing. It also provides print quality control for folding cartons, labels, leaflets, or flexible packaging.
