Labelexpo Europe in Brussels marks the first major trade show since the start of AVT’s alliance with Erhardt + Leimer. A new joint portfolio of systems, born of AVT’s and E+L’s combined expertise, is being demonstrated at AVT's, E+L's and various partners’ stands throughout the exhibition.
AVT launched Helios S Turbo, an inspection system designed to help production lines reach maximum potential through, among other enhancements, increased printing and rewinding speeds.
Offline Setup, also new, is an automation tool that helps customers create quality standardization across their production operations, or to maintain quality standards between different jobs and runs. By standardizing quality thresholds and addressing the needs for production processes automation, the system helps raise the bar of overall
print quality. Offline Setup enables enhanced setup consistency and suitability between operators, where all settings are made by the same operator for all AVT inspection systems.
The company additionally showcased SolidProof, an off-line proofing system that provides 100 percent assurance for wide web, narrow web and sheet-fed applications, ensuring that no critical errors have been overlooked in the print production process. The system automatically eliminates conversion errors and undetected defects during the pre-press stage; in doing so, it reduces the need for manual inspection and can bring waste
levels to near-zero. It is part of the new AVT Offline proofing line that also includes SoftProof and CloudProof.
Digital inspection and inkjet quality control engines
AVT also showed its new print quality control engine for inkjet digital presses, one which provides digital printers with a closed loop system for inkjet printing quality by analyzing its
actual performance through the run, and engaging in ongoing communication with the press.
The company unveiled a system that provides full automated inspection
and verification throughout the entire digital printing process. This
combination-product includes the ZeroSet Automated Inspection Workflow, which addresses market needs for inspection on shorter runs and better support for digital printing presses. ZeroSet makes possible universal inspection – meaning even very short runs can be automatically inspected – leading to a direct improvement in overall
quality control for jobs that, previously, may have been left uninspected.
