Grafikontrol to Show Press Controls

MILAN, ITALY | Grafikontrol, supplier of press controls for the graphic industry, will introduce the whole TQC-360° products family at PRINT4ALL, May 29–June 1, 2018, at Fiera Milano in Milan. The line now features two new components dedicated to 100% inspection and statistics of coating, varnish, and cold seal. Following are solutions of quality control and register control for rotogravure, flexo, and offset sectors for packaging and labels:

  • MATRIX: The web viewing system is an area camera that moves across the web taking high quality snapshots of the whole running web. The 6 Mpixel camera resolution is said to ensure high quality and realistic color reproduction. MATRIX can be loaded with multiple options such as statistical inspection, delta color monitoring with ∆E, barcode verification, print repeat monitoring, UV coating visualization, and transparent varnish inspection.
  • MATRIX C/S: This is the new matrix system for simultaneous display of the correct superimposition of the front print with glue or varnish applied on the opposite site (duplex register).
  • LYNEX: A true 100% inspection system that can be used as a stand-alone system or integrated with MATRIX, LYNEX can compare live printing with the PDF file that has been used to produce the printed plates or the gravure cylinders. That provides the operator with the ability to verify if the print matches with the original file.
  • LYNEX-S: This 100% print inspection system for gravure, flexo, offset is dedicated to narrow web and neutral film including all the LYNEX features.
  • LYNEX C/S: System has been designed to inspect the 100% of the web for coating, varnish, or cold-seal on printed or base substrates.
  • CHROMALAB: An in-line real spectrophotometer monitors the color trend of all printed colors; the system provides real time measurement and trends of spectral curves, density, dot gain, L*a*b*, and ∆E.
  • PROGREX: This combination of the functions of MATRIX and LYNEX forms a complete tool that helps the user with each print phase on gravure flexographic and offset presses.
  • CR33-CR34: Register controls for rotogravure and flexographic presses ensures register stability among colors for the entire production and reduces waste.
  • PROCHECK: This is a system for a full defect traceability and removal from printed rolls.

Paolo De Grandis, sales manager and partner in Grafikontrol, says, "The ability to integrate systems has been the key element that customers have appreciated. Integration is at the heart of our TQC-36° concept and fully meets the specifications of the Industry 4.0 project. [Our] products have a modular structure so that customers can start with a configuration and implement it at any time.“
