Half the Price of Conventional Model !
Toppan Forms Develops Character Recognition Inspection Equipment that Can Be Installed as an Add-on
Added Quality Management Features for Pressure Seal Postcard Production

March 28, 2014

Information Management Solution Provider Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. (Toppan Forms hereunder) developed an add-on "COREOPEX PX" character recognition inspection equipment for "PRESSLE" series pressure sealer postcard production machine. Control numbers printed on the front side of pressure sealed postcards and envelopes produced by PRESSLE, are compared with serial numbers and production list prepared beforehand to verify the possibility of processing oversight. The machine has a communication function that stores PRESSLE's pressure settings and inspection results simultaneously as text data. The add-on is installed above the PRESSLE unit. With the low price point of 1.95 million yen, the company expects users to increase significantly. The conventional inspection equipment priced at 4.4 to 8 million yen per unit was too expensive for wide adoption. Toppan Forms aims to sell 500 million yen of "COREOPEX" and other related products including the sealers in 2015 to data processing companies, and data processing division that conduct communication operation in the financial and securities industries.

Background

Recently, there is increasing demand to keep all production record to verify whether communications have been properly processed and issued due to the heightened awareness in quality among companies. More clients are considering strengthening their quality assurance system. However, there have been hesitations due to high price and large installation space necessary to allocate separate area for the inspection equipment. By providing low cost add-on inspection equipment that can be installed on the machine, the company expects to resolve this hesitation.

Features

  • 1. Low price inspection equipment at 1.95 million yen per set.
  • 2. The communication function allows to store logs of inspection result and sealer pressure setting value.
  • 3. Installation space is compact using the space above the sealer unit.
  • 4. 72,000 maximum pieces can be read per hour (All production record can be stored without reducing the sealer processing speed).
  • 5. Mails are read piece by piece enabling accurate number of pieces to be managed.

Future Direction

In addition to the current text data log storage function, the inspection equipment can store all image logs. Toppan Forms will support clients' quality management improvement activities, by developing inspection equipment that can be used not only for sealers but also a wide range of processing machines.
