PV-Snapshot
High Speed Print Inspection

The PV SnapShot provides high speed, automated print inspection for continuous processes especially wire, cable, pipe, tube, hose and conduit. This will help you reduce costs in your production facilities through reduced rework and improved productivity.
The PV SnapShot 4500 uses a high-speed, color digital imaging system to capture real time images of cable markings. The digital images are enhanced, magnified and displayed on a monitor, enabling the operator or our “No Print Detector” to properly set up and monitor cable printers before poor print causes expensive waste.
The operator’s console can be located up to 200 feet or 60 meters from the Image Capture Station, allowing one operator to supervise two or three lines simultaneously.
