AVT strengthens partnership with Gallus at Innovation Days 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Hod-Hasharon, Israel AVT (Advanced Vision Technology Ltd), the world leader in print inspection, print process control and quality assurance, introduced a groundbreaking press control and quality assurance solution for digital inkjet presses at Gallus Innovations Days, a special three-day event held at the Gallus Ferd. Rüesch AG facility in St. Gallen, Switzerland September 20-22.

Named PIQ-C (Picture Image Quality Control), the new jointly developed quality assurance solution is integrated into the Gallus Labelfire 340 digital label printing press, which is built by printing press manufacturers Heidelberg and Gallus. PIQ-C is a print quality technology that works in synergy with the digital press unit controllers to maintain exemplary print quality, offering a comprehensive detection and correction capability. The close loop quality control system allows digital printers to gain a competitive advantage through consistent print quality throughout the print run at high speeds.  

In addition to PIQ-C, AVT also showcased its Helios Turbo HD solution on the Gallus Labelfire, showcasing high definition resolution inspection along and across the web at full press and rewinder speeds – all without sacrificing superb quality assurance and key applications such as inline barcode verification.  

The new Gallus Labelfire press combines the latest digital inkjet printing technology with the benefits of conventional printing and finishing technology. The digital converting system offers new standards for quality of print results.  

Jaron Lotan, AVT's president and CEO: "We are honored to be the press control and inspection solution partner of choice for the Gallus system, the recognized leaders in narrow-web and label presses. Our collaboration further showcases why AVT is positioned to lead the way in both digital and conventional printing quality control throughout the workflow process.”

Michael Ring, Vice President & General Manger Digital Solutions at Gallus states: “AVT is the perfect choice for this type of partnership. Their leadership position and in-depth knowledge in detection enabled us to create a new standard in IQ control for digital ink jet printing.”
