Axode Print Control

The most effective way to increase productivity by ensuring that printed documents are complete and error-free
Axode Print Control is a standalone module that combines the full range of quality-control applications required by the market along with substantial processing capacity and total ease of use. Installed at the output of continuous-feed printers, Axode Print Control checks each document in real-time and records any nonconformance, stopping the printing process if necessary.
Axode’s track-and-trace solutions are those moste extensively integrated by printer manufacturers.
Axode Print Control brings rapid improvement in reliability without requiring structural changes to existing printing lines, offering Axode’s expertise in variable data verification in one ready-made solution.

Intuitive to use: easy to implement and user-friendly, with a large touch-screen video interface that includes menus for print quality control and visualization of colour or black-and-white documents.

A wide range of quality-control applications: ensures that variable data is correct; verification of print output of laser and ink-jet printers (black-and-white and colour); front/back matching; full-page visualization; image capture and storage of detected faults; colour registration; and paper-stock control. Axode Print Control recognizes all key standard codes (OCR, BCR, 2D bar codes, etc).

Highly compatible and ergonomic: compatible with all continuous-feed printers: laser or ink-,jet, white or pre-printed paper, black-and-white or coulour printing. Non-disruptive installation at the printer’s output.

Rapid: handles printer speeds of up to 150m/min. The speed of processing and decision-making makes the module adaptable to the fastest pinters for documents of any size.

User-friendly: ability to view documents at high resolution on a large screen aides operators in monitoring production quality.

Flexible: databases allow the use of different widely used formats (Kern Mail Factory, Böwe One, Pitney Bowes Direct Connect).

Efficient: stores images of detected faults and saves job configurations.

Easy to configure: user-friendly touch-screen interface and tools for automated modification of parameters make it easy to change configurations as required.
