AVT and Edale – Introduction of image-based pressure, register and inspection system
BELGIUM • The companies introduced a new jointly developed solution that follows the launch of Edale’s Autonomous inking impression and Registration (AIIR). The solution is integrated in Edale’s FL-3 and FL-5 flexo presses and incorporates camera technology from AVT that ensures a specific level of registration quality. After makeready, AVT’s 100% inspection system runs in the background, ensuring exemplary print quality.
AIIR functions as follows: Registration marks are printed on each station and fed to the AVT Helios S camera positioned at the end of the press. The camera analyzes the relative positions of the marks and sends necessary corrections to the respective print stations. Tracking software developed by Edale ensures that no additional corrections are made until the initial corrections have passed the camera.
