WST OBC4-60 Opto-Barcode-Control System
The WST OBC4-60 Opto Bar Code Signature Reading System is used in gathering machines and saddle-stitchers to identify signatures or entire stacks that are faulty themselves or have been loaded incorrectly. It requires only 3/32″ (2 mm) height bar-codes.
A central computer is responsible for the administration and communication within the network. Make-ready is very simple and is done by only one operating button. The WST system is developed to read the 2/5 interleaved bar-code, the 100% protection for this investment. At the time of pulling the signatures Bar Code readers scan the printed Bar Code. The Bar Code is compared to one previously taught or entered via the keyboard. If any differences are detected the wrong signature will either be ejected or the machine stopped, depending on the system used.
