Trust in DotScan

You can be confident of the highest quality control, therefore eliminating the chance of incorrectly embossed cartons ever reaching the consumer.

Why our customers love DotScan…

“DotScan has increased our efficiencies when checking Braille. For example, if we have a 32-up job, this would normally take 30 minutes to manually check as we have to have an independent check step in the process. However, with DotScan, this check takes the operator closer to 15 minutes”
