Paper Abstract

We have developed an automatic inspection system for industrial printing applications. This system can discriminate shading unevenness from natural shading gradation of a printed character, and evaluate the degree of any unevenness. The system consists of a host computer, an image memory, an image processing unit, and a numerical processing unit. The image processing unit detects the shading distribution in printed characters input to the image memory. The numerical processing unit quantitatively evaluates any shading unevenness. This system achieves high-speed inspection (0.5 seconds/image) by adopting dedicated hardware and multiple microprocessors.
