Baldwin To Highlight Data-Connected UV, LED, Corona, Color and Inspection Technologies At Digital Packaging Summit

Press release from the issuing company

ST. LOUIS, Missouri — Baldwin Technology Co. is a sponsor at this week’s Digital Packaging Summit, where the company’s experts will showcase its entire suite of data-connected technologies that work in harmony to produce superior labels and flexible and corrugated packaging.

They range from corona surface treatment and UV and LED curing to 100% inspection and defect detection/removal, to in-line color measurement, along with advanced real-time and historical process monitoring via Baldwin’s cutting-edge AMP Internet-of-Things (IoT) software platform.

The Digital Packaging Summit, taking place Nov. 8-10 at Ponte Vedra Inn in Ponte Vedra, FL, will bring together senior managers and business executives who want to understand how current and future digital production printing technology, software and solutions will impact their business and investment decisions. The summit, presented by Printing United Alliance and Napco Media, offers strategies-level insights into what printing and converting industry leaders should do to improve and optimize their business.

Baldwin’s experts will be on hand to inform DPS participants about the AMS Spectral UV X Series™ line of LED-UV curing solutions, which are #1 worldwide in flexo, offset and digital, offering the highest curing speeds, reliability and choice in multiple format sizes. The ROI for switching to LED-UV has never been greater, and there is no better way than an LED press retrofit to invest in sustainability and the safety of the working environment for the future of packaging.

Also in the spotlight at DPS will be Baldwin’s Guardian PQV 100% Print Inspection technology, which provides easy-to-use variable content verification. The PQV can accept up-front data files containing all expected content and verify that every code or personalized data is printed correctly. Where codes are defective, the PQV can provide a report identifying the failed codes so they can be reprinted. Guardian PQV eliminates every print error with a more efficient, accurate, data-connected inspection workflow and provides complete print quality verification from prepress through production, reporting and archiving.

Finally, DPS will set the stage for Baldwin to share the details of its revolutionary Industry 4.0 platform, AMP IoT, which quickly connects the data from machines, accessories, MIS software and workflow to obtain a wholistic view of production and OEE, regardless of make, model or vintage of the assets. Printers and converters can access “real-time” production data, insights and analytics in the context of their customers and jobs, and set thresholds and alerts to improve quality, productivity and minimize downtime.

“Data and automation from connected machines and devices will drive the next great advantage in the graphics industry. This week at DPS, in addition to the proven advantages our leading technologies in surface treatment, curing and inspection can offer printers and converters, we are excited to showcase what augmented Industry 4.0 intelligence can do to drive new levels of overall equipment efficiency and quality in labels, flexible and carton packaging, and corrugated printing,” said Baldwin Chief Marketing and IoT officer Steve Metcalf. “It is great to be back at shows and events, and the sold-out nature of the DPS conference is a good sign for the industry.”
