BST North America – Complete range of solutions for the narrow-web market
USA • The company will showcase its comprehensive range of quality assurance products for label printing and the narrow web market at Labelexpo Americas 2018 (Stand 837).
The product fields 100% inspection, web monitoring and web guiding will be the main topics of BST North America and its subsidiary AccuWeb.
Quality control systems
The PowerScope 5000 100% inspection and web monitor solution features a very high level of operating convenience. It also features a wear-free electronic zoom and outstanding image quality thanks to the high-resolution camera and LED flash. On the same moving web demo, the updated Super HandyScan 4100 will be introduced. While the camera unit, monitors, cables and synchronization remain the same, it features a new state-of-the-art controller including an updated user interface, startup screen, and as an added benefit every controller includes TeamViewer for remote access. The Shark 4000 Lex inspection system detects even smallest defects in real-time and is designed for use on rewinders and printing presses. The TubeScan eagle view combines 100% print inspection with web monitoring, enabling seamless printing error monitoring. With the new QLink Workflow, the company has expanded its TubeScan product portfolio and has concentrated on synchronization, data handling and error editing.
The iPQ-Check module for 100% web inspection is part of a modularly-constructed system for quality assurance. This also comprises iPQ-View covering digital video web monitoring tasks and iPQ-Spectral, a tool for inline spectral color measurement. iPQ-Workflow integrates these three modules into a comprehensive quality assurance process.
Web guiding for process control
On display will be the CLS Pro 600 digital line and contrast sensor and a CompactGuide with a Wide Array sensor. With its wide field of vision, and wide measuring range, manual adjustment is a thing of the past. The CompactGuide can be configured flexibly. The EcoGuide is particularly economical to operate and this web guiding system can also be individually configured.
Special highlight will be the new AccuNET controller from AccuWeb. With intuitive operation, faster response and a higher-resolution graphical display, the flexible touchscreen of the new contoller offers maximum operating convenience. It is fully compatible with all point source and WideArray edge detectors.
