High Definition and Digital Print Inspection to Highlight AVT's Labelexpo Booth
AVT, the world leader in print inspection, print process control, and quality assurance, will introduce an extensive roster of new solutions to the North American market at LabelExpo Americas, Sept. 13 to 15 in Chicago. Located at booth 711, AVT enters the show as one of the world’s top automatic inspections solutions providers in the global labeling and packaging industries; over 50% of high-end inspection and quality assurance systems in these sectors are AVT platforms.
With more than 20 years of experience and more than 4,000 inspection system installations worldwide, AVT’s leadership status is bolstered by one of the print inspection industry’s largest R&D groups, as well as supplier partnerships with the most prominent names in printing, including key digital players such as HP Indigo, Landa and Gallus-Heidelberg.
LabelExpo Americas will see the North American premiere of AVT’s Helios Turbo HD, offering, for the first time, 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.
Leader in Digital Inspection: Helios D and Integrated HP Press Solutions
At LabelExpo Americas, AVT also offers Helios D digital press inspection system, an automatic, 100% print inspection solution designed to meet the specific needs of digital printing in the labels and narrow web markets. Based on AVT’s proven, well-established Helios product line, Helios D supports all stages of digital production workflow, including the identification of specific defects like missing nozzles, ink dripping spots, and color changes as soon as they occur. The result is reduced waste, enhanced production and comprehensive process monitoring.
At LabelExpo Americas, AVT will showcase its Helios S Turbo system, which is integrated into the HP Indigo 8000 high-speed digital press supporting inspection of any material, surface or reverse print. The system’s high resolution and high speed ensures print quality, data validity, barcodes and numbers tracking, as well as DeltaE color monitoring — all in one pass. Also presented is the Apollo 20K system, which offers 100% inspection and advanced workflow options for flexible packaging on the HP Indigo 20000 digital press.
Proven Inline Color Measurement Solutions
AVT will also introduce its SpectraLab II, a new generation of AVT’s in-line spectral measurement supporting nearly any application, including transparent flexible, paper, cartons, etc. SpectraLab II offers new compact design, advanced color workflow management and improved inline-to-offline measurement correlation. SpectraLab II also features enhanced color reporting capabilities, including real-time alerts to third-party reporting systems when colors shift out of tolerance.
Offline Inspection for Improved Quality Standards, Reduced Setup Time
AVT also offers offline inspection solutions that provide quality standardization and greatly reduces setup time. Customers can set and maintain quality standards across production operations as well as between different jobs and runs, reducing the “human factor” in the inspection process. Enhanced setup consistency and suitability between operators is assured, since all settings can be initiated by the same operator for all AVT inspection systems.
Another U.S. premiere is iCenter Platform, a next-generation cloud-based solution that provides solutions to set cross-site quality standards, auto-analyze PDF files for inspection, and extract business intelligence from the production floor with a seamless connectivity to MIS and prepress solutions for optimized automated workflows.
