  • Patent number: 9762750
    Abstract: A method automatically parameterizes error detection of an image inspection system by a computer. The method includes digitizing a reference image in order to determine desired values and subdividing the reference image into homogeneous image regions with few edges, and inhomogeneous image regions with strongly structured image areas and many edges. Lower tolerance values for the homogeneous image regions, and higher tolerance values for the inhomogeneous image regions of the digitized reference image are determined by statistical image analyses. The determined tolerances are assigned to their respective desired values in dependence on a position of the desired values in homogeneous or inhomogeneous image regions. An inspection sensitivity is calculated from desired values and their respective tolerances. The parameters of the image inspection system are set with the aid of the inspection sensitivity configuration of the image inspection system using the parameters.

  • Patent number: 8887637
    Abstract: A color measurement on printed materials produced by a printing press is performed by at least a first color measuring device installed in the printing press and at least a second color measuring device. A signal is output by the first color measuring device in the printing press when the measured color values registered on the printing materials are located within a predefined tolerance limit for a predefined period and that, after the signal has been output, a color measurement on one of the printed materials thus produced is performed with the second color measuring device.

  • Publication number: 20120279410
    Abstract: A method for determining setting errors in a sheet-fed printing press includes recording a geometry of a printed sheet running through the printing press with an imaging system and comparing the recorded geometry with intended geometries for evaluation. An imaging system oriented substantially perpendicular to a sheet surface at least partly registers visible contours of sheet edges and conclusions are drawn, from measured deviations of the sheet edges in relation to intended contours, as to at least one of the following setting errors of the printing press: a faulty sheet transfer because of an incorrect setting of a gripper bar transporting the sheet, a lifting of the sheet off an impression cylinder because of an incorrect setting of blown air for sheet guidance, or an incorrect radius of the impression cylinder, for example because of incorrectly chosen underlays/cylinder covers.

  • Patent number: 8289575
    Abstract: A method for controlling color in printing technology machines, includes measuring color measured values without/with a UV filter and converting them with a computer to color measured values measured with/without a UV filter. The color measured values measured without/with a UV filter are recorded by a color measurement instrument on a substrate. The spectral remission values of the substrate measured with and without a UV filter are supplied to the computer and the computer converts color measured values measured without/with a UV filter to color measured values measured with/without a UV filter taking into account these supplied spectral remission values of the substrate, and uses them to control the color in the printing technology machine. A printing technology machine having a computer for carrying out the method, is also provided.

  • Patent number: 8154761
    Abstract: A method for color regulation of reproduction copies of a printing press prints a substrate, which appears dark in a standardized color measurement, with at least one printing ink which is lighter than the substrate. At least one color value of the printing ink is determined from a measured variable, and the color value of the at least one printing ink is regulated with the aid of a fixed reference value of a color locus in the color space which is lighter than the printing ink.

  • Patent number: 7830549
    Abstract: To perform a method for identifying color measuring strips having measuring areas on printed products, the color measuring strips are scanned with a color measuring instrument. The measured color values acquired by the color measuring instrument are stored in a computer and that the measured color values acquired are each assigned to a printing ink. A sequence formed in this way of printing inks is stored in the computer and then compared with color measuring strip types stored in the computer. The stored color measuring strip type having the greatest probability is then selected.
