AlpVision has released the first version of a new system for quality control for the Cryptoglyph printed in varnish. The new tool enables a real-time and user-friendly assessment of the printing quality of AlpVisionâ€™s invisible marking flagship. The marking is typically printed in flexography and integrated directly into the varnish layer. The system comprises an iPhone and a custom box which is open on one side. The iPhone (5 or 5s) is used to run a quality control iPhone app that analyses the video stream in real-time. The main purpose of the box is to keep the iPhone at a specific distance and orientation in respect to the carton sample, while protecting the analyzed area from extraneous light. This new tool will be ready for shipping in Q2 2014.
