Grafotronic PHARMA2 | Re-inspection

The PHARMA2 Re-inspection is a new Bi-directional 200% Inspection machine. A servo driven linear buffer reversed the web for fault placement and re-inspection. The buffer movement is ultrafast and precise and guarantees no missed faults detected by the inspection system. Web tension and slitting is unaffected by the reverse movement in re-inspection mode.
