QuadTech to highlight portfolio for color control and waste reduction at ICE Europe 2015

Friday, March 06, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Sussex, Wiscounsin - QuadTech, Inc. will present its portfolio of print quality and waste saving solutions to packaging printers and converters at its stand (hall A6, stand 672) at ICE Europe 2015 (10-12 March, Munich Trade Fair, Germany).

The QuadTech stand will highlight automation technology for flexo, gravure, and offset packaging applications. The easily integrated systems includes in-line inspection, spectral color measurement, and register control solutions that can be applied on virtually all types of packaging substrates including paper, foil, metalized, and polyethylene and polypropylene films.

“There is constant demand for improved print quality that can be achieved in a cost-effective way,” said Stephan Doppelhammer, QuadTech Market Manager for Packaging. “With ICE Europe being a key exhibition for the converting industry, it is an ideal platform for us to reach out to the market and update them on the affordable and time-saving solutions that we offer. We can help converters to meet these demands with our automated solutions by streamlining operations, reducing waste and increasing turnaround times.”

Solutions for high quality, repeatability and waste reduction

QuadTech’s Color Measurement System with SpectralCam™ automatically analyzes, captures and reports color deviations in ?E values that the operator can see in real-time. The QuadTech Color Quality Solution enables the export of spectral data from QuadTech’s in-line color measurement technology to press-side ink recipe software. Then, if required, the necessary ink corrections are generated and a new recipe is accurately formulated and dispensed. The automated, integrated system results in less downtime and reduced waste, and offers assurance of precise color quality and consistency throughout the press run, from press to press and plant to plant.

The QuadTech Inspection System provides complete quality assurance as it inspects 100% of the web, 100% of the time. Able to detect any defects regardless of color or location—with the press running uninterrupted at normal print speeds—the system offers increased productivity and greatly reduced waste. Solid-state lighting produces perfect and consistent illumination, enabling the system to see the printed product at its lowest level of granularity, offering consistent, predictable results.

Another solution for converters is the QuadTech® Web Viewing System, which can be used as a stand-alone system or in conjunction with the Inspection System. The equipment provides real-time digital viewing of the moving web, and has an intuitive touchscreen interface and job presets, offering complete ease of use. This results in faster job setups and increased time efficiency for the operators, helping to deliver error-free packaging with minimum waste at maximum speed.

QuadTech® PDF Verification is a software add-on that allows printers to catch faults before the print run, helping to reduce waste by offering absolute repeatability and perfect quality. In addition, the software automatically stores each job, providing a solid audit trail for enhanced accountability.

QuadTech will also highlight the Autotron™ 2600 with ClearLogic™ Register Guidance System, a cost-efficient tool for minimizing waste and improving print quality that can be used for a variety of materials including foil, film and paper, as well as for non-print processes such as die-cutting.

Adding traceability and accountability to the production process by storing both live and historical data, the QuadTech® Data Central® for Inspection enables analysis at the job, product, or plant level, and the data can be accessed from anywhere within the network. The QuadTech® Waste Management System can also work alongside this for ultimate productivity, using the data to cut costs and waste by automating finishing equipment and precisely identifying defects.
