QLink workflow is opening up opportunities in synchronization, data handling and defect editing

BST eltromat has acquired a stake in Nyquist Systems, deepening their relationship through an existing sales cooperation.

The two companies have had an ‘intensive sales cooperation’ for four years, with the inspection systems in Nyquist Systems’ TubeScan family said to complement BST eltromat’s product portfolio for quality assurance in packaging and label printing. These inspection systems – distributed exclusively by BST eltromat – fit into BST eltromat’s existing offering for narrow web printing processes. This also applies to the new QLink workflow, which is opening up opportunities in synchronization, data handling and defect editing.

Previously, the companies have collaborated to install more than 800 TubeScan systems for the narrow web label and packaging sector worldwide.

Kristian Jünke, BST eltromat managing director, said: ‘Our strategic partnership, which has a long term orientation, is pursuing the aim of promoting the continued success of the TubeScan family developed and produced by Nyquist, and thus to assure our joint market leadership.’

Dr Stephan Krebs, managing director at Nyquist Systems, added: ‘The close collaborative partnership with BST eltromat, as part of its new stake and the exclusive sales agreement, offers Nyquist Systems a strong global presence and the ability to implement projects quickly for customers all over the world.’

Hans-Peter Stockkamp, global sales director at BST eltromat, said: ‘On the wide web market, we have long been known as a supplier of a comprehensive solution portfolio for quality assurance in all print methods, ranging from web guiding and register control systems and various entry-level video technologies for web monitoring, up to and including the high-end quality assurance systems of our iPQ-Center. With the addition of the TubeScan family and the related breadth of the product range and the specialist expertise, we are able to assume a similar position on the narrow web market. This means that we cover almost all requirements of label printing and narrow web packaging printing.’
