Leader in Print Inspection & Quality Control Also to Display Comprehensive Solutions for Flexo Printing, Including Offline Proofing Systems
Hod-Hasharon, Israel – For the first time at LabelExpo Asia, AVT will demonstrate Helios D (digital), a high-end 100% automatic inspection system specifically designed to address digital printing challenges such as missing nozzles, ink drips and color uniformity – all in real time. AVT, the world leader in print inspection, print process control, and quality assurance solutions, will be located at Stand B18 during the show, which occurs December 5-8 in Shanghai.
Helios D works seamlessly on any application and substrate, including label stock, transparent film and even highly-reflective foil. Helios D automatically identifies defects like missing nozzles, spots, damages and color changes as soon as they occur. The result is reduced waste, enhanced production performance and comprehensive monitoring.
AVT also will show automation and workflow systems for traditional flexo printing amounting to start-to-finish print inspection and quality control solutions. For example, AVT’s well-regarded Offline Setup reduces inspection’s “human factor” through quality standardization and shortens setup time, resulting in reduced waste and streamlined setup workflows – all under the same global quality standards.
Then, AVT’s signature Helios solution provides 100% print inspection, helping ensure that all outgoing materials are within specification for customer satisfaction. Helios is trusted by printers worldwide, even in sectors where exemplary print quality is required to meet consumer safety regulations – such as the pharmaceutical and food industries.
For reporting purposes, AVT’s PrintFlow Manager ensures that production data collected from all platforms is presented directly to overseers. Production managers can monitor, analyze and control production quality right from their desktops.
The entire process is tied together by AVT’s Workflow Link, which serves as a bridge from press to rewinder, increasing line efficiency and productivity while stopping only for designated defects. Slitter rewinders can run at top speeds and, by selecting the extraction of only critical defects, rewinder stops can be reduced by up to 50%.
Finally, AVT also will showcase Offline Proofing for scenarios where in-line inspection isn’t feasible. For example, SolidProof ensures that no critical errors have been overlooked in the print production process, while SoftProof inspects artwork and digital files with pixel precision, detecting missing text and graphics, incorrect fonts and text size, broken type and color deviations. CloudProof is a collaborative, web-based upstream application that reduces approval cycles by sharing inspection projects.
According to Yair Shaharabany, President of Asia Pacific at AVT: "LabelExpo Asia provides an unrivaled opportunity to display our inspection and quality control solutions to many of the world’s fastest-growing print markets. We look forward to demonstrating our unsurpassed systems for both digital and flexo printing, which are utilized by customers around the world to ensure quality, reduce waste and streamline overall production efforts."
