Standalone machine dedicated to the inspection and control of printed sheets ,

Axode SheetControl benefits from the very latest real-time technologies , combined with the company's R&D design experience of over 30 years.


This unique solution on the market allows multi -format document control both in terms of quality (color printing, security marks, perforation, etc.) and personalization (variable data, images, etc.). Thanks to its mechanical design, this machine allows one-sided or two-sided inspection of sheets in high resolution.

The Axode SheetControl includes a conveyor based on toothed suction belts as well as an electronic management so that the movement of the sheets remains extremely stable. This feature ensures high-precision image quality for reading data and inspecting very small details.  

The configuration of the Axode SheetControl is adjustable according to the final specifications of the customer.

This concerns its integration within a line (for example at the output of a printer) or its autonomous use (with feeder and stacker option). Likewise, it is possible to add customization equipment such as inkjet printing, laser perforation or engraving, application of labels, etc.


As a rule, the Axode SheetControl is equipped with the Axode 180neo2 or

Axode 1080neo2 depending on the client application.
