QuadTech to Introduce New Press Control Innovations at drupa 2012
QuadTech Web Viewing System can be used on its own or in conjunction with the 100% Inspection System for optimum error detection. It provides a mechanical zoom to show a repeating defect in a much higher resolution while the inspection system and press continue to run uninterrupted.
QuadTech Color Measurement System with SpectralCam can accurately calculate L*a*b*, ΔE, Density and ΔDensity at full press speed. This in-line system is extremely flexible with QuadTech’s patent-pending web stabilizer technology, which allows for precise spectral measurements on various substrates including film, foil, and paper. Advanced spectrophotometer technology enables the system to quickly detect and analyze colorimetric and density variations from predetermined targets. Consistent, fast, accurate color quality is guaranteed.
QuadTech Color Measurement System with SpectralCam HD introduces in-line high-definition dot viewing and web stabilization capabilities, facilitating easy on-the-fly detection of dot abnormalities such as pin-holing, bridging, doughnuts and halos. Images are captured at 2500dpi and are made instantly accessible through the ICON Integrated Platform.
Autotron 2600 Register Guidance System with ClearLogic provides accurate register control on any press which is highly beneficial to users of opaque, transparent and reflective substrates such as BOPP, metalized film, high-gloss cast and polypropylene. Using MiniCam scanning heads the process detects various pale and low-contrast marks with precision, significantly reducing make-ready waste.
PDF Verification enables a printed sample to be measured against the original approved artwork, preventing errors and identifying any press malfunctions. The software tool ensures perfect quality, minimizing set up and automatically storing each job to ease operator time consumption.
The Power of Better
QuadTech enables streamlined and flexible coordination between technology and operators by providing the QuadTech ICON Integrated Platform, a network-based centralized station which contains all previous job data. Manual re-entry is no longer needed and therefore set up times are reduced, increasing the efficiency of the workforce.
