The New LED12 makes it easier to see fine detail at high speed.

Unilux, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of stroboscopic inspection solutions, announces the new and improved LED12 inspection strobe, for fast, efficient inspection and troubleshooting in high-speed applications.

The LED12, a popular stroboscope for print inspection in mid- to wide-web applications where the ability to inspect across the web is critical, has been redesigned to incorporate the company’s latest advances in user controls. New features make it easier to instantly synchronize the strobe flash rate to motion for a perfectly still image even when speed fluctuates, while also allowing an operator to fine-tune the target inspection area for crisp, clear detail at high speed, anywhere on the line.

“Unilux engineers have improved the printing industry’s most powerful handheld inspection strobe by making it even easier to use,” said Mike Simonis, President of Unilux. “This redesign marks the next step for stroboscopic inspection by fully leveraging the power and controllability of LEDs, empowering customers to isolate fine detail faster with less effort.”

Unilux inspection lights use the stroboscopic effect to freeze images of sections of webs moving at full production speed, making the smallest of defects clearly visible. This enables operators to use their knowledge of the product and printing process to determine the cause of the defect, take appropriate action to fix the problem or stop expensive, value-added processes, and reduce waste.
