Mitsubishi Sheetfed Technology at drupa 2012 to Emphasize Quality, Sustainability
Diamond Eye-S has a printing defect check function and a function to control colors through real-time density measurement. Line sensors located near the sheet read color bars or entire printed images. Based on the printing characteristics of the press, Diamond Eye-S compares prepress image data with the actual image data read by the sensor and automatically adjusts color density to reach the target.
A lock-on function tracks target density from the beginning to the end of printing. Automatic controls are tracked in real time on the operator console touch screen. Operators are freed from having to pull samples during print runs or manually perform ink key adjustments.
Press demonstrations, conducted in English five to six times a day, will focus on the environmental and economic benefits of the ecoUV system and the productivity- and quality-enhancing advantages afforded by Diamond Eye-S. Mitsubishi will highlight the application of these systems to other Mitsubishi sheetfed press models, including the Diamond V3000LX and Diamond V3000TP. Information on Mitsubishi’s newspaper presses, commercial web presses and corrugating machines will be provided in panel displays.
