AVT – An array of solutions
USA • At Labelexpo Americas the manufacturer of systems for print inspection, print process control, and quality assurance, will showcase solutions including digital press inspection and control, inspection for labels and packaging web applications, and next-generation cloud-based automation solutions.
Among the premieres is the Helios Turbo HD inspection system for label and narrow web applications. Another Helios family member – Helios D, an automatic, 100% print inspection solution designed specifically for digital printing – also will be introduced. It It supports all stages of digital production workflow, including identifying missing nozzles, ink dripping spots, and colour changes in real time.
AVT also will showcase partner-specific solutions, such as its Helios S Turbo, which is integrated onto the HP Indigo 8000 narrow web press and Apollo 20K integrated onto the new HP Indigo 20000 wide web press. Incorporated into the press’ rewind section, both Apollo and Helios support inspection of any material, surface or reverse print. For digital inkjet press vendors AVT offers the Jet-IQ, a closed loop quality engine that works in synergy with press controllers to maintain exemplary print quality, offering full connectivity to all steps and solutions of digital inkjet printing.
Another debut is iCenter, a cloud-based web application for setting quality standards and automation of quality workflow process across multiple sites. Quality standards need only be set once per industry, product type and brand owner. The system then automatically applies the correct job-specific quality standards. Another quality standardization tool is AVT’s Offline Setup, which enables enhanced setup consistency and suitability between operators, as all settings can be controlled by one operator for all AVT systems. Also premiering is the in-line spectral measurement platform SpectraLab ll offers new levels of automation, introducing enhanced in-line to offline colour measurement correlation.
