Baldwin Visions Systems shows inspection and color management advances

Guardian RTM allows press managers to make highly-informed production decisions

Baldwin Vision Systems (BVS) will show its developments in color management, inspection and print automation at Labelexpo Europe 2019. The company will be co-located at the show with AMS SpectralUV, another Baldwin Technology Company.

Along with color and inspection products for the printing industry, BVS will showcase the latest additions to its product portfolio – including Guardian RTM, a new real-time quality monitoring and reporting tool, and significant new capabilities for the ColorTrack software.

According to BVS president Vince Balistrieri: ‘The name BaldwinVision Systems may not yet be familiar to label and narrow web printers. But the BVS product portfolio brings together decades of proven experience from established industry leaders in advanced color and inspection technology.’

In 2018, QuadTech, PC Industries and Web Printing Controls united to form the new BaldwinVision Systems. The resulting combination of businesses and technologies represents a comprehensive portfolio for print process automation, inspection and related services. 

At Labelexpo Europe 2019, BVS will also showcase Guardian PQV 100 percent print inspection that eliminates defects with a more efficient, accurate, data-connected inspection workflow. PQV provides complete print quality verification from prepress through production, reporting and archiving for perfect runs. With Guardian RTM Real-Time Monitoring, printers can track and compare many different production metrics. Press managers can monitor changes as they happen, and make highly-informed decisions about print quality, defect management, and even operator-to-operator performance. Guardian OLP Offline Proofing & Inspection focuses on pre-press proofing and pressroom quality control. Graphic-Vision 500 Series Web Viewing Systemsquickly find defects such as mis-registrations, streaks, voids and fills. For high quality, high accuracy inspection requirements – such as pharmaceuticals, security and banknote – BVS provides products that meet the most exacting standards, with features including sequential data verification, barcode decoding and grading, custom lighting and more.

At Labelexpo Europe 2019, BVS also intends to offer an early preview of a new defect management technology, which the company will launch at drupa 2020 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

For color management, BVS will offer ColorTrack software, which facilitates fast, accurate press-side correction of ink formulations. ColorTrack integrates with ink recipe software to simplify workflow, and reduces the number of ink corrections needed to achieve accurate, optimal color. InkWeigh eliminates trial and error by weighing and tracking ink corrections at the press for each client, each job. Printers can pptimize and reduce leftover storage and ensure full traceability. DeltaCam provides accurate inline spectro measurements, reducing waste and ensuring all printed products are within customers’ color specifications.

BVS will introduce its new ColorTrack Analytics software, which is designed to help printers deliver consistent, accurate color quality and customer reports – no matter what facility, process or materials are used to produce the printed product.
